We are all Ready to sail the seas!
Young people, no matter their status or backgrounds are energetic, vibrant and looking for avenues for meaning and purpose. Understanding their needs, the Foundation for Life runs projects that would support in engaging youths, helping them discover hidden talents and giving meaning to their existence.
On 29 to 30 April, the core group of 40 Youth Leaders from communities in Bangkok and the neighboring provinces gathered for an additional training.
These Youth Leaders who have been trained at various levels in previous camps are sponsored by the Foundation for Life to this training, and they were gathered to help plan for the National Drill Competition event in November 2010, for about 400 boys and girls from all over Thailand. They also attended Workshops on “Life-skills in Relationships and Healthy Attitudes toward the opposite sex".
Besides that, these young leaders were given the opportunity of learning new skills by the Staffs of the Nong Bon Water Sports Center, Bangkok. They now have a wider choice in the use of their free time to better their new-found skills in kayaking, sailing and wind-surfing.
These young people were unanimous in their approval of the training, as can be heard from comments like....
"I will be responsible to prepare for the portion of the Competition program that was delegated to me", Pinyo promised
"The water sport activities were so new and challenging for me!" said Milk,
"I want to do this again!" said Pure and
"I now understand how the opposite sex thinks," said Tew,
We know that these Youths now have better self-esteem and understanding - which is vital foundation for helping others.
