   On March 26th, there was an introductory ceremony for a project designed to help the homeless and low-income workers living in Seoul. This project was co-hosted by the city of Seoul and Dongguk University (DU). The name of the project is "To Encourage the Hopeless and Homeless through Humanities Courses in the City of Seoul."

   The purpose of this project is to inspire an ethos of self-support to the homeless and low-income communities. Last April, this project was hosted by Kyung-Hee University. DU also participated in this project. For the DU project, a number of classes from the departments of Philosophy, Literature, History, Art, Writing, Practical Business, will be held to debate this topic. Celebrities are also invited to present special lectures. Open registration for these classes is staggered into two parts. The first began on March 30th, and the second will begin in May. The sites for this project are being held in twelve "Self-sufficiency" promotion centers.

   Ahn Soon-bong, a chief official for Seoul's self-support institution, added that "Until recently society would offer the poor only money as a way of helping them acquire the necessities of life. But, from now on, we will help them to recover their self-respect and offer moral support through To Encourage the Hopeless and Homeless through Humanities Courses in the City of Seoul."
