Seoul YWCA did a successful job on the 9th Peace in Asia

 
Peace in Asia is an exchange program for the sake of Burmese women refugee living on the Thai-Burma border, and it has been organized by Seoul YWCA and sponsored by Sungjoo Faoundation. This year marks 9th anniversary of Peace in Asia which has continuously carried on its supporting programs through interactions with the Burmese refugees living near Mae Hong Son.
 
Peace in Asia ultimately and firstly aims to have the Korean youth who join this program experience 'self-reformation' and its secondary goal is to make a change in a society through changes of each participant. Though the depth and length of their change might differ respectively, each and every participant whose mindset, attitude toward life and world view get changed is entrusted to make the world better than ever before, and this is the firm belief and foundation that Peace in Asia has stood upon.
 
Now let's explore what we have done in Thialand though pictures.
