1st visit of 2009…. BLAST!!!!

It was one of the most exciting days of the year… Well, atleast for the visionaries team members, it was. After spending approximately 4 months in planning and structuring YV’s vision and execution for 2009, we finally came to that day where we could execute it.

and…… (drumrolls…..)

 It was awesome!!!

With almost 30 volunteers and team members, we brought lots of excitement, joy and fun to the Agathian’s boys, who were now situated at a new house (bigger and definitely, a lot more comfortable, we felt). We were happy that the children had a better home to live in, and we were glad to be able to bring in some joy into their Saturday and extremely grateful that we got to share that joy with them. The first activity, revolved around everything fun and anything icebreaking. We also wanted to create a sense of belonging to the project. Hence, each child spent time making/decorating his own nametag and file.

)

"I want the red file. and my name tag is very nice right?" :)team members: we want name tags too!!! hehe

intense sword fighting between the kids and team members

A brand New Year, with YV on its tail!

Its a brand new year y’all!

Ushered along with it all the good wishes, and relentless dreams;

Sweet hopes and Young Visionaries 2008/2009!

That’s right, YV is back, bolder and more determined than ever to make a difference in the lives of others, no matter how small they might be. It is our hope that the simple measures that we take, the shared laughter, time and thoughts would enrich the lives of the children as much as they would enrich ours.

For each child is unique and special.

And deserve all that life has to offer.

To know more about YV, read on!

“Young Visionaries 2008/2009 is a continuity of a project born in year 2003 by AIESEC in Universiti Malaya. It is aimed to bring better changes to less fortunate, abandoned or orphaned children in orphanages and shelters within the Klang Valley. This term, Young Visionaries focuses on two homes, The Agathians Shelter and Assunta’s Children Society, both located at Seksyen 8, Petaling Jaya, Selangor. Activities organised fortnightly in both homes will commence in January till April. Activities organised are designed to meet the children’s many developmental needs such as security, confidence, love, amongst many others. Apart from that, international interns from countries such as Japan, Netherlands, Sweden are brought in as volunteers where they live with the children and help them for a duration of 8-weeks.

Young Visionaries is an initiative by the youth for unfortunate children in need. It is a project that aims not just to make a difference in the lives of the children but in the lives of the youth involved. It is aimed to create a sense of responsibility towards the community and the unfortunate, especially children.

We hope that through this initiative the special needs of these unfortunate children will be met and the children will have the opportunity to enjoy a more wholesome development through interactive learning and active participation.”

Watch this space,

YV 08/09 will be blasting through!

And if you would like to join us, come onboard; we welcome you with open arms! =)

Happy New Year Everyone!


Yours truly,

The YV 08/09 Team
