by Ram Neupane
The program was a grand success as the large number of participants involved actively. We received significant amount of queries about the membership procedure for YPPO by non-YPPO participants. We have given them the link to YPPO website. This program was successful in drawing attention of scientific minds to YPPO and has given a new hope to them about the role of YPPO to influence the future.
Youth Planet Protector Organization (YPPO)-Nepal organized “YPPO-Nepal One Day Workshop” at Agriculture and Forestry University, Rampur, Chitwan. The workshop, being the first program of YPPO-Nepal had following major objectives:

  • To bring together all members of YPPO-Nepal in the same place and introduce each other.

  • To orient the members about the major objectives and activities of YPPO.

  • To introduce YPPO to the general audience and motivate them to tie up with YPPO activities.

  • Experience sharing by YPPO-Nepal representative R.C Neupane who recently participated in Syngenta USAID Ag Students Connection Program, Vietnam.



The program was conducted at the Entomology lab of Agriculture and Forestry University. About 60 participants actively participated in the program. The program was started at 11:00 am Nepali time and was closed at 2:00pm. YPPO-Nepal Executive Committee member Manish Gautam was the anchorman and facilitated the program. The program was divided into three major parts which are discussed below.

At the end of his presentation, there was Question Answer session.

Mr. Neupane’s presentation gave a direction and insight to participants about the scope of Modern Agriculture and the energy and vision he has associated with YPPO-Nepal.

Part Three: Presentation on Gene Therapy: Prospects and Possibilities by Prof. Dr. I.P Kadariya
On the third part of the workshop, Dr. Kadariya, Director of Center for Biotechnology of AFU presented on Gene Therapy. His presentation was based on his PhD Dissertation on Gene Therapy.

His talks were focused on the possibilities of Gene therapy to cure the present day challenges of Medical Science like Cancer. His talk about gene sequencing and gene transfer gathered attention. Participants were excited about the comparison of performance of normal mice and transgenic mice on the ovarian cancer. Dr. Kadariya received many questions from the participants. The questions were diverse ranging from the limitations and ethics of gene therapy to the possibilities of this technology in developing country like Nepal. His presentation was of about an hour and half. Inclusion of presentation on Gene Therapy on the workshop impressed the scientific motive of YPPO to solve the problems.
