Changing Cambodia 2017-2018

 

Second to seconds, day to days, year to years, Cambodia has grown rapidly based on many sectors. On behalf of that numbers of opportunities have been given to me to change my wonderful country. Changing Cambodia is like a film and I am the main character of the film.

 

Moreover, Cambodia was a big part of my life and I was ravenous to change Cambodia by establishing my knowledge to the citizens. Even though I was replenishing into small gaps of issues in Cambodia, I change myself into a better well-known and respected youth leader. I appealed to many theories in Cambodia, and I’ve been leading some activities that lead people to have a better life. I change Cambodia throughout drugs exploration and rabies exploration.

 

There appears to be a multitude amounts of Cambodian are teenagers, some were graduated from school and some still haven’t finished their studies, even though some of them conducted by drugs, and drugs manipulate their lives. Using drugs is a significant topic to discuss because everyone in this country are being threatened by it apprehensively.

 

Many of the drugs users doesn’t know about the impact and issues about it, they just used it in a purpose of having fun and to release stress from learning and family issues.

I was entertained with some irregular events before, but now I am replenishing my brain full of knowledge about drugs after studying about it from the National Authority For Combating Drugs in Cambodia.

 

I understand more about the adverse impact of using drugs and I’m in a position to refute to people who are addicted to drugs to stop using it. As a part of an appointed change agents I consider myself as a proactive change agent who contributes much of my knowledge to many of my nation citizens.

 

We were cooperating with an organization called WorldRenew to work together and raise an awareness due to drugs issues in the community. We worked with eight accumulated students from four different provinces in Cambodia. We worked extremely hard to give a day workshop to the students from the four provinces about drugs uses in Cambodia, and the workshop included games, presentation and at the end of the workshop we handed the prizes for the winning team, and as individual. Beside working for the community I also went to Mondulkiri to confer in a Youth Camp that talk about young leaders in the country.

 

There seems to be abundance of dogs in Cambodia ‒ five million dogs to be exact – and 50% of the dogs carries Rabies Virus ‒ Rabies virus is a zoonotic disease which it could transmit from animal to animal ‒ animal to human. Rabies is a dangerous virus that  no one discovered it is a threatening disease on our lives, dogs and human constitute a close relationship together and some people had dogs as their pets, and pets and owner have a strong contraction together.

Dogs that have rabies behave strange and they usually scare of water and air (wind), and if you were to get bite by a dog that means you’ll have 50% chance to get rabies virus from a dog. Considering rabies virus as a dangerous virus in Cambodia because it killed people more than Dengue and Malaria combined.

 

People don’t give that much attention to themself after they get bitten by a dog because they don’t have enough knowledge to their foundation, but you could identify rabies symptoms a month after you get bite, and these are just the dark side of the virus but you also have the vaccines to prevent it.

 

Alternatively you have to get two vaccinations and one extra just in case anything could happen with many consequences, also the vaccines are available in Pasteur Institute, Phnom Penh, Cambodia.  As a change agent of the nation, we associate with an organization called PPAWS to give free rabies vaccination to the villager’s pets in Mondulkiri. We went to Mondulkiri for three days to give free vaccinations and did some surgeries to cats and dogs there.

 

First we broke up into teams and decided to go to the villagers houses and ask for their pets that need vaccine or need to do surgeries. We received a bunch of pets from their owners and gave free vaccinations and did some surgeries too, on behalf of that there were more pets coming through into the office on the second days, and everyone was working hard with full effort to get this done.

 

Moreover, we also work with Animal Rescue Cambodia (ARC) to give free rabies vaccinations to dogs and cats that lived around our campus. We set up at our place at the two pagodas which were Chompukaek and Kul Tortang pagoda, I was part of the advertisement team so I went out to travel into the villages that close to the pagoda and distribute the information around the community. At the end of the day we got a lot of dogs and cats from the village to get the Rabies vaccinations from us.

Changing Cambodia is not an easy task to accomplish, with a concoction topic to discuss, it takes years to achieve these goals, in order for you to be a significant commission for your country​ you have to do something that will taint in their brain permanently. With these small actions you could change people’s destinations with many circumstances, and this country need more change agents to influence other commissions to transform this place into the world that everyone know. If you appreciate your opportunity to change this country you are creating a big change in this country.  

 

I personally feel extremely excited to change my country by creating activities that people in the communities could participate and work together to engage and find solutions to create change for this country. These are just some concepts that are significant for me to reflect back and bring it up to discuss and next year I hope to foresight myself create a bigger change, and abscond Cambodia to another landscape.

 

Changing Cambodia 2016/2017

 

Along the side of Cambodia’s roads there are houses, trees, rivers, bridges, buildings, stadiums and more. For the next 20 years is what I hope to see houses, trees, bridges, buildings, stadiums and more along the side of Cambodian’s roads. There are many cranes in Phnom Penh. If you take a boat to the middle of the Chaktomuk river you would see at least 20 cranes around you. This is a sign that you would recognize that Cambodia is developing. The view that you see the good side of Cambodia is true. There are a multitude of people that live in rural area in Cambodia. If you put your foot and trod on Cambodia’s land you also see the dark side of Cambodia too. We are protecting our forest from the businessmen that are trying to diminish our forest. This is our issue, if they are trying to diminish we are also trying to replenish it. For the past 45 years Cambodia is moving like a lurched men. Today I am emerging to change Cambodia! Liger Leadership Academy  is providing me a lot of opportunities to change my country. To illuminate the idea of changing Cambodia. I am also one of the 16 million people that are changing Cambodia right now. To prove to you all that I am currently changing Cambodia right now! Below is my evidences to prove that I am changing.

I studied about Marine lives in Cambodia for seven weeks. Which we are working with an organization called Marine Conservation Cambodia (MCC). We studied about the marine creatures that are almost gotten extinct. The most important issue that we have to find the solution is illegal fishing and overfishing. Trawling is a type of illegal fishing, it damaged a multitude of fish also the corals reefs get damaged by it. The more population  doing trawling the more multitude of fish will diminish. Coral Reef is a habitat for all living creatures in the ocean floor. Part of this is that when fisherman wanted to fish shrimp (for an example) he also gets others type of fish as well. What I realize is that the things that he doesn’t  need he will throw it away, as a waste. Overfishing I also one of all mains issues, Vietnamese, Cambodian and Thai people are fishing in the same places together. It’s diminish amount of fish  and destroy its lives. When it is a breeding season there supposed to be not allow for the fishermen to fish in the ocean. It is opposite, fishermen go out to fish every time for their income to support their family. So we went to interview the villagers about it and make a film shows their daily life. We also help to protect the protected area at Koh Seh. We also went snorkeling to see the population and the habitats of a stampede fish.  I also work with MCC to clean up our beach at Kep province. This is one of the best thing that I ever done before in my life. This is also an example for Cambodian to follow and practice throughout the whole country.

When you are talking about Anemia it is a topic that could identify Cambodian. A multitude of places in Cambodia  are Anemic. Iron Deficiency, low red blood cells in your body it could make you feel sick. We are focusing on Cambodian that are having iron deficiency because these type of people are having trouble with their daily life such as learning. Headage, sleepy, pale skin, dizzy and cold hand and feet are the symptoms of iron deficiency. We also work with a company called Lucky Iron fish. Lucky Iron fish is a company that  makes fish from iron to replenish the iron in our body. We did three workshops in Siem Reap to educate people about iron deficiency. Well we also distributed the Lucky Iron fish to the villagers there. We also taught the villagers how to use the Lucky Iron fish. Most of them are likely wanted to have one in their family so we distributed 200 Lucky Iron fish to them. This is one of the main categories that I changed my country by going there to do the experiment.

There are about 72% of organic wastes that have been wasted everyday in Cambodia. Most of the population doesn’t know what they should do with those organic wasted then they end up by throwing it away. I created two compost tumbler to transform the organic waste into compost. We did a seven weeks project that will change Cambodia step by step. The compost will be available for the villagers to buy it. This is a type of business and a solution to reduce waste and to help our environment.

Cambodia is a beautiful country but it need more improvement to develop itself. A lot of Cambodian are looking to see Cambodia in the future. Everyone is waiting with smiling and hope. To keep their dreams come true we, Cambodian, have to accomplish our goals is to change our country. We can be the change agent for our next generation. I still believe in Cambodia in the next ten years that Cambodia will be better than now.

 

Changing Cambodia 2015/2016

I think some problem that we should change Cambodia are the Phnong Indigenous Minority culture and also the economic in Cambodia which is about business, the Cambodian fisheries. I have been asked to some people around Phnom Penh about their business and it is cool, many people had some really cool idea and successful businessman. In this years I have changed Cambodia by studying about the Phnong Indigenous minority. We all created a book that is about Phnong Indigenous minority. Our purpose is to preserve the Phnong minority culture and their livelihood. We want all of the people around the world to know more about the Phnong Minority. Also the are not a lot of Phnong Indigenous group in the world. For the Cambodian fisheries is that my group went to Kep province and interview also did the documentary about Cambodian fisheries and put that video PPYFF (Phnom Penh Youth Film Festival) and we got an award as a best documentary. Also I’ve studied about the Human OF Cambodia in this project my group and I got to go to many different places in Cambodia for interviewing people. The  most common questions that  we asked them were What is the most import time in your life? What make you happy the most? And more so these are some of the questions that we asked them. So this is what I learn and I changed my country because of this education.

Changing Cambodia 2014/2015

                         How I change Cambodia

The problem that had in my village is people burning the rabbish. More people burning the rubbish in the rice field or in front of their house. People burning a lot of rubbishes like that because they use lots or plastic or they do something with it. The people choose to burn the rubbish is not the good choice because it is not good for the environment and people’s health. When people burn in effect to the land because the chemical go into the soil and it destroyed newtrion. When the smock fly up it can make the climate change and it can make a bad ran.

​​​   For one family near my house they burn the rubbish. I talked to them about I learned in Liger and told them about how it effect to the environment around us. Than she said if I don’t burn it so where do I keep that rubbishes. Than I said can dig one hole and put all of your rubbishes in there. My family especially is my brother he burn all of the rubbishes in front of my house to make light. It really bad to make the smock fly up and make the environment bad. My brother didn’t do what I tell him but sometime he not throw the rubbishes away on the ground but he threw it in the bin.

 For now not many people burn their rubbish because they thinks that it is so bad for them. People still using the plastic but they try to decrease the plastics throwing. Sometimes they bought the fish to make the food and they save the plastic for put things. It is really good that they save the plastic so it can’t make the environment around us is bad.

Now people are really good at saving plastic. I saw lots of time is my grandma. When she have the plastics from buy the food she always save the plastics for next time when she need it. I feel really good that she have an idea to save things for next time.
