Fulfilling the human resource requirement for announcing, sound engineering and technical matters within the YAN youth network whilst being praised by the help of the society, YAN radio was successfully webcasted across the country via YouTube and Facebook on 9th 10th and 11th of June. The trilingual webcast comprised discussions with artist, drug prevention programs, YAN youth network awareness programs, live musical programs, and drug prevention promotional recordings in between programs.

The participation of upcoming child actors and actresses, singers and dancers enabled to create a good first impression on them about the YAN network, and the word of mouth within such a group became a massive benefit for our future endeavors.
