Thanks, Ashley for your nomination!


Asian Youth Ambassadors (AYA) is a non-profit organisation founded in Malaysia for the primary purpose of “inviting, inspiring, instructing and involving young people to dare to dream and be responsible in fulfilling those dreams for the good of all”.
AYA’s main priority is a commitment to raising leaders of admirable standards and excellence, believing that sound and solid leaders determine the overall health (spirit, mind and body) of a whole generation as it does a whole nation.

Started over 12 years ago by Kenneth and Sandra Chin, a lawyer and a company secretary respectively, AYA has been touching over 6,000 youths each year through concerts, conferences, community service initiatives and mass media.

AYA is and has been creatively involved in a variety of things and ways that support its purpose. These include among others: -

Promoting compassion and unity events and other nation building projects;
Producing youth development resource through research;
Organising motivational talks, concerts and conferences;

The AYA Dream Malaysia Awards is about our future - and the people who are farsighted enough to invest in it. Started in year 2005, the Awards is in line with AYA’s objective of building tomorrow’s leaders today and to create a better and brighter future for Malaysia by inspiring, inciting and inculcating responsible attitudes and actions especially – but not exclusively – in the hearts and minds of our youths.

This Awards serves as an encouragement to emerging individuals and responsible institutions to persevere in their dreams of improving the quality of life for themselves and for those around them in spite of the difficulties and obstacles they encounter.

Most Outstanding Youth of the Year
This award seeks to give recognition and to reward young individuals (aged 18 – 33) who have overcome and may still be overcoming obstacles in their lives to be where they are today.
We are looking for ordinary individuals: -

with extraordinary spirit
who have excellent attitude towards life
whose sacrificial contributions have made a real impact among their family and friends.

Youth Friendly Company of the Year
This award seeks to recognise companies that have believed, invested and made the difference in the positive development of youth in Malaysia, giving hope to generations to come.

Would encourage any of my blog readers to share with me any event that you come across. As long as the event/activity/initiative is education/charity/youth oriented and is not-for-profit, I would be more than happy to post it to share!
