Thiên Phước, 17, is a student at Nhan Dao Vocational School in Ho Chi Minh City.
What is the Imagine club of Planète Enfants & Développement in Vietnam, what is it for?
Thanks to my school and PE&D, I joined a group of 24 students, Club Imagine. We will meet for 7 sessions to exchange on different social issues and then we will create a project together for our community. I think this club is important in Vietnam where people are attached to old traditions. It helps us to better understand the origins of certain discriminations, to discuss them and to make sure that we can live together in peace without having to hide.
What are you learning with Club Imagine?
I learn to organize teamwork, group activities, to listen and to debate...we deal with many sensitive subjects in our society such as homosexuality, abortion, being in a couple at school...
Do you think it will be useful in the future?
Of course it is! If you are in this club, you are lucky. The teamwork will help me in my professional life. I will be able to work well with my colleagues. And the debating skills will allow me to discuss with my superiors.
