2nd Winter Youth Engagement Programme
Gyelpozhing Higher Secondary School, Monggar
29th December 2014 – 29th January 2015



Organized by the Department of Youth and Sports, Ministry of Education in collaboration with His Majesty’s Secretariat and Office of the Gyaltshab, Gyalpozhing, Mongar. 821 female students aged between 14-20 years and studying in classes III-XII in 90 schools located in six eastern Dzongkhags and one Thromde.


In accordance with the command of His Majesty the King, the month-long 2nd Winter Youth Enrichment Services Camp (WYESC) was organized to engage the socio-economically disadvantaged students (girls) meaningfully, enhance their knowledge & skills, build confidence & competence, bring them at level playing field with other students and keep them away from vulnerable situations like working on the construction sites and roads during winter vacation.


From the experience gained last year, a wholesome approach was adopted so that the students could avail the opportunity not only to acquire knowledge and skills but also to enable them to grow personally and live dignified lives.  Therefore, the program primarily focused on strengthening their English and building individual social skills through various programmes like life skills, scouting, guidance, counseling as well as other skills development activities like information technology, knitting, basket making, candle and soap making, and recreational activities like art, dance, games and sports. The programmes were further enriched through guest lectures on spirituality, drugs, nature & environment and other topics related to adolescent reproductive & sexual health, hygiene & sanitation, etc.


Morning activities were more formal, focusing on academic, life skills education, counseling classes, adolescent reproductive health, spirituality and other guest lectures. Afternoons were devoted to club activities while evenings were spent on games and sports, practicing and conducting competitions. In addition, educational documentaries and other select movies were screened occasionally after dinner.
