Project hosted by: Wando is an island which is about 500km away from Seoul to the south. There is a bridge to mainland for the people to travel to the mainland conveniently by transportation. In addition Wando is famous for its seafood and beautiful landscape. However, there are youth depopulation issues because many of them move to the bigger city nearby for better education. As a result, international exchange and experience is rare to those who stay in the island. Therefore, this project focuses on providing new experience to local youth & children through international volunteers such as diverse cultures and education programs in cooperation with the host organization. The host organization is the local children center which provides social and educational service for children and youth in Wando.
Meeting point: Wando bus terminal / 14:00
