Founding Story

when we come back to our hometown village, and have a reunion party. we realized that most of we have moving out of the village and left the village just that. no services, no protection from governance. and most of all,many youngster left the village (like we do) and become nothing in the city (some says that they become criminals in town). we love our village and the art culture in it, but we didn't do anything till now. we want to come back to our village and make it a better place to stay and through the local art culture can teach youngster so they can earn money from it rather than move out to the city.
