In May 2017, Youth Star Cambodia Program Officer Ms. Kao Sokunphrady and Communication Officer Ms. Heng Yen had the honor of representing Cambodian Youth NGOs at the seventh UNESCO NGO Forum. The event was organized in partnership with the MiSK Foundation and based on the theme “Youth and their Social Impact.”

The forum took place May 3rd – 4th in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, comprising over 2,000 registered delegates from 400 NGOs and representing more than 70 countries. The event provided a platform for Youth Star to share our insights on youth empowerment and contribute to strategies for community bridging and development. The shared belief in the power of volunteerism and youth has opened Youth Star to a global network of likeminded colleagues.
