The National Service Programme (NSP) Buddhist Class is a national programme with comprehensive coverage. To implement the programme systematically, the YBAM has set up a NSP Special Committee in January 2006 to carry out series of training courses and to work out a suitable syllabus and teaching aids for the NSP trainees. The committee is also set up to study the value of the programme and to draft a long term plan for effective and comprehensive implementation of the programme. To date, there are about 80 NSP camps in the country with about tens of thousands of non-Muslim trainees taking part in this three months training. The NSP not only allow us to introduce Buddhism to the trainees, but also provide us opportunities to recruit young Buddhists, and to identify and train Dharma speakers.
