This is an announcement from the Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (The National University of Malaysia).
KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia - The ASEAN Youth Volunteer Programme (AYVP) is a youth community leadership program that aims to create and strengthen the ASEAN identity whilst collaboratively solving challenges faced by local communities.
This year will see AYVP running its 3rd program, on the thematic area of The Environment, in Cambodia from 2 to 29 August 2015.
