The Brief introduction to ASEAN Youth Friendship Network (AYFN) or organizer

AYFN is an independent organization (we are not under ASEAN) that accommodates ASEAN youth to form friendship network through cultures. AYFN was established on 19 January 2010 in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. AYFN has a point of view “Forming an International Friendship through Cultures”.  It is grounded that good friendship can make the world better and safer. Beside, cross-cultural exchange among youth also can form better understanding among them.

As we know, ASEAN consist of 10 countries member. Each country has its own cultures and makes it different with other. Therefore, ASEAN become a region that is rich in cultures. In addition, culture is something that is interesting to study, and it is a good value. We can form an ASEAN youth friendship through cultures and this is the major purpose of our organization. There are many ASEAN youth can join cultural exchange program to know cultures from other countries in ASEAN. We have a mission that from this cultural exchange, ASEAN youth can strengthen relationships and respect each other.

This organization provides opportunities for ASEAN youth to know others countries by joining cultural exchange program as well, which always held by AYFN. Membership of the organization is open to all ASEAN youth. AYFN also facilitates ASEAN youth to share experiences and discuss something by joining in our online website.
