Getting to Know Cambodia

We believe we have been entrusted with the great task to help this country which has finally emerged from 30 years of civil war and endured the mass genocide of its most educated citizens. But the passion for the task is not driven by the desperation of the people. Despite its horrifying recent past, Cambodia remains a beautiful country; rich in cultural and historical marvels. Here people are hopeful, kind, and eager to learn. It’s those characteristics that make working in Cambodia a pleasure and a privilege.
