“We believe that by working together, we can create a safer and more empowering environment for children and youth in Meghalaya,” said Shannon. “We are excited about the potential collaboration with the government and other stakeholders to achieve this goal.”

During our discussion he suggested partnering with other Government Departments. The outcome of the discussion was that the Hon’ble Chief Minister Conrad Sangma suggested partnering more with State Government departments and exploring existing programs that the Government is implementing for the children and youth in the State.
