sport program continues…

posted in culture | by

The sport coalition in action program run by bhutan+partners, the Youth Development Fund and the Department of Youth and Sports in Bhutan is developing gradually. After having started a basketball team, the Bhutan program partners will further focus on new sports activities to attract youth and to support them finding jobs or vocational training. A remarkable development is the enrollment of several Chang JiJi youth basketball players back into school or computer courses. Some of them however continue using drugs and require extra efforts of the program team in Thimphu.
