In Cambodia, young people aged 15-30 make up roughly 30% of Cambodia’s population. Youth are an important resource for Cambodia’s economic, social, cultural and environmental development. However, Cambodian youth are often excluded by decision makers, to the detriment of youth themselves and future generations. They also associate power with high ranking people and positions and feel a lack of recognition caused by an age and knowledge hierarchy. To mediate these issues, JWOC will be giving our students an opportunity to be change-makers.
Under the guidance of JWOC staff, our Year 2 Scholarship students will receive training on the project cycle and design their own community projects. Year 3 students will provide mentorship to High School students, and Year 4 students will make project proposals to JWOC to carry out their own projects in Siem Reap or their home community. This will allow them to build the necessary skills to lead in the development of their community after graduation.
