Generally, young people in this IT age are ‘logged’ into the virtual world most of the time, so much so that they are unaware of the happenings in the real world. In order to encourage these young people to go into nature and the real world, the Organizing Committee of Tzu Chi Teenagers’ Group, Seremban, led their teenagers on a visit to a drug rehabilitation centre on September 9, 2014.

A three-day Tzu Chi Teenagers’ Group Parent-Child Bonding Humanities Camp was jointly organized by Taiwan and KL & Selangor Tzu Chi Collegiate Youth and the Education Team, from August 1-3, 2014, at KL Tzu-Chi Jing Si Hall. It is hoped that through accompanying and caring for each other, mutual trust and understanding could be established.

Forgetfulness, clumsiness and slowness in learning are part and parcel of growing old. To the children, old age is so distant, and as such, they may not be able to feel for the elders. So, how do we teach the children to appreciate, respect and love the elderly?

“The white ones are for training exercises.”
“Now, can anyone tell me what colour are the planes for transportation?”
