Participants can choose to undertake all three categories of the Award programme or enter directly at any of the three levels.
The IAYP/ DoFE AWARDS Award Programme was initiated in the UK in 1956 as the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award with an aim of motivating young people aged between 14 and 25 years. The concept was to involve them in voluntary self-development activities like individual challenges, encourage personal discovery and growth, self-reliance, perseverance, responsibility to themselves and service to their community.
THE CAMP & SET UP - Snow Monk Camp is situated at the top end of the Salli village on the road leading to Kareri village.
