Welcome to LIFT issue 45

Last week we tried some new stuff to get our readers involved in Lift and were excited by your response. You answered our news questions and logged on to angkorone.com/lift to share your ideas and opinions.

This week we continue to give you more opportunities to engage with Lift as you read it (so keep a pen nearby) and opportunities to win free stuff when you go beyond the page and reach us online.

We dug deeper to expose the reality of sexual activity among youth and see how global influences are impacting the way we view premarital sex.
