Members of the three winning and runner up teams of the National Leadership Engine (NLE) 2020 received their cheques today at the NPCC from the hands of the Executive Director, Mr. Ashit Gungah.
The Executive Director, while reminding them of the importance of this highly ambitious national project, further encouraged the team members to continuously nurture their leadership skills for the betterment of our society.
“Our youth are our greatest assets. We need to create the right environment for them to evolve and participate in the socioeconomic development and progress of our country. The NLE platform has proven to be a fruitful effort of the NPCC in this direction and we are glad to note that youth across the country are increasingly taking interest in this initiative,” Mr. Gungah pointed out.
Besides, the Executive Director of the NPCC also hinted that the NPCC will soon unveil the NLE Action Drivers (NLEAD) network for which a productivity committee will be set up. The purpose of the NLEAD in each region is to provide a platform for the participants of NLE to continuously demonstrate their leadership capabilities at community level through the implementation of projects and inspiring other youth to become leaders in a spirit to keep the engine moving.
During the get-together, the members of the three different teams got the opportunity to talk about their projects and their experience of the NLE adventure. They also shared about the challenges they faced during the implementation of their projects as well as some tips that could make the NLE initiative more appealing to the youth in the future.
