The Drug Rehabilitation Education and Mentoring (DREAM) programme team in Kottayam organised a two-day residential leadership training for school students, in collaboration with Don Bosco Puthupally & Vimukthi Mission Kottayam, on 5 – 6 September 2022 at Chaitanya Pastoral Centre, Thellakom.

The programme was inaugurated by Mr Sojan Sebastian (Excise Assistant Commissioner, Kottayam) and presided over by Fr. Josh Kanjooparambil sdb (District Director, DREAM Kottayam).
