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.

“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.”
