RENEW organized a two-day volunteer conference for Multi-Sectoral Task Force – Community Based Support System (MSTF-CBSS) volunteers from across the country, at Hotel Migmar, Thimphu.
MSTF-CBSS volunteers are individuals who are mindful of social issues and have come forward selflessly with no personal gain other than to make their society a better place. During the conference, the volunteers had the opportunity to interact with stakeholders such as Ministry of Health, Royal Bhutan Police and raise concerns about their efforts and challenges in field and discuss about how partnerships can be strengthened.
There were in-depth deliberations on violence against children, violence against women & girls, and sexual reproductive health & rights issues. The volunteer conference was a pre-program to the observation of International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women.
