The three-day workshop titled “Empower+” was organized by Volunteer for Change from 19 June- 21 June 2019.

Similarly, Kribina Pathak, on the Report Writing Session, explained the format and styles of a report in a participatory approach. Lastly, the workshop ended with a CV and Cover Letter Writing session by Rajan Koirala where each participant prepared their complete CV and Cover letter as per his guidelines.
