If we think about our conditions and our childhood life suffer in ten-year back.
Today the achievement of Tong-Len and our lives changes are unbelievable and incredible. While we were in street as begger and rag picker with tattered clothes and torn shoes, filth and slime, unrefined speech and uncouth manner.
People also hurried by covering their noses and place to cast the unwanted and filthy. The rubbish dump was source of some of us life livelihood. Our three meals are unsure, our only hope is to stay warm and fill stomach for today. Learning and knowledge and high-class living are far fetched our dreams. Aspiration, ambition are terminology beyond reach. Tomorrow was uncertain.
These are our companions in our lives.
Now we have hope and potential to reach our dreams to have better life and strong desire to serve in community in order to reduce inequality and make better society. It is also unbelievable that such as a young girl interviewing to high profile proffersor and talking about the betterment of world in future through holistic education.
Thank you Tong-Len for making a beautiful and potential life.
