What is APCC for you ?

The children who had the experience of connecting to the world with a flexible mind through the APCC program have grown into young adults who will lead the future. In addition, APCC is supported not only by children, but also by their families, volunteers, staff, partners, and supporting companies.

APCC has made the entire Asia-pacific a home — wherever I travel, I have a family.
