Social work

AS a society develops, human resources begin to play a significant role in its improvement.

In the Kingdom of Cambodia, some teenagers discover it’s a challenge to find a job after they graduate from high school or university. The demands of the employment market, and the need for extra skills, cause even more difficulty.

Because of this, some teenagers have decided to create their own teams to work for the good of society and broaden their own experience.

On the other hand, the Cambodian government and some organisations have created programs to help society and offer experience and knowledge to students.

One of our reporters discusses the difference between young people in Indonesia and Cambodia who are involved in comm-unity work. On the subject of  social work, some young people leave their homes in Phnom Penh to serve communities in the provinces in order to gain work experience that could serve as a bridge to their future career.

This week, we also speak to a woman who has been involved in social work since she was in high school. Even after she moved to Phnom Penh to study, she has kept working for society through an organisation.
