    Host Families for SSEAYP wanted!

    The Nippon Maru will be in Muara Port in Brunei Darussalam from Thursday 6th November to Sunday 9th November 2008 as part of the Ship for Southeast Asian Youth Program (SSEAYP). This may be the last year the Nippon Maru is used for the SSEAYP.

    The Homestay Program of this year's SSEAYP will be held in Brunei from Friday 7th November to Sunday 9th November. The Homestay Matching Ceremony will take place from 10am -12pm at the Indoor Stadium on the 7th November and Host families are required to return the youths back to the Nippon Maru at Muara Port on Sunday 9th November before 12pm. There you will be given the opportunity to take a tour around the ship with your youths. The Farewell Ceremony will also take place at the Port and the ship is scheduled to leave Muara Port by 4pm.

    Bersatu Association has been given the task to organise the Homestay Program this year.

    If you are interested in hosting at least 2 youths (between age 18-30) as part of the Homestay Program this year, we would love to hear from you.

    Becoming a host family includes inviting the youths to stay in your home for the three days and two nights as part of the "homestay". During that time, you will be the youths' "family" and will introduce to the youths to the Bruneian way of life. This is an excellent opportunity for you to learn about each other's cultures.

    The briefing for this year's homestay program will take place at the Indoor Stadium on sunday 2nd November 2008 at 2.30pm.

    For further information please contact Fakhri at 8771978 / or Zul at 8648055/ or Hjh Roha at 8757973 / . For the application form to become a host family for this year, please email the secreatariat at
