In our everyday experiences, we are blessed with beautiful women who grace our lives in the form of mothers, wives, girlfriends, sisters, grandmothers, aunties, friends, colleagues, acquaintances, etc. They step into our lives and leave an indelible mark.

True, they make our lives beautiful but they face difficult realities in the family, social, political, cultural, economic aspects of their lives. Despite all that, many have stood out to make their voice heard and taken up leadership roles at different levels in the society.

Training on the method of the YCW

In September this year I was given a precious opportunity to attend the ICYCW Asia Leaders’ Meeting of training and exchange held in Butuan-City, Philippines.

As a part of the preparation, Korea YCW studied the situation of life of young people in our country in order to bring to the meeting young people’s concerns, worries and hopes to share with other YCWs in Asia. This included reflection on: Internet addiction, extremely expensive tuition at the University and obligatory military service for young men.
