Project Description: 

Ms Tan Yen Lin from Dunman High School, Singapore, expressed her experience in this programme with the following words: “It was definitely an eye-opening, life changing trip. I see things differently now. The trip beyond the objectives of assisting the locals in the communities of Bangladesh was a journey of self-discovery”.
Every year, HOPE’87 arranges youth exchange programmes between Bangladesh and other countries, such as Singapore, Sri Lanka, Thailand and India, to promote youth networks, the sharing of experiences and creating opportunities to gain practical knowledge in youth development and youth employment initiatives. In 2011/2012 three exchange programmes were arranged on reciprocal basis and 43 students and young people took part in the programme.
