“Hyo Jeong Character Education: Youth and Students for Peace” (Cambodia)
Kampong Speu: On June 11, 2018, Youth and Students for Peace (YSP)-Cambodia partnered with the Family Federation for World Peace and Unification (FFWPU)-Cambodia and organized a 1-day seminar on “Hyo Jeong Character Education: Youth and Students for Peace.” There were 640 high school students and they set up clear guidelines for keeping purity as a life goal while preparing to enter university.
Rev. Chamroeun Sophal, the President of the FFWPU-Cambodia introduced the importance of keeping moral integrity as preparation for marriage. Rev. Sophal asked all high school students to make a personal promise, the pure love pledge, to maintain their purity until they are married.
It was an unforgettable experience for those youngsters who were living in the society where the teaching on building a happy family as part of nation-building is not including in the school curriculum. Dr. Tang Kimsruy, Secretary General of YSP-Cambodia, introduced the relationship of keeping purity as an important life goal for the future. He said that “keeping purity and honoring parents are key to achieving true happiness.”
The school principal recognized the importance of Hyo Jeong Character Education and requested YSP and FFWPU to come back and to teach more to the students.
