Forty one students from 10 schools in Paro dzongkhag attended a three youth camp at Nemjo, Paro last week. 

Royal Institute of Governance and Strategic Studies alumni in Paro organised the camp to help instill a sense of responsibility for independent learning, impart age-old values and practices, and introduce students to analytical skills and problem solving. 

The participants brainstormed on critical thinking, entrepreneurial mindset, thought model and Bhutanese culture and values. In order to facilitate experiential learning, a field visit to Drugyel Dzong was organised so as to complement theoretical learning they have had under culture and tradition.

The camp was part of the Supporting Holistic Education and Reflective Action and Behaviour (SHERAB) project formulated by 30 cohort of Foundation Leadership Program-2. Volunteers from Singapore and some members of the cohort facilitated the programme.
