A major goal of education is to build a prosperous and harmonious society; however, if each educational institution just continues to focus on only knowledge and technical skills, our society will lose the value of happiness and peace and gradually descend into to chaos. Aristotle said “Educating the mind without educating the heart is not education at all.” Therefore, Dewey International University (DIU) constantly pledges to educate its students to be a whole human beings who are full of competency and generosity. To fulfill the goal of education, DIU has put much effort into seeking other partners which expose the students to more social work. For instance, it was a good opportunity that we had a chance to cooperate with Habitat for Humanity to join the program “Young Leaders Build”. Through this program, our students were very happy and willing to help build houses for local people in Prek Preah Sdach Commune on 19th May 2018.
For sure, this program provided several advantages for our students such as team spirit, unity, and leadership. Even more important is that our locals have received beautiful houses. Faithfully thank all students for all your hard work and time to make this happen. Hope you enjoy and keep involving yourselves in this meaningful program.
