Since 2014, Toshiba International Foundation and ASJA International have been holding an exchange program "Toshiba Youth Club Asia" between ASEAN high school students and Japanese high school students every year. In 2020, due to the influence of COVID-19, we carried out the "TYCA 2020 Web Project", in which we collected status reports and messages for the future from ASEAN and Japanese alumni who have participated in the past 6 TYCA programs and published them on a special website.
In such a difficult situation, in response to our call, students, young business people and young people at heart from 10 ASEAN countries (Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Singapore, Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam) and Japan sent us sincere voices in essays and videos about how they would like to work toward the realization of their dreams and a better world, overcoming each current situation and COVID-19.

We sincerely hope that the sincere messages from these young people will give you insight, courage and hope for your future in the face of the difficult situation of COVID-19.
