My thoughts about beloved Cambodia

Strong Youth, Strong Nation!

Youth accounts for more than 60% of the total Cambodian population. Today young people are shaping the future of the country through their various engagements in the society.

The recently established Outstanding Youth Group of Cambodia (OYG-CAM) is an example to prove that. It comprises of dynamic young people who wish to promote friendship and solidarity among all walks of life so that we all can work together for a better society. The following are some of OYG-CAM’s members:

Pichey Ly

Pichey is a junior student at the Royal University of Phnom Penh, majoring in Philosophy. Pichey was recently awarded a title as Collegiate Ambassador for Peace by the Universal Peace Federation.
