Laguna Province hosts APYE 2017 Local Immersion program

Youth Development Affairs

 July 21, 2017

 

CALAMBA CITY, Laguna – Under the leadership of Governor Ramil L. Hernandez, the Province of Laguna hosted this year’s 4th Asia Pacific Youth Exchange (APYE) Local Immersion Program. A total of 74 young delegates from South Korea, Thailand, Nepal, Cambodia, India, Vietnam, and China livedwith their respective adoptive families in selected barangays in the cities of Santa Rosa, Biñan, and Cabuyao from July 14 to 19, 2017.  They were joined by APYE members from the Philippines.

In the closing ceremonies held on the last day at Club Sol y Viento in this city, Governor Hernandez congratulated and commended the foreign delegates for their commitment to a noble cause, that of helping their fellow human beings by working hand in hand with their particular governments, and preparing themselves to be future leaders in their own right.

The purpose of the Local Immersion is to expose the delegates to a culture different from their own-to study the people’s way of life, gathering data and information as they go.  This is in support of the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations in its bid to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all people, to name a few.
