Youth all over the world are saying “Enough is enough!” and taking action on serious social issues affecting them, their friends, and families. Cambodian youth are no different. Young people here are agents of change, bringing awareness to community problems and exploring ways to address them.
World Renew and its local partners in Cambodia have facilitated the creation of 23 youth groups in four provinces. In late fall 2017, World Renew organized a camp in Phnom Penh for over forty youth from these clubs. The students were given the task of identifying the number one issue facing youth in their communities. They agreed that the growing use of and addiction to drugs was the most severe threat facing their communities.
