BJTF successfully conducted a two days advocacy and awareness program as part of the project ‘Enhancing Youth Employability through Meaningful Engagement’ funded by European Union with support from Helvetas at Punakha and Wangdue Dzongkhag. The advocacy and awareness program covered TTI Khuruthang, Punakha Central School, Ugyen Academy and Bajothang Higher Secondary Schools.

The advocacy program was conducted to raise awareness and to bring about a positive mindset change regarding skilled jobs. BJTF also disseminated useful information on the labor market trend and opportunities. The accompanying inspirational entrepreneurs also motivated the students through their personnel experience sharing.
