A BRUNEIAN was awarded the Ship for Southeast Asian and Japanese Youth Programme (SSEAYP) International Award together with several others for their contributions to the programme.

The awarding ceremony was held recently in Siem Reap, Cambodia.

Mosli Hj Abdul Hadis, deputy president II (National) of BERSATU Association Alumni of SSEAYP International Brunei, received the award for his valuable contribution to the cause of SSEAYP International.

Mosli joined the SSEAYP in 1987 when he was 25 years old. In 2012, he was appointed to lead a group of 28 Bruneians as young ambassadors for the 39th SSEAYP envoys. He has been actively contributing to the society and the alumni association.

“SSEAYP International Award scheme aims to encourage and appreciate the alumni members, respective people and organisations for their voluntary spirits and contributions to the society,” said the statement, adding that it is also to advocate to other members how they can contribute to their society and the future.

On hand to present the award to the recipients was Cambodia’s Secretary of State of the Ministry of Education, Youth, and Sport Dr Sean Borath, said BERSATU Association of Brunei Darussalam yesterday.

The annual event is hosted by SSEAYP International Alumni Cambodia, which was held for four days from April 29 to May 2.

According to the statement, the award is given once every three years.

Under this year’s theme of “SSEAYP Cooperation for a Greener World”, the former participating youths of SSEAYP took the opportunity to reunite and explore the land of ancient temples in Cambodia.

SIGA, which is annually organised by SSEAYP International (SI) and hosted by an alumni association on a rotational basis, among other aims to create the opportunity for the reunion of former participants and host families to promote lasting friendship, understanding and goodwill among the people of ASEAN and Japan; to help in the development of exchanging information on activities of respective Alumni Association; and support local community in promoting youth activities and social services at both international and local levels. A group of 19 Bruneians comprising former Brunei SSEAYP participants, host families and parents attended this annual event in Siem Reap. The delegates were led by Mosli.
