Despite the government’s efforts to improve the living condition of this part of the population with a variety of engagement of the youth itself, many of the youth face diverse problems and live with constant life challenges.

 Rabha is one of the “peer educator” in HOLLA 1 who received the AC training. She became an AC facilitator and delivered the AC training in two communities for total of 70 community young actors. This engagement with the community and youth specifically allowed and motivated her to become more youth-centred, and to emphasize on the importance of engaging youth with the community at that grass root level in order to give youth the empowerment they need – since it is through constant and frequent little positive engagement opportunities in that first place that will allow us to accomplish total empowerment in the long run.
