Sixty-nine children in Mongar attended summer youth engagement programmes to teach reading, dancing, problem-solving, drawings and indoor games.

Organised by the youth centre in Mongar, youth volunteers helped to conduct the programme that will end today.

A youth volunteer, Tsheltrim Lhamo, who is studying in class XII in Mongar High School taught riddles for upper classes and basic maths of addition and subtraction for lower classes in a group of five students.

She said it was fun as well as a good platform for her to share her knowledge and skills with the juniors.

Youth centre’s officiating manager, Dorji Wangchuk, said volunteers are creative and resourceful to impart their knowledge and skills to younger ones. “Only little guidance and coordination are required.”

A parent, Wangmo, said the programmes were resourceful, productive and engaging. “Children get addicted to mobile phones and television at home and such recreational event was necessary.”
