take certain steps in 2016. First, we must continue to strengthen the capacity of Cambodian youth.

We must train the Cambodian Red Cross Youth to be role models for all Cambodian youth, especially in regards to humanitarian efforts on all levels of society.

Second, we must continue to urge youth ac-tion by creating more opportunities for young people to participate in providing sustainable humanitarian services to national communities. Third, we must strengthen solidarity and cooperation with other youth organizations to better mobilize humanitarian efforts inside and outside the country.
