SEALNet Project Cambodia 2018

Project Date: August 5th, 2018 – August 18th, 2018
Project Location: Siem Reap, Cambodia
Project Theme (or Subtitle): “Less is More”

SEALNet Project Cambodia 2018 – Siem Reap under the theme of “Less is More,” aims to inspire and empower the youths in Siem Reap to come together and work hand-in-hand to solve waste management issues through “Small Tests of Change” principle.

This project is bringing SEALNet to Siem Reap for the third time in order to continue the sustainability. Based on the two pillars of SEALNet – leadership, and service – the mission is to build awareness of waste management issue among the local beneficiaries, instill service leadership passion in them and equip them with practical waste management practices to make sustainable impacts in their communities.

SEALNet Project Indonesia 2018

Project Date: July 15, 2018 – July 28, 2018
Project Location: North Kalimantan, Indonesia
Project Subtitle: Better border, better future

Education can be both informal and formal, and one cannot go far without one another. Formal education is a luxury, and not everyone can afford it. To the students in Srinanti village (North Kalimantan) at the border area between Indonesia and Malaysia, that chance is even smaller. Only 59.9% of children of schooling age attends school, and they spend averagely 8.49 years in school. Most of them end up getting jobs in factory or getting married, which manifests the never-ending vicious cycle.

In addition to service work with Srinanti village, under another pillar – leadership – the aim is to nurture a new generation of service leaders from the mentees of Tarakan and mentors (project members) from across the world. Their passion and commitment to service will serve greater people in the future.

SEALNet Project Philippines 2018

Project date: July 22 2018-August 4 2018
Project location: Cebu, Philippines
Project Theme: Mental Health Awareness

Mental health is a commonly misunderstood aspect of a person’s entire well-being. The conversation on mental health awareness is a growing issue in the Philippines. There is then a need to push this conversation into concrete ways of spreading information and raising awareness about the realities of mental health. This can be done through community and school based mental health awareness projects.

Project Philippines 2018 aims to address this need by empowering young leaders to conduct mental health awareness projects in their communities and schools. The project works towards mental health awareness through youth empowerment.

First, it aims to educate students about mental health and mental disorders, essentially making them more mental health aware. Second, the project will equip student leaders with leadership and project management skills so that they will be empowered to organize their awareness projects in their own schools and communities. This project aims to start ripples of change and awareness among young Filipinos and Cambodians.

SEALNet Project Vietnam 2018

Project Date: July 22 – August 5, 2018
Project Location: Hue City, Vietnam
Project Theme (or Subtitle): Social Emotional Learning

One of humanity’s basic desires is pursuing happiness. Humans have their own way of defining their “happiness” and none of those are alike and comparable. It takes a lot of stages to pursue happiness and an important one would be Autonomy. To be autonomous means to be capable of connecting with oneself (1) and to establish healthy relationships with the surrounding world – which includes human and non-human factors (such as nature and animals).
