Global Youth Project in Cambodia 2019
IAYSP-Japan and IAYSP-Cambodia held the Global Peace Project in Cambodia on August 7 – 21, 2019 with 30 Japanese youth and 25 Cambodian college students joining the program. There were four main activities during this tour: 1) Planting 350 Moringa seedlings in Kampot city for protection of the environment; 2) Visiting some primary schools and conducting hygiene education about how to prevent from diarrhea; 3) Experiencing the culture of One Global Family across the borders through a Japanese culture class; and 4) Learning about the importance of peace from Cambodian history.
Each participant was able to consider valuable lesson in life is through these projects, also through intercultural experiences.
YSP-Japan first started this project in Cambodia in 2018.
“I really understood what One Global Family is all about through the communication with Cambodian students.”
