In collaboration with United Nations Development Program (UNDP) India and United Nations Volunteers (UNV) India, MoYAS has organised an International Youth Exchange through Peer Learning (IYEPL) with the support of UNDP/UNV Sri Lanka. This programme has been developed under a cross-country youth volunteering project “Strengthening Nehru Yuva Kendra Sangathan and National Service Scheme”, which aims to strengthen the two largest youth volunteering schemes in India. Under the exchange program, five selected youth volunteers with experience in volunteering on social issues are given the opportunity to visit Sri Lanka for a one-month immersion and exchange programme. This report is a summary of the inaugural IYEPL programme and the experiences of all the stakeholders involved.
