Thanks for that infor about Bali Youth Force and GYCA, I know that aren't
you using GYCA Asia Pacific group mail to send this? Bali Youth Force was
just formed for the 9th ICCAP congress and from than on you and your group
will try to work within the region.
I sent this email on GYCA's Asia Pacific email list on takingitglobal, so
friend that's for the update but I am afraid I have sent to the right email
list. so if you feel offended I am sorry about that.
