Last month a group of dynamic young students from Prey Lang Debate Forum conducted a field study at the Preah Romkel Community-Based Eco-Tourism site located in Steung Treng Province, one of the four provinces containing the Prey Lang Wildlife Sanctuary.
The teams, made up entirely of young girls, presented their innovative ideas on smartphone applications and technology development to address social issues in Cambodia.
BarCamp - great opportunities for Cambodia’s future generations to take advantage of technology and innovation!
Cambodia is transforming in remarkable ways. The country is at peace after decades of conflict, and a majority of Cambodians are optimistic about the future. However, important challenges remain. Parliamentary elections in 2008 were freer than any held in Cambodia. Yet political power remains unevenly spread, and opposition parties are disorganized, divided and subject to manipulation.
Cambodia has reduced HIV/AIDS infection by half and treated the majority of affected people. Yet maternal mortality remains high, infectious diseases are serious concerns and the health and education systems are underfunded. Each year, 250,000 young people enter the workforce, but not all find jobs. In each of these areas, U.S. assistance makes significant contributions to Cambodia's development.
