We will soon announce a travel grant for regional humanist youth activists. The travel grant is open to active volunteers from IHEYO Asian member organzations, as well as active youth Humanists from Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam.

Humanism in Asia

Humanist education and life stance are needed in our continent. Our education system and socio-economic-political situation discourages us to think for ourselves, be critical and empowered. We need to encourage our youths to think critically and scientifically.
