The Ship for Southeast Asian and Japanese Youth Program (SSEAYP) is an annual program organized by the Cabinet Office of Japan in cooperation with the Ministry of Youth and Sports Malaysia and the Alumni Association of SSEAYP International Malaysia (SIM / KABESA). This program brings together more than 300 youths from 10 ASEAN countries and Japan, providing them a memorable opportunity to live together on board the ship; Nippon Maru for 52 days. 28 talented Malaysian youth leaders are selected through various challenging selection phases to represent Malaysia as a contingent and they will be led by a National Leader. This year, the program will commence on 23rd October until 13th December 2018.
The objectives of this program are to promote mutual understanding and nurture friendship among the Participating Youth of the Southeast Asian (ASEAN) countries and Japan. It strengthens their spirit and practical skills for international collaboration, and as a result, cultivates the youths’ capability to exercise their leadership skills in various fields in the globalizing society and to contribute to the society. Series of activities are lined up for the selected participants including discussions on social and youth matters, cultural exchange performance, seminars and on-board activities.
For your information, there are series of Pre-Departure Training and other preparations of the team that fully rely on sponsorship and contribution/ individual cost in order to complete our contingent preparation to be as par as other ASEAN countries and Japan contingent. Therefore, I humbly seek your kind cash contribution in order to assist on my preparation before and during the programme.
As i'm going to represent Malaysia, i humbly ask my fellow Malaysian to help me on this journey. Your donation means a lot to me as it helps to ease my burden, since i'm still a student it's a bit burdening for me to cash out my own money. With the help of you guys, the goal is reachable. No amount is not enough, even you RM1 means a lot to me. It is truly once in a lifetime experience where i can grow better as an individual. This program is not your typical international program, in brief, the selection criterias including intellectual skills, master of general knowledge, public speaking skills and exceptional achievement in extra curricular activities. The pre departure training and life on board itself will help me to become a better version of myself. I'm lucky enough to be selected as one of the delegates representing Malaysia this year. I hope from this donation, more people are aware of this program and will piqued your interest and curiosity to join this program in the upcoming year. Together we create a better quality, intellectual, passionate, socialable and version of ourselves for a better Malaysia. I hope this brief description is enough to open your heart to help me achieve my goals. Thank you
