KYA helps Cambodians to be key agents of change

IN CAMBODIA, AFTER THE CIVIL WAR, YOUNG PEOPLE STARTED SHOWING A LOT OF POTENTIAL BY MOVING THE COUNTRY FORWARD. THIS IS WHAT LED TO THE FOUNDATION OF KHMER YOUTH ASSOCIATION (KYA), AN ORGANIZATION THAT HAS BEEN WORKING SINCE 1992 TO PROMOTE AND ENCOURAGE YOUNG CAMBODIANS PARTICIPATION IN DEMOCRATIC AND DEVELOPMENT PROCESSES IN ORDER TO FIGHT CORRUPTION AND MAINTAIN SUSTAINABLE PEACE.

“WE ARE COMMITTED TO WORKING WITH AND FOR YOUTH FOR POSITIVE SOCIAL CHANGE BY EMPOWERING YOUNG PEOPLE TO UTILIZE PRINCIPLES AND ROLES IN DEMOCRATIC SOCIETY – BE ACTIVE CITIZEN”, SAYS TAN KIM HENG, PRESIDENT OF KYA.

FOR THE PAST DECADES, KYA EMPOWERED YOUNG PEOPLE AT THE LEVEL OF DECISION-MAKING AT BOTH NATIONAL AND SUB-NATIONAL THROUGH THE PROJECTS OF ADVOCACY, ACCOUNTABLE GOVERNANCE, ETC. ALSO PROMOTED HEALTH ISSUE THROUGH THE PROJECT OF SEXUAL REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH AND RIGHTS (SRHR) AND WASH ISSUE (WATER, SANITATION AND HYGIENE PROJECT, ETC. AND FINALLY STIMULATED LEADERSHIP AMONG YOUNG WOMEN TO BE YOUNG LEADER AT THE GRASSROOT THROUGH THE PROJECT OF WOMEN EMPOWERMENT, YOUNG WOMEN ROLE MODEL, ETC.

AS TAN KIM HENG EXPLAINS, “CURRENTLY KYA HAS EIGHT SUB-OFFICES ALONG CAMBODIA WORKING ON THE ISSUES OF CLIMATE CHANGE, SRHR, WASH, EDUCATION, VOCATIONAL SKILL, MIGRATION, ALCOHOL AND DRUG PREVENTION, BY WHICH THERE ARE AT LEAST 200,473 YOUNG PEOPLE ALONG CAMBODIA GETTING BENEFITS FROM THE PROJECT”.

KYA AND WORLD LIFE EXPERIENCE
ACCORDINGLY TO KYA´S PRESIDENT, THE PARTNERSHIP WITH WORLD LIFE EXPERIENCE MAKE SENSE BECAUSE BOTH ORGANIZATIONS SHARE THE SAME PURPOSE OF RAISING SOCIAL AWARENESS FOR SOCIAL CAUSES. “IN PARTICULAR, OUR YOUNG PEOPLE AT LOCAL COMMUNITY CAN LEARN SOMETHING MORE IN TERMS OF KNOWLEDGE, SKILL, EXPERIENCE, AND CULTURE FROM THE 12 PARTICIPANTS IN THE PROGRAM. ALSO, KYA WOULD LIKE TO ENGAGE EXPATRIATE PARTICIPATION TO EXPLORE WHAT OUR COMMUNITY YOUTH NETWORK HAS BEEN DOING TO GET MORE IDEAS WHICH YOUTHS CAN ENHANCE PERSPECTIVE FOR THEIR WORK”, ENLIGHTENS TAN KIM HENG.

“THE PROJECT IS TREMENDOUSLY A BRIDGE FOR PARTICIPANT TO EXPLORE REALITY IN THE WORLD BOTH OF DEVELOPED AND IN DEVELOPING COUNTRIES. MORE OR LESS, THEY CAN BE A PART OF DEVELOPMENT CONTRIBUTION TO WHERE THEY VISIT IN PARTICULAR CIVIL SOCIETY IN VARIOUS THEMATIC AREAS WHICH INSPIRE THEM TO BE MASSAGERS FOR WORLDWIDE PROSPERITY”, SHE ADDS.
