"Everybody has the right to obtain education. I am really sure that everybody, every child in the world has the spirit of learning. I believe that all my friends whose live in the remote area, who have special needs because of their disability, poor family, etc. can study or learn many things. They can learn on their own place and at flexible time, for example, they can study in their garden or after helping their parent's job. They can also learn something while playing, such as children can learn to count by playing traditional toys. Another facility that can reach the unreached people is a moving library. It is a car/mini bus that brings many kinds of book, toys, science kits, etc. This amazing car will really help and reach the unreached people. If they have education properly, their lives will improve."

"I am Goh Wern Sze, a 13 year old student from Malaysia, would like to convey my thoughts to everyone including SEAMEO. Everyone in this would have their own wish. My wish is to travel to overseas to help the adults, children and orphans who are living in remote areas.I am sure that they need education to earn a living. Therefore, I would like to build a spacious house for them to cater their learning.That will be the place where everyone studies. Some of them may be disabled and I will educate them patiently. Others may come from poor families and they are not exposed to technologies, so they have to spend some of their time to learn how to use the computer.Some of them may have to help their parents by working, so they are not wealthy and I will use objects around to teach them how to count. Others may have diseases difficulties and I will educate them with full care and kindness.Last but not least, I hope that each person in the world would contribute and lend a helping hand to those who really need help. Thank you."

The flags signify the different SEA countries that take part to help create a foundation to make their dreams possible.Behind these flags is an organization known as SEAMEO which guides and assists the students to achieve educational competence which is symbolized by the big books. This competence will serve as their tool for them to be globally competent individuals."
