Transparency International Cambodia has been effective at helping women and youth to actively participate in the decisions that affect their lives. That participation has increased young people’s appreciation for the importance of accountability, transparency, and democratic governance. Thank you for your efforts – we will continue to see their positive impact for years to come. I am proud that our assistance helps ensure that Cambodian youth have every opportunity to participate fully in the lives of their societies. Together we are helping them take their rightful position at the forefront of innovation and development.
