During the discussion the speakers said, YPSA is moving forward economically. Besides, YPSA has been implementing several programs for the development of the society including education, health and agriculture. But we are not able to fulfill the dream of YPSA by its works. Those who are implementing various programs in the organization they need to be more responsible towards YPSA. Those who are currently working on various projects or programs they need to think not only about the project or program but also think about overall development of the organization. For achieving YPSA’s goal, it is necessary to increase the coordination with other departments of the organization, not limit within the projects or programs of economic development department. We must regularly inform to KM4D department on all programs information, which is implemented through economic development department. Every people need to follow the organization’s child protection policy, gender policy, financial policy and other policies before make a work plan of project. It is imperative that each of the implemented activities be publicized through all types of social media, including the organization’s own web, so that everyone would be more sincere in this regard.
Finally, the coordination meeting concludes with the announcement of such coordination meetings in every three months.
