Project Description: 

In order to provide young people with networking opportunities and the chance to share experiences while developing practical knowledge, HOPE'87-Bangladesh organised a number of workshops, training sessions and youth exchange programs in Bangladesh and abroad. This year, a national workshop with the title "SAARC Social Charter - Youth Opportunity" has been organised in cooperation with the Family Planning Association of Bangladesh (FPAB). About 40 national and local representatives from youth organisations came together with government officials who attended the workshop.

A recommendation was also submitted to the Department of Youth Development and Ministry of Planning to forward it to the South Asian Association of Regional Cooperation (SAARC) headquarters to incorporate the recommendations made by the young people into the SAARC Social Charter.
