Project Description

Do you know your local culture? Can you explain it to others? Students research and introduce about their own folks and/or culture to each other. Some local culture is getting to be forgotten by the young generation. The most serious problem is that they can not be proud of it because of a lack of understanding of the value. We need to educate the children on how valuable culture they have is and have them realize they need to leave this culture to posterity.
