Nalanda youths fuelled-up for 2023!
From 30 December 2022 to 2 January 2023, 20 Nalanda youth leaders and members gathered for their annual Fuel-up Camp to discuss the Youth Centre’s progress and gear up for the year ahead. After an active and joyful year of reaching out with various youth programmes and leadership exchanges, they also reflected on their journey on a personal and organisational level.
