It was my task to convince maximum youth of Gilgit Baltistan and Chitral to attend this event so that they get aware of the youth policies. For this purpose Barged organized five meetings in Islamabad. I actively participated in those meetings and promised to arrange 150 youth. I, successfully convinced 20 girls from Youth Development center Rawalpindi representing different districts of Gilgit Baltistan and Chitral apart from YDC, I also convinced 130 participants from different areas who were representing GB. Bargad forum acknowledged my efforts and awarded me with the certificate. Thank you Hashoo Foundation for helping me discover my potentials.” Exclaimed Farzana
