‘We’ for Change in its very own uniqueness tried to teach the young students of Terai region mainly in Province 2 constituting district Saptrai about civic engagement, good governance and the on going peace process of Nepal . Peace First Jamboree was a 2 day program where 100 young students were targeted to promote youths in civic engagement and peace building. The program was funded by Peace First, USA. The main objective of this project was to help school going children learn about the democratic process of the nation through fun filled atmosphere as growing is always best when they are exposed to best learning methods.
During our visit a participant, Nima Gurung, 17 years old said, “I learnt from Peace First that war among nations was contagious, and so was peace. So, whatever the circumstances may be we should all strive for peace in coming days, especially after the end of our 10 year long armed conflict in Nepal”.
