Organizing Committee|Creation of YPES
A number of formal and informal meetings of active members of YPPF were held in July-August 2006 to discuss the future of YPPF, and to plan a grand Jashan-e-Azadi show. The meetings were attended by around 20-25 members (in total), who had been actively participating in YPPF activities.
Based on our discussions, we came up with the idea of creating YPES - A friendly community of Pakistani Youth. A team of 14 founding members was formed. The same team worked on preparing a draft of mission and objectives for the new society. Since then, a lot of members have committed there time and efforts for YPES's cause.
