Dear Bong Kol and all friends,
I am writing to say thank you for yesterday’s event that you, Bong Kol, Thong and all youth friends are trying hard to shape up such a great image. I strongly support Outstanding Youth Group (OYG) activities. I do believe that if all of us committed hard and make a firm solidarity to distribute and contribute all what we can to the group, it will definitely run towards its achievement and goals.
More importantly, thanks so much to my former instructor, Kol who initiated the idea to make this event not only for entertainment, but also wonderful venue for building up strong relationship among youth and enabled the youth to share ideas and their knowledge, experiences, and to know much better how we can keep communication with the youth, what the priorities issues are the youth concerns about, and where youth in Cambodia is residing in. This activity is the great start of building network so I hope OYG team coordinator, communication facilitator and all members will strongly cooperate to further continue our missions.
Sorry I know just some of our friends’ email among YLC2, but I believe Thong and Muy will keep good communication with our group members.
Happy Up Coming Khmer New Year and Have a Nice Day,
Dear Sopheaktra et all friends of the Outstanding Youth Group:
Peaktra – thanks for your very good note about the youth picnic and once again I thank everyone for their genuine participation in all the activities, especially the group discussion about youth in Cambodia. I must say that the result from that group discussion that you involved is very valuable for me and for others whom I will speak to about future youth project in Cambodia.
Let me repeat what has been and will always be my personal commitment for the youth in Cambodia. “I will do everything I can for the benefit of youth who will be the leaders of our lovely nation. In fact we need to do some homework from now to become very good leaders because we all have good opportunity to do homework and preparation to become good leaders since our country is now at peace and stability, unlike our parents and grant-parents who had been through too much troubles and difficulties in the Cambodian history. So we all should take advantage and this opportunity to be helpful citizens for a better future of us and of our children. Please believe me that WE ALL CAN HELP MAKE CAMBODIA A BETTER COUNTRY AND WE ARE RESPONSIBLE AND ACCOUNTABLE FOR THE FUTURE OF THIS BEAUTIFUL NATION. HOPE IS A CHOICE AND WE ALL CHOOSE TO HOPE!
Back to the OYG, it is a starting point of unity and solidarity among dynamic, talent, smart and outstanding young people like all of you. It is for fun, networking, friendship, forum for learning from each others and for helping one another when needed.
If you agree we can do beyond that, for example setting up a OYG Club of Learning, which here I can help invite some experience people from the NGOs and Civil Society Organization to share their experience on different aspects such as: on leadership, governance, human rights and democracy, social accountability, community development, practical research tools, human management, etc which you might have not learned from schools or universities.
At my personal level, I can also share a lot of my experience working with different international and national organizations on different issues over the past 15 years. I believe you will learn very good knowledge from this as well which will be very useful for your personal knowledge and career. Strong Youth Strong Society! I guess we can discuss this idea more later during our next OYG picnic which by then we should also be able to come up with vision, mission and objectives as well as goal for the OYG.
Let me put down my suggestion for everyone to do at your convenient:
1) I am thinking of developing a BLOG (website) for the OYG to begin our visibility. So I request everyone who has collected good photos/pictures from the recent picnics or our previous events together to please share with me a copy. So soft copies through disk or USB will be best so I can use some of them for the BLOG.
2) Keep sharing information and communicating with each others (sharing your idea or any news) when your time allows so that everyone is updated and up-to-date of the OYG. Here I particularly would like to request A Muoy and Thong to have a group e-mail list of all the friends.
3) Invite good friends who you think should join the OYG and add their names and contact addresses (e-mails and phone numbers) to the list so that we can contact them as needed. If each of us can invite ten friends, this mean we will have about two hundred friends more who will be on board with the OYG during our next picnic. I strongly believe if you work together we can make it.
Thong and A Muoy – can you please help forward this e-mail to all the friends. I do not see many people in this e-mail address of recipients.
Last but note least, I am really proud of you all. You are such a great group of people that I have been lucky to get to know and now to work with. Let’s be OUTSTANDING forever.
Stay in touch and keep up your good work.
Love and Peace
