YSP Inauguration in Philippines
One of the highlights of the 5th International Youth Assembly (IYA) was the inauguration of the Youth and Student for Peace (YSP) Pilipinas. It was launched last February 23, 2017 in South Korea and it will become the umbrella organization of all the established organizations for the youth and students. YSP will form a strong alliance of righteous and filial young people to realize peace and transform the world. YSP is now advancing from Korea to other countries like Japan, Thailand and this time, in the Philippines. Mr. Ryan Tupas, President of YFWP delivered the Opening Remarks which was followed by a Welcome Address from Hon. Faustino G. Dy III, Governor of Isabela Province, through Board Member Hon. Abbie Sable. A video presentation was presented as an introduction of YSP-Pilipinas. Then, the resolution crafted by the IYA delegates was read and presented supporting the advocacy of YSP in the Philippines. This was followed by the signing of the resolution by representative leaders.
The program was rightfully concluded with resounding cheers. Onwards YSP and until next IYA!
