Peace & Better Justice in Cambodia: Destination Justice & Youth for Peace sign MoU

Youth for Peace is a Cambodian NGO that offers education in peace, leadership, conflict resolution, and reconciliation to Cambodian’s Youth. Destination Justice and Youth for Peace (YFP) have been in contact since the end of 2013 and started to explore opportunities to work together.
