Realizing that with proper guidance and training, Bhutanese youths are capable of taking up roles in the development process of our country, the third cohort of YI grew in its scope, comprising of members not only from Thimphu but also from Paro, Samtse and Sarpang. They took up establishment of a Young Writer’s Society, Waste Management in Paro Tshongdue vegetable market, Project Clean Samtse and Literary Fiesta respectively. It was during this year that trainings on Representation, Dialogue and Media Literacy were introduced in the YI. In its third year, perhaps the greatest realization has been that the biggest achievement of the YI are the members themselves! Many from the first and second cohorts are now actively engaged in their communities and volunteering on various projects.
