It’s a mind opener. Every other participants, committee members, and volunteers I interacted with made me rethink my point of view on various things. It’s also fun and exciting as we learn and play together. There are so many things I want to share about the programme but in lack of better words: you simply have to experience it!

First, I was glad to join this program, and I cannot thank you enough to committee. This program have many activities, so the 2 weeks were fulfilling. Especially, community service and intern broaden my horizons. I had never been to abroad and I did not know village of other countries. The people there were very kind. Lastly , the most important thing of this program was that I can met many foreign friends! It was stimulating for me.

During DREaM 2015, I got a lot of experiences and knowledge about food security and Indonesia’s culture as well. The DREaM team had made this program excel and be one of the best program that I had ever joined. They gave us a very good hospitality. They also arranged for us a lot of amazing programme and activities related to the food security and Indonesia. I’m glad to meet the DREaM team and the participants. All of you make a lot of memorable moments in my life. I hope that we can meet again someday.

Testimonial from Our Participant in DREaM 2015 Mohammad Harith Afizi bin Azali (Universiti Teknikal Malaysia Melaka)

I just learned about DREaM, this is my first time being invited. But I think it’s important to realize that a lot of different students coming from different cultures learning from each other. Awareness raising I think is the best teaching. They can learn about different cultures and different eating habits maybe. So I think it’s good for social exchange, it’s a good idea.
