On 30th July, 2017, Sunwah GYLN Cambodia Chapter had visited to Tropiang Krosang Community Pre-school in Kompong Speu Province, about 65km from Phnom Penh, the capital city of Cambodia. This community pre-school is providing the pre-school education to around sixty 4~6-year-old children in Tropiang Krosang village by a 60-year-old teacher.
In the early morning, eight of Sunwah GYLN Cambodia Chapter members and volunteers had departed from Phnom Penh, and spent nearly three hours to reach the community school, since the access road to that village was in bad condition in this rainy season.
When we arrived the school, those children w…

Human trafficking is one of the acute issues that many countries have been coping with. Considerably, Vietnam is primarily a source country for women and children trafficked for commercial, sexual exploitation and forced labor. In order to fight against this inhuman behavior, it is urgent that everyone jointly take action, especially the young people who are communication ambassadors, contribute and play a far more important role than others.

The visits to Dieu Giac Pagoda Orphanage Center (18 Jan and 5 Feb 2017)
The Sunwah GYLN Ho Chi Minh City Chapter paid two visits to the Dieu Giac Orphanage on the 18 January and the 5 February 2017. The Orphanage is the home for over 100 children ranging from preschool age to over 18. Through conversations with the nuns here, we understood more about the children’s lives and circumstances, as well as what they need both physically, mentally and emotionally.
In order to help these children to have a more cheerful Tet Holiday, on the 18 January 2017, our members of Sunwah GYLN HCMC Chapter had gathered and organized play groups …

Virtual Reality (VR) technology has been a hot topic being discussed a lot in these two years. As a GYLN member and having background in software technology, I brought up the idea of exposing this new technology to more young people and accelerating the social progress in terms of technology.

While people in many countries were busy with “trick-or-treat” during Halloween, four members from Japan (Tokyo) Chapter, Tomo, Taiki, Peace, and I, participated in the Kyushu International Gathering trip 2016. It was the very first gathering to be held in Japan, and we were excited to have all of the chapter members flying all the way from their countries to ours. Unfortunately, most of the members were not familiar with the region, so it would not be as successful as it was without Sunwah Foundation and the generous dedication of Kyushu chapter. In this regard, I would like to also thank Ms. Betty Chan, Executive Director of Sunwah Foun…
