Youth Meeting in Tanahun

We are back in Nepal!
Our new Host District is Tanahun and we live in beautiful Damauli.

Yesterday we had our first meeting with some of the youth we will be working with. Our Local Contact Person helped us to arrange the meeting together with a couple of Red Cross teacher-sponsor volunteers. The President of Tanahun District Chapter as well as the District Education Officer were also present. We introduced ourselves, the Youth Delegate Exchange Programme and what the Norwegian Red Cross does in Norway. The participants came from 8 different schools were they now will be forming new Red Cross Youth Circles. They shared with us what it is like to grow up and be a youth in their community. Together we identified needs and discussed what kind of activities the Red Cross Youth can do to meet some of the challenges they face.

 

We would also like to share som pictures from Damauli.

Love from L & L
