Preface

This book is written for the growth and well-being of children and youths, and indirectly, for the current and future welfare of those around them. We pray that they will learn to live happy and fruitful lives, and become the saviours of society.

The chapters follow a developmental process from age 10 to 35. This age group is almost 40% of global population, or 2.5 billion young and vibrant lives. Despite their free time, energy and receptivity, they remain a neglected and under-utilised group world-wide, yet it is in their tender age that morals, values, intelligence and talents are shaped and crystallised.

Hopefully, this will be a candle to the underprivileged in some dark corners of the earth, and a cradle for many, to nurture success. In the years ahead, may this be a guiding light, a constant companion, a source of comfort, encouragement and motivation. If this book reaches a great number of youngsters around the globe - which is our burning wish - its impact will be substantial, and its results, promising and gratifying to us all!
