(VJEP 2016 ベトナムメンバーの第2回勉強会)
Our meeting last Saturday was quite an exciting one because everyone has gotten more comfortable with each other. We discussed what we should prepare for the upcoming trip carefully and made a decision on our traditional dance performance. After that, we filmed some very funny self-introduction video clips. These clips will definitely bring a lot of laughter to everyone.
Besides, our Japanese friends are coming in the next few weeks, so for the 3rd meeting, something special and unique will be formed by our own hands. We can't wait for this weekend!

Updated information on the AAEE Goat Shelter Project in Nepal.

   I am writing you to update about the AAEE goat shelter project. I am writing this mail with great pleasure and it brings me smile on all of us face that the goat shelter project is continued until now and with much more responsibility. After several unexpected problems, the original owners of the shelter were not able to come and work together for the goat shelter project and this project was almost was in the end. But fortunately a person who literally built the shelter is now taking care of the goats and he is doing very well.
   We kept 14 goats, including mother goat, male goat, and few few months months old goats. Now 3 gave birthe to 3 new goats and the total population of the goat is 17 and the goat shelter owner has kept his 8 goats in the same goat shelter and made  it 25 goats. i had a chance to visit the village recently and had a chance to talk and interact with the owner and he seemed very happy and working very hard to make this project a successful.
   Moreover he has registered this shelter in government office and the government has given facilities regarding the health issues of the goats by providing free veterinary service. In addition he is doing the cattle insurance for all the goats, by which if any goats goats get killed by any disease or natural disaster or any wild animal attack, the insurance will compensate the cost and expenses of that goat.
   He has told me that in this Dashian (Hindu largest festival in Nepal)  7 goats will be sold and surely we can seek few profit, as in this first phase there was lots of expenses and there were small goats bu from 2nd phase they will have a more profit. 
   Please find here with the attached photos and few videos. 

Warm Regrds,

Vietnam - Japan Exchange Program (VJEP) 2016 – ORIENTATION DAY (in HCMC)

After the recruitment, the Vietnamese participants finally have a chance to meet in the Orientation day. We discussed about each other interest and expectations in the program then played small games to break the ice and get to know each other more. Later on, we went through the detail about the trip’s schedule, activities and preparation.
“There are no strangers here; only friends you haven’t yet met” (William Yeats). At first, everyone seems quite shy and quiet but then a few minutes passed, we started to open up and getting closer. We think that we can be friends very soon. 😊😊

The 5th meeting of the VJEP 2016 (Vietnam-Japan Exchange Program)

   The Japanese members of the VJEP held a fifth pre-program yesterday. Three of us made presentations and talked about Vietnam. Through learning basic knowledge and the history of Vietnam, we could deepen our standings much more since we first watched the movie about Vietnam War during the last pre-program. We also chatted together a lot and have become closer and nicer to each other. We'll be in Vietnam approximately in one month! We'd like to discuss more and more, and deepen our knowledge, thoughts, relationship.

The 4th meeting of the VJEP 2016 (Vietnam-Japan Exchange Program

【The 4th meeting of the VJEP 2016 (Vietnam-Japan Exchange Program】
 The Japanese members of the VJEP held a forth pre-program today. From today’s program, we learned a new way of thinking mainly about how to inherit traditional culture and what the international cooperation is.
First, we discussed the idea about the way of inheriting culture. To preserve them, we have to change them as time goes on. It was a chance to see the way of preserving our culture in a new light.
Second, I’d like to mention how we think about the international cooperation. There were some opinions about that. Main opinion is that the reason why some people want to involve the project like volunteer. We discussed a lot, and we found that people who want to do activities like that are interested in them and also they are really curious about them. Of course, still, there are a lot of problems about the international cooperation. For example, if we send products like pencils, business of stationary shop in that country will be crushed. However, we could reach the goal, which is that we should meet the demands and have the goal realistic.
Finally, we watched a movie about Vietnam War. We talked that if we knew about the war more in detail, we could discuss that movie more deeply. Before we go to Vietnam, We’re going to study about Vietnam more.
We are looking forward to having the next pre-program!

Going on an exchange may sound simple but it can be incredibly hard!
For Vietnamese participants, joining an exchange program like VJEP 2016 or any other programs in your own homeland could be less difficult and worrisome. Therefore, before committing to the program, ask yourself these two questions:
 Do you dare to step out of your comfort zone?
Not everyone is brave enough to come out of their shell and make friends with new people. The journey might make you all tired but it could also bring you unexpected experiences. Do you think you are ready for this?
 What can you get from joining an exchange program?
Your commitment and determination are the most critical factors. This summer, instead of going out and participating in self-development activities, you can just sit at home and watch movies from day to night or hanging out with your friends.
Which one sounds more interesting? Hmm, we’ll let you to decide it.

The 2nd joint meeting of the NJEP & VJEP

【The 2nd joint meeting of the NJEP & VJEP 】
The Japanese members of the NJEP 2016 (Nepal-Japan Exchange Program) and the VJEP 2016 (Vietnam-Japan Exchange Program) held a 2nd joint meeting last Sunday!
We got lectured by Mr. Kaito Miwa, who is the representative of e-Education. E- education is a NPO organization which was set up by some university students including Mr. Miwa, who are motivated to tackle with educational problems in developing countries.
Mr. Miwa encouraged us with a lot of impressive words.
First, he emphasized that there are a variety of things we can try because we are young and because we are university students. He taught us that trials and errors is a fundamental method of success.
Second, a leader is not always the one who lead followers, but a leader can be the one who support members behind them.
We can't wait to see and experience many things in Nepal and Vietnam which we can't experience in Japan:)!!
