About Our Partners

Apart from our educational conferences and summer camps, Youth Ambassadors (YA) provides a platform for participants to give back to the community. We have partnered Westline Education Group Co Ltd to provide quality education and other forms of support to children in Coconut School Cambodia.

This resilient school was founded in January 2013 and aims to equip with a practical skills in English, computer studies and recycling, as well as with a strong value-based education. It is free for students to attend and runs on donations from the day jobs of local volunteers and generous donors.
