The USAID Planning and Local Governance Project (PLGP) supports the youth groups in Bulqiza and Cerrik through inclusive, creative, and community-strengthening events and afterschool extra-curricular activities. The PLGP experts, in collaboration with Peace Corps volunteers in Bulqiza, organized a field day of outdoor activities with the Bulqiza Youth Board. Twelve active members of the group spent quality time and bonded together through various team building exercises and activities.
The exercises and games helped them get to know each other, build trust, communicate, develop relationships, and most importantly learn to work together. The activity created a productive environment for building joint strategies and brainstorming on lessons learned and things to improve in the future.
