Cambodian Students' Association in Japan
Cambodian Students' Association in Japan (CSAJ) was founded in 1994 by a group of Cambodian MEXT Scholarship students studying in various universities across Japan. The association was established to provide a platform for Cambodian students in Japan to come together, share their experiences, and support each other. Initially, the CSAJ was a small organization with a limited number of members. However, over the years, it has grown in size and scope, and today it is a thriving community of Cambodian students and graduates in Japan. Today, CSAJ has become an important voice for Cambodian students in Japan, advocating for their interests and concerns. It continues to be an active and dynamic organization, dedicated to promoting friendship and understanding between Japan and Cambodia.
Currently, CSAJ has played an important role in promoting cultural exchange and strengthening the relationship between Japan and Cambodia. The association regularly organizes events and activities that showcase Cambodian culture and tradition, such as Khmer New Year, traditional dance performances, and lectures about Cambodia to Japanese students. In addition to promoting cultural exchange, CSAJ also provides support and assistance to Cambodian students in Japan. The association offers academic and career advice, joint job-hunting seminars with companies, and networking opportunities to its members.
