About This Project: 
Per KYSD – “Unemployment is the most important issue confronting youth, especially young women, in Cambodia.  Innumberable thousands cannot read, write, or communicate well, and when it comes to job searching, every field is very competitive.  English skills are the absolute key to finding secure placement. The objective of the project posted here is ultimately poverty reduction.

Our young females need to earn money for themselves and their families, and ultimately their future families.  We want to provide a solid opportunity to access English language skills and have a better life.

About This Organization: Khmer Youth and Social Development (KYSD)
Per KYSD – “KYSD is a non-profit Cambodian youth NGO based in Phnom Penh established in January 2000. KYSD has been working with our community for ten years from pre-school age children up to 30. We support communities in the field of youth development (education, health and unemployment), youth participation and rights, and community development (climate change, women’s empowerment and livelihood programs). It is an active youth NGO with growing potential, effective networking, and strong relationships with other local NGOs, international NGOs and the government sector”.
