Cambodians have their own New Year holiday on April 13th which is the biggest holiday of the year, and next week the city of Phnom Penh will be quiet as people head to their families’ villages. Many EYC staff and students will be headed to their ‘homelands’ to welcome in the year of the horse and relax during the hottest month of the year (averaging 94°F / 34°C). As EYC enters its 9th year we can see constant improvements in the maturity of our work and the abilities of our team.  We thank all of our donors who make our life-changing work possible, and assure you that our 620 students get significant benefits each week from our programs. We are happy to show you a great 5 minute video about one student’s life, Ratha: http://eycambodia.org/about/students/ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OxRf7nSKEO0

Humans of Phnom Penh: A Photoblog

A group of EYC students have started an interesting photoblog on Facebook calledHumans of Phnom Penh. It gives an insight into the daily lives of some of the capital’s residents through photography and short interviews and it was inspired by a similar blog, Humans of New York. Each student chooses individuals they meet in the city and who they find interesting to include in the project. Phnom Penh through Cambodian eyes. The blog is in Khmer and in English, take a look: https://www.facebook.com/HoPPCambodia Also, read the story about Humans of Phnom Penh in The Phnom Penh Post. Happy Khmer New Year to everybody and thank you for all your support. Don’t forget April 16th!
