Youths were also made engaged in a group discussion forming 7 different groups of 6 people where they were asked to discuss on the strength they have as a residence of Lamjung, problems they have been facing and goals they would like to achieve. They also enlisted the solutions of problems that they had themselves put forward previously. This made the participants realize the fact that we must move forward and try to solve our problems in the first place and create space ourselves rather than hoping everything to happen from government.
