Voice of AYF
We are the Voice of AYF and are now proud to present the result of our work with this Online Media Platform. Our core mission has always been to take advantage of the ideal framework that is Awaji Youth Federation and to promote its activities so that it may become a meaningful and recognized global association. By so doing, we hope to have a positive impact not only on AYF but also on Awaji Island by drawing even more interest towards them. In this manner, one might consider our endeavors as a bridge between Awaji Island and the rest of the world, similar to how the heavenly bridge of Ame-no-ukihashi once linked Awaji Island to the heavenly gods. To achieve this goal our team developed strategies to promote the AYF both online and offline by focusing on three main pillars:
– Online promotion
– Networking with international organizations
– Creating a strong alumni networks between AYF generations
Throughout the year, the AYF fellows have comprised several teams to design and lead innovative projects that could be instrumental to shaping the next generation. AYF now continues to tackle issues related to various industries such as food, agriculture, and education, among others. The VOA Online Platform is a testimony and overview of the hard work carried out this year by each of the AYF fellows, spent countless hours in seeing their efforts through, who did not give up amidst difficulties, who remained passionate and wanted to make the most of the opportunities given to them. It is a display of what youth from 19 countries can achieve together given the right tools and environment.
We would like to thank everyone involved in the production of our Platform as it is not only the result of our efforts but also that of every project as well as its supporters. By making it a reality, we believe that we can take another step forward in allowing Awaji Youth Federation to reach its full potential.
