September 2020 marks 15 years since the beginning of Youth Star Cambodia. It was initiated by Ms Eva Mysliwiec in 2005, who aimed to empower Cambodian youth as volunteers to improve the quality of life in vulnerable communities through education and civic participation.

Fifteen years ago, Eva felt strongly that Cambodia’s young people could be a powerful resource for addressing their country’s most pressing social issues and contribute to the development of the country. Alongside this, Youth Star has become a place to build human resources, capacity and leadership, developing young Cambodians for fulfilling professional careers.

We are deeply grateful to Ms. Eva for all that she has done to build the next generation of Cambodians and her compassion and dedication inform the work we do today.
