"Empowering Khmer Krom Youths Internationally"The Khmers Kampuchea-Krom Federation Youth Committee (KKFYC) is an active committee of the Khmers Kampuchea-Krom Federation (KKF). The committee represents all Khmer Krom youth groups, clubs, and associations internationally that are recognized by the KKF.
KKFYC is an international youth organization created for the sole purpose of developing activities and programs to fulfill the mission of KKF as an indigenous organization representing millions of Khmer Krom people in the Mekong Delta of Vietnam.
The KKFYC works in collaboration with members of the Khmers Kampuchea-Krom Federation to bring international awareness and attention to the issue of the Khmer Krom people.
In particular, it aims to promote the use of international law instruments and United Nations treaties to its people across the world, especially in Kampuchea-Krom, to allow the Khmer Krom people to fully achieve their rights to self-determination which is stated, “All peoples have the right to self-determination…” in the First Article common to the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights.
Its core representatives are recognized youth leaders at their local and international level and are equipped with working knowledge and vast experience within their communities as well as being active participants at human rights sessions in the United Nations.
In true fulfilment of the term, “Tompeng Khnong Reussey”, the Khmer Krom youths are dedicated individuals found across America, Australia, Cambodia, Canada, Europe, Vietnam, and around the world.
They are the forerunners of the Khmers Kampuchea-Krom Federation organization and play a critical role in fundraising, preparing documentation and delivering speeches at international and local conferences.
