My Dream Come True

Expedition AGAPE Malaysia 2012
Name: Gillian Valerie Chong Tze Yen
Age: 33
Occupation: Tax Manager
Allocation: RM 63,000
Project: Expedition AGAPE Malaysia 2012

Children in shelter homes are always at the receiving end. While charity is a good thing, it cannot be easy for the recipients, who often suffers from the loss of confidence. Seldom are these children called upon to make a difference in others' lives. Expedition AGAPE Malaysia aims to do just that: empower the children to improve the lives of others.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

WHAT ?
Expedition AGAPE Malaysia 2012 is a 6-month personal development project for children from shelter homes.

WHY ?
Being dependant on others has made a dent in some of these children's self-confidence and self-esteem. The children are seldom given a chance to prove their ability to lead and motivate. The objective of Expedition AGAPE Malaysia is to break this barrier and train them to be future leaders.

HOW ?
The program involves training 20 youth from several shelter homes with character building, leadership empowerment and personality development for 6 months. The youths will then plan and lead a 9-day expedition to an underprivileged community in Simunjan, Sarawak and perform community service activities to benefit the host village. Expedition AGAPE Malaysia 2012 will develop these youths to become stronger individuals!
