The Menjejaki Kampong Kitani (Exploring Our Village) programme concluded with a certificate presentation at the Community Hall in Kampong Sungai Liang recently.

The certificates were presented by Belait District Officer Ramlee bin Haji Jamudin, who also viewed handicrafts made by the participating youth during the two-day programme.

Also present were the Acting Village Head of Kampong Sungai Liang Haji Mohd Ibrahim bin Datu Maharaja Setia Dian, and Head of the Youth and Sports Department in the Belait District Gaung Jamit.

Organised by the Youth and Sports Department, the programme saw the involvement of 23 youth aged 15-25 from government and private schools, as well as educational institutions in the Belait District, particularly the Institute of Brunei Technical Education (IBTE) campus.

During the two days and one night spent at Kampong Sungai Liang, the youth learnt more about its traditional history through ‘One Village One Product’ (1K1P) activities, a handicrafts session and cultural displays at the village.
