Live with community 1 (one) night in addressing social issues, youth, the environment, religion, education, etc. will show us the social challenge for youth. The exposure have been carefully selected to bring us closer to the people, their lives, their struggle; to the earth and nature to” hear” their groans amidst the pain and destruction inflicted on them; and to experience the beauty and joy of God’s creation and hope for the future.
This program is an opportunity for people to people dialogue. It can be learning platform into inner issues, the hidden issues impacting the community. In other words, this exposure may taken as an effort to see what has laid open… hence community exposure can be taken to be an effort to see the realities as they are openly laid open for participants to see and experience.
