We often observe that Cambodians have a culture of empathy and helping each other in times of need. Young Cambodians become role models for the next generation by participating in various social activities. Some participate in outreach programs, join project in order to protect the environment, and participate in fundraising activities to help orphans in rural areas.
What are the benefits of participating in social activities?
These activities help some sectors in the community like widows, elderly, orphans and the sick. Distribution of charitable gifts in the form of food, clothing, medicine; donations of funds; participation in the construction of free housing are some activities that may be beneficial to the society. Participation in social activities provides rich knowledge and experience about daily life. It can also pave the way to continue their studies or pursue a career of profession.
As a social activist, I would like to encourage everyone especially the youth to contribute in this valuable activity which can inspire generous hearts in the community. This can also cultivate the culture of sharing and caring for one another in order to set a good example for the next generation.
