Mero Sachi Project in Nepal (Aug 14-25), Prakash Neupane

    Hello and hi to everyone its me prakash neupane. I am the student from law background. I have recently completed my ll.b program I.e (5 years bachelor programs in law) from kathmandu school of law. I am really excited to be the part of this student exchange programe which is going to be held on august (14 to 24). I am one of the representative from nepal as a nepalese student.
    The student exchange programe has always been one of the best way to explore each other ideas, to know culture and the way of living of the people from different society and country aswell.This sort of programe helps to enchance the creatvity of the students and helps to develop innovative ideas too. So, I am always eager and enthusiastic towards the art of life that people are living and the culture, tradition and legal system that they are acquainted, not only of nepal but of different countries.
    Therefore this programe might be really fruitful and productive for me to acquire the knowledge from different aspect I.e social, economical, religious, legal and cultural aspect of Japense society directly. Even the Japanese students can extract lots of information from me regarding the way of life, tradition, culture and other different aspect of nepalese society. Briefly this programe is going to be the benchmark programe to understand the Japanese society and Nepalese society. Hoping for the success of this programe.

Mero Sachi Project in Nepal (Aug 14-25), Yoshiki Seki

Mero Sachi Project in Nepal (Aug 14-25), Self-introductions of the Japanese Participants.(9)
sabai rai Namaste!Mero nam Yoshiki seki and I'm a freshman of Sophia University Japan.
I major in global-studies because I'm interested in development educatio...n.
First, I would like to tell you why I joined this tour. Actually I lived in Nepal for 1and half year when I was class 10.
Staying in Nepal for long time was not easy for me at first. Different culture,different food, and specially everyday's power cut... The life in Nepal was much different from that of japan.
But those were not big problem for me. Because people around me(specially my nepali host family and friends) supported me so much. I was often moved by their kindness. I had never experienced those kindness in japan!
I love Nepal from bottom of my heart. so I was very sad about what happened in Nepal 3month ago.
It's hard to describe in words how I felt when I first heard about the news that big earthquake happened in Nepal. I was very sad,but soon I decided to take action for Nepal.
That is why I decided to join this tour.
Now, our team members are working very hard in japan. As you know we are student so there are not so many thing that we can do, but we are trying our best for this project.
We are very looking forward to seeing you guys!!!
And I can't wait for speaking Nepali too!

Mero Sachi Project in Nepal (Aug 14-25), Yuto Sato

Mero Sachi Project in Nepal (Aug 14-25), Self-introductions of the Japanese Participants.(7)
Hey,guys! I’m Yuto, Yuto Sato. Nice to meet you! This is my first year of Sophia University and I enjoy this university life!
However, what do you think about G...od? Ya, this is so big question for everyone y’know. It seems that some of Japanese young people didn’t believe some religions. Why? And what they’re basis? Or, is it impossible to solve the issue through Interfaith dialogue, not by force? That’s what I want to learn in university; religions study.
Anyway, I join this study tour because I want to find myself. I didn’t find out what I want to do at the future now. I hope this tour experience make me more strong.
Of course, I'm looking forward to the day I can meet you guys!

Allow me to use this opportunity to offer my thanks.
Thank you everyone who support me and thanks for this amazing project.
What makes this world beautiful?

Mero Sachi Project in Nepal (Aug 14-25), Self-introductions of the Japanese Participants.(4)
Hello!!! I’m kento KOSHIGAE, a freshman of Sophia University. I major in global-studies.
I want to work not only for myself but also for others in the future: ...for my family, for those who have supported me in many ways, for our society and for those who are in need, I want to work especially hard for those who face severe poverty in the world. Therefore, I would like to study global issues such as environmental problems and the gap between the rich and the poor.
I ‘d like to talk about why I’m here. After entering Sophia University, I spent my days aimlessly. When I saw my sister study hard to make her dream come true, I thought I had to do something to change myself. Last May, I happened to get the information about this program. I thought it would make me change in some ways. I signed up for it.
I’m looking forward to study together!!
Let’s do what we can for now! There is nothing we cannot do!!!!
Thank you!!!!!!!!!

Hello, everyone. I’m haruka SHIBATA, a freshman of Sophia University. I omit the explanation of my faculty since Mitsuhiro has already stated it. But I’m intere...sted in politics especially, so I’ll major it in the future.

I’m really looking forward to go to Nepal. I want know much charm of Nepal.

State of Children in Indonesia

State of Children in Indonesia 

  Right after a recent economic boom in Indonesia, almost one third of the population continues to live under the poverty line. Since then this country has not succeeded in improving the living conditions of all its families. And also many children on the remote islands of Indonesia are deprived of enough access to food, water and healthcare. 
  The next state of children in this country is the high child mortality rate, where nearly more than 40% of Indonesian children die before the age of 5. Newborns, for another example, are the victims of several diseases like low weight which is very much common in this country. More than 7,500 children live in the streets of the capital. 
The picture was taken recently in Jakarta where two school kids pass by the five street kids. It is indeed disconcerting to know this large number of children being affected. These children, who often leave their homes after experiencing domestic violence, sexual abuse or poverty, are bound to put themselves to their own devices in the streets. They struggle to get money and food in order to survive in these unsanitary conditions. Getting married at the young age is another phase of life here. Many young girls get married before they turn 18, mainly in remote and underprivileged regions. And still the tradition continues to survive. On the other hand, many children are under child labor. As they have to meet their basic needs, most of them are bound to involve in domestics and agricultural labors. 
 Despite Indonesian law grants free education to everyone, this law has not been applied in all the states. A large number of Indonesian children do attend primary schools. However an alarming number of these children do not continue on to the secondary level. The need to earn money becomes a higher priority than education, which not only happens in Indonesia but in all parts of Asian countries.

Reading Under Stress!

Reading Under Stress!

 Yes, I believe most readers and students around the globe face too much stress. It's depressing to listen to teenager students with soulless eyes telling you that they have nothing to look forward to in life because they are just too tired. We go to schools, colleges, and universities to study. But I guess most people don't understand the purpose of studying.
    In many Asian societies the purpose of education is not personal development, but rather a way to screen the elite from the rabble. You don't go to school to learn about the world and yourself, you go to become number one. Today's students are ranked on their ability to memorize answers of their respective subjects which I think have no relevance to their future careers. It's not just a personal tragedy, but also a national one. Singapore students are ranked as the smartest students in whole Asia. On the contrary, those students are also on the highest ranks for facing too much stress. The same exists in HK, Korea, Japan and China. Personally, I've known many students at my own university who are ranked the best, but in my experience they are terrible at thinking out of the box and coming up with new ideas or new ways to get things done. Do well in school and you're set for life, fail and you're screwed forever. That's what people say!

    If students are already burnt out of 16 with these silly ideas, they won't have the passion, creativity, and imagination to change the world when they're 30. Our world depends on today's generation of kids. And we must change the way people think, act and speculate about education.
