A Life-changing Week: South Korea's Don't Worry Village

South Korea is known for the intense competitive stress placed on young residents of cities, leading to suicide rates that increase yearly. To counteract this problem, an educational program known as "Don't Worry Village" was founded in the southern port city of Mokpo. It gives emotionally fatigued young people new courage and a chance for self-reflection, encouraging a fresh start in their lives. It has also helped the local community, which is affected by an aging and decreasing population.
