  1. The OEC seems to be an icon of hope for younger generation which can play more concrete role in sensitizing youth (both educated and others alike) towards realizing their full potential. We are sure that all past, current and prospective graduates of higher educational institutions will always be fit for the future challenges and circumstance but there is risk for those youth who are still in the streets of GB without education, skills or attitudes. Can you join hands and heads together as a civil society institution for raising awareness among the youth for realizing their full potential and enable to be fit for future challenges. Best wishes.
