Cox’s Bazar is a disaster prone area. In each year the people of Cox’s Bazar face several disasters like flood, cyclone, earthquake etc. So for enhancing the local capacities to mitigate and to cope with the disaster, YPSA planned to develop a school based disaster risk reduction approach through developing volunteers. YPSA arranged a 3 days training workshop on “Disaster Risk Reduction” in South Mithachara High School at Ramu under the project of “YES Center” with the assistance of ESPRIT, in collaboration with YOU Foundation from 14th to 16th February 2017.
