Youth Group Visiting Japan
Through this program, we lived together without racial discrimination and became so close to each other
(Participant in the Cambodian high school student group visiting Japan)
This program gave me a very precious experience that turned out to be far more extraordinary than what I had expected. By participating in this program, we were able not only to acquire knowledge but also to develop relationships amongst ourselves as Cambodian people as well as between Cambodians and Japanese people.
This program enabled me not only to develop my thinking but also to polish my spirit of appreciation for education, environmental conservation, and my friends.
A memory I will never forget is my home stay with a Japanese family in K city.
We had never met each other before, but through this program, we lived together without racial discrimination and became so close to each other, which was as if we were really parents and child or real siblings.
Finally, in terms of giving Cambodian people an opportunity to understand Japan and maintaining a long-time friendly relation between Cambodia and Japan, I hope that programs like this will continue to be conducted.
