Imagine you are a youth development specialist at a national NGO/CSO in Pakistan and you have been tasked to develop an event called 'Youth Sports Funshop'. 

The Funshop will bring together youth leaders from across Pakistan for a two-day intensive capacity-building and networking programme. Through structured exchanges that will draw on their own experiences, the youth will gain a deeper understanding of the role that sport can play in achieving specific development priorities in Pakistan. The thematic discussions will focus on youth empowerment, health, social inclusion & gender equality, climate change, and prevention of violent extremism (PVE). 


Based on your course learning, write a letter to CEO/ Director of the NGO/CSO explaining how the event could be designed based on following principles: owned by youth; inclusive; respectful; safe and flexible. The letter should be not more than 350 words. You can start the letter from 'Dear Sir/Madam..'
