“iLEAP has raised my capacity as a young leader in my community and country.”
Sitha’s dedication and commitment to peacebuilding and social change has taken her outside of her home country of Cambodia to Myanmar. “My participation in iLEAP has raised my capacity as a young leader in my community and country... It is a space for leaders to come together to act for social change in each of the member countries, as well as the region.” Sitha is a graduate of the iLEAP Southeast Asia Leadership Initiative (SALI), an integrated training and social investment designed to amplify the capacities of the next generation of social leaders in Southeast Asia. Over a five-year period (2013-17), iLEAP is training and partnering with more than 80 social leaders from Southeast Asia. SALI will ensure that young participants have the practical skills, critical perspectives, and a global and regional community of partners needed to sustain and expand their initiatives in rapidly changing Southeast Asia.
