Cambodia's development as a nation is impeded by entrenched corruption, restricted educational opportunities, large income disparities and meagre job prospects. The majority of youth live in extreme poverty (earning less than USD 2 per day) being victims to exploitative occupations in sweat factories, bonded labour and human trafficking. Access to quality education in rural communities is greatly limited, and most young people are poverty-stricken that they cannot afford to continue studying past primary level. As a result, their status is below consideration for decent employment as they are deemed by employers as under-skilled in both technical and soft skills.
We see an effective transition into adulthood, employment as well as sustainable well-being through interdisciplinary education and hospitality vocational training for youth in the tourist-destination Siem Reap.
