The annual “Miyaheli” camp scheduled for September

The annual “Miyaheli” camp organized by UNDP in association with Ooredoo is scheduled to commence on the 29th September 2017. The camp is scheduled to go on for 3 days.

The camp this year is targeted to youth between the age of 18 and 30 of the northernmost Atolls of Maldives.

The “Miyaheli” camp aims to bring groups of youth together to discuss issues faced by the youth of Maldives in their everyday lives and to hopefully find out creative and innovative solutions for such challenges. UNDP said that the last year’s Miyaheli camp was a huge success and that numerous creative ideas were brought up by the youth that took part in the camp.

Submission of ideas and proposals for this year’s camp is already underway. The due date for theses submissions is the 30th of this month.

The top 5 ideas will be selected and a group of youth responsible for the production of this idea will be brought to the “Miyaheli” camp as per the statement of UNDP.

The Thematic Areas for this year’s camp are Building youth movements, empowering women in the political sphere, creating a peaceful and tolerant community, supporting the victims of sexual and gender-based abuse and sustainable and innovative development solutions.
