Hello, you are the reason I am here.

Portrait of a young man wearing a Facebook t shirt. He's never used it before but has heard about it through the Khmer love songs on the radio.

He'd like to have the resources play around on the internet, go to university, make a bit of money, have a say in his country's future.  Some of the basic stepping stones towards this outcome will hopefully be put in place by the project I'm working on which aims to bring youth closer to a more participatory civic life.   Which means they will be able to change the rules. For the better.

Impassable? I think not.

The road to a remote village at the foot of the Pursat mountain range.  We made it though...

Hello Lady Penh

This is a child of Wat Phnom, Temple hill, where the city's namesake came to pray - Lady Penh.  This is a  boy who came to play with us, in the sun, with a leaf.
