The YuMetta Foundation recently held a youth camp called "Go To The People" in Northeast India. The camp took place at the Don Bosco Socio Technical Institute in Mission Chariali, Tezpur Assam from January 6th to January 11th, 2023.

The camp is a youth initiative program that targets socially aware and socially sensitive young people between the ages of 18 and 30 from various fields all over India. The goal of the camp is to help young people understand themselves, their inner strengths, and their inner values, and to search for ways to live a meaningful life.

The participants came from different educational and occupational backgrounds, such as doctors, pharmacists, NGO workers, accountants, salespeople, and students from different fields.

The main theme of the camp was "Journey Inwards." The six-day camp featured self-introspection, debates and brainstorming sessions, group discussions, role-playing by participants, games, and fun activities. Topics discussed during the camp included Gender Equality, Discrimination, Sexuality, Addiction, Positive Mental Health, and Finding the Purpose of Life.

Experts were invited to speak on various topics during the camp. Rituparna Neog, the Founder & Director of Akam Foundation, was invited as a resource person for the session on Gender Equality. Dr. Priyadarsh Vijay Ture and Dr. Nilesh Mohite were also invited to speak on Addiction and Mental Health, respectively.
