Young Life Spoken Here

Young Life's mission in Cambodia:

This nation of nearly 14 million people has endured 30 years of conflict, including the genocide of two million Cambodians, a 10-year occupation by the Vietnamese, and a 13-year civil war. Stability finally came to Cambodia in 1999 and the country is now governed by a constitutional monarchy.
That same year, Young Life’s international director, Bob Reeverts, responded to interest in starting Young Life. Pyneath Sor was hired as area director and began recruiting volunteers and started a computer class at a high school in the capital city of Phnom Penh. Today 580 kids learn computer skills in five classrooms and the number of classrooms in the local schools continues to grow. There are also seven community centers, five in Phnom Penh and two in Battambang. Kids can participate in English language training, tutoring, guitar lessons, plus Young Life club and Bible studies.
This is an outstanding Asia ministry producing a large pipeline of future leadership for ministry and the country, where 95 percent of the population consider themselves to be Buddhist.
