To build a culture of peace, we need to build a culture of hope and trust among people. It takes time to build human values, trust, and healthy relationships among people across Cambodia. Step by step is the walk for peace. Youth for Peace starts peace from the individual – to help them build more confidence and critical thinking, with which they can go on to the second step; taking an active role in developing their communities.
Youth for Peace is a place where youth can learn and share experience with each other, and develop skills for active citizenship. For more than seven years, Youth for Peace has prepared young people to take responsibility for their society. They have gained the knowledge and skills needed to affirm human values in their lives, families, and communities.
Through the Youth for Peace program, future leaders expand their minds, skills and friendship. With trust, cooperation and enthusiasm, they build strong teams and solidarity among youth that cross barriers of mistrust, ethnicity, gender and religion. The training environment is filled with pleasure, laughter, creativity, appreciation of each other, and provides a safe space for youth to express themselves.
We are very grateful for the support that we get from many people and organizations that make our work possible. We always welcome support offered in any way. If you are youth, please feel free to visit us and join our activities at any time.
