About Tai Shin Doh





English Translation

“Young people by the virtue of their existence – “here and now” will be part of a human population who will be witness and attestants to wonderful discoveries in their lifetime and they will lead us well into the 21st Century. One question we ought to be asking ourselves at this time is will they be ready!

As the Lyricist wrote in a certain song so poignant and reflecting,

“There is a road which leads to tomorrow and the pathways are to found in the recesses of our mind”

It is what we teach our young people today, helping to shape and form their minds, – helping them to be able to dream, to think and grow, – to take them on many roads, – to many places, – to see and experience a World around them that will ultimately prepare them to accept the challenges and to be able to live in those tomorrow’s”
