Distinguished Partner, Colleagues, Members, Guests, Ladies and Gentlemen,
On behalf of the Khmer Youth Association (KYA), I am delighted and honored to welcome all of you for visiting the IDEAS website, our Global partners. I wish first of all to thank you for taking your busy time to be with us. I hope it would provide great consequence knowledge on KYA’s ambitious, activities and results.
As the lead youth organization in Cambodia, KYA desired and committed to show the potential of youth by empowering young people, working with and for youth for positive social change in Cambodia. However, being youth we are learning by doing we are not the expert, I could say.
Khmer Youth Association (KYA) is a humanitarian, non-political party, non-governmental and non-partisan organization working in the area of human resources development, gender, human rights, environment, and democratic development.
KYA was set up because we realized that young people are main factors and important elements in the national and international development and peace. Youth participation is a special mechanism to build a democratic society. Through national and international interest, youths have to try their best to join all activities and show responsibility for their families, communities, nations and indeed the world. The youth voice is a main challenge of political atmosphere and it will support the country to reach prosperity, peace, justice, good governance, democracy, and sustainable development.
KYA was established on November 22, 1992 and was recognized by the United Nations Transitional Authority in Cambodia (UNTAC) on November 30, 1992. Moreover, KYA was recognized by the Ministry of Interior, Cambodia on February 21, 1994.
