Cambodia highlights

In our organisation, Cambodia has almost become synonymous with Community[e]Education. Since the start of 2012 we successfully trained a number of groups on how to become a facilitator in topics concerning among other things communication and decision making, a healthy body and safe sex. We started with two groups of 25 teachers who in turn trained 500 students. This year, we have expanded our target group from teachers in the rural areas to youth group leaders and university students in the city. This gives us the opportunity see how the programme works with other groups as well.

In addition to three Closing Workshops, we also had one more Kick-Off training at a new location; Sisophon. Here, we had a student from the previous group as a guest-speaker during one of the sessions for the new participants. Although she started out a bit nervous, her being a university student versus a group of professional teachers, after five minutes she really got into the material and pleasantly interacted with the participants which resulted in a very successful day! This was without doubt one of the big highlights of the trip, for it really shows not only the overall willingness to learn and apply this knowledge in practise, but it especially demonstrates the sustainability of the programme.
