Last November 2009. I attend the SEAChange Youth Forum in Malaysia.
In this forum, youths across all age groups display the desire to provide more for their family and/or community. We see problems in their lives and society, and want to be able to do something about it. What’s stopping us? Ourselves – our personal habits, lifestyle, knowledge, ability, and wealth. Hence the drive for personal change. But is it all about personal gain? Apart from Malaysia and Singapore, stories from youths across the region strongly suggest that personal change is not just about what we can gain for themselves, but what wecan do for others.
Therefore we need your support to help us enhance the developing of IOV Indonesia Youth section and link with another youth around the world.
With support from Mr. George Frandsen IOV USA, and our friends Olvin Valentin, we decide to become IOV Indonesia Youth Section.
About IOV Indonesia:
