19th October, 2016 The Girls' Club members were notified about various exchange programs available for Bangladeshi Students, by Ms. Tahnia Shaheed, and were introduced to the selection procedure of the Kennedy-Lugar Youth Exchange and Study Program. In due course, a session on how to start off community service projects with little or no resources was conducted. The session also broke down on how to overcome parental and societal barrier in order to take leadership initiatives. The participants got to share a pressing issue in their community and discuss ideas aimed towards solving the problems. Working together, they tried figuring out the underlying causes of the issues, and come up with feasible solutions for it, alongside finding resources for their projects.
