The Royalty Dividend of the Youth Hope Fund





The university student network group Nexters visited the Work Together(WT) Foundation and donated a portion of the royalties from the book “The Beautiful Lie” (Written by Nexters, Published by Book Nomad) last March 13th (Fri).
 

The executive director of WT foundation, AHN, Jae Woong, the representative of Nexters, SA, Ji Yeon (25, the department of consumer science, Seoul National University) and the writer of “The Beautiful Lie,” PARK, Yoon Joong (25, the department of sociology, Yonsei University) participated in the donation ceremony.

Mr. PARK clarified that “500,000 won from the royalties of The Beautiful Lie’ will be donated to theYouth Hope Fund” and that he “hoped for the creation of more opportunities for youths to find new hopes in this difficult time of youth unemployment.” 

  Nexters visited social enterprises in India and Bangladesh last August, 2007 as a part of “The World-Wide Hopeful Economic Study Tour Project” operated by the WT foundation and wrote “The Beautiful Lie” based on their experiences. The first prints of “The Beautiful Lie,” which was published at the end of last December, sold out in two months and the second prints are in the press now. 



 

The study tour of social enterprises in India and Bangladesh by the university students network group ‘Nexters’ as a part of ‘The World-Wide Hopeful Economic Study Tour Project’ operated by the WT foundation in 2007 resulted in a book named of “The Beautiful Lie” (Published by Book Nomad). This book, published in December of 2008, is an alternative travel book outlining our experiences with social enterprises in India and Bangladesh. We visited social enterprises and met social entrepreneurs who combine the pursuit of profit with social values like eliminating poverty, protecting the environment, and gender equality. With this book, we hope to re-illuminate the hidden social enterprises in India and Bangladesh and show how they’re viewed through eyes of youths.
