KCEO publishes new video, “A Look into the Khmer Children’s Education Association”

We are very happy to include a new video focusing on the school and, furthermore, hope that the poignancy of its voice and production may be well-communicated in illuminating the sense of basic necessity that we know to be present there.

This video was created in Cambodia by, and thus paints a picture of, the KCEO children’s school: its educators, the students who depend on them, their friends and community members. The subtitles were provided by Cambodian English-learners, in association with World Vision International. It represents a unique opportunity to see what grass-roots educational efforts look like in rural, economically disadvantaged villages in Cambodia.

The KCEO represents a unique undertaking started by one man, Him Marin, and his family, to bring education to their local youth communities, of which many students do not have the option to attend primary school. Some do so as a supplement. It is a pay-what-you-can-afford organization, with many young students thus paying nothing at all. The friends of KCEO comprised of students, faculty, friends and alumni at Marlboro College are doing our best to make their voices, and requests for help, heard.

Here on the website, you’ll find many more resources from which to learn about the cause, its challenges, and how you can become involved in the school’s effort to make the global accessibility of education a reality, beginning with commitment to hope and positive change at the community level.
