Kalyana Mitta Foundation, initiated as Buddhist Youth Empowerment Program in 2008, was officially registered as a local NGO in 2013 based on the demand of its alumni. The BYEP has been run for six years (2008 – 2013) throughout the country by empowering young Buddhists to become socially engaged for social transformation. The program mainly results in 34 Alumni Core Groups (most of them have been transformed into CBOs) and reached out more than 1500 youth as a strong network among them. Some alumni are actively engaging in variety of development sectors such as community development, gender equality, environmental conservation and social justice movement such as land grabbing issues and public awakening. Evolutionary development of KMF is very unique and bottom up process as it was based on Alumni’s demand and their consultation.
