I started as one of SC’s first students. And now, I can give back to SC and my community through my job at SC. My journey to become an SC staff member started back in 2011 to work at the Phnom Penh office. Upon my graduation degree in law, I received a promotion to lead their human and administration department in Pursat. I accepted the offer and moved back to my hometown. After serving in this position for a while, I had the desire to move back to the city so I did. A year ago, I rejoined SC as their Phnom Penh office coordinator. After being in the private sector, I can safely say that there is nowhere like SC – the environment, spirit, team and individuals all combine to give a unique atmosphere that I did not feel in any other workplace. At SC, you are working with your family to make the world a better place.
TC School Manager
In my 10 years with SC, I have had a lot of opportunities to learn and advance. I started as an English teacher at KBFC and was promoted to Program Manager at the TC Swartz School. We provided quality education for children in remote areas by providing teaching materials, hygiene materials, building school toilets, building playgrounds, etc, Working with this position. I got many new experiences in managing, monitoring, and following up on projects. Also, I gained skills in time management, funding management, and reporting to donors. Adding to my core position as the TC School Program Manager, I also manage the university scholarship program that SC provides for the students who passed the 12th grade. In this job, I helped the scholars with their budget requests, correspondences, and reports so that they can fulfill their potential at University.
I have been working with Sustainable Cambodia since August 2014. My first job was as an English teacher where I gained insights and techniques for classroom management and using modern teaching materials. I also learned computer skills and started researching new teaching methods. From this experience, I gained the knowledge to become a school principal. As the principal, I help support and build the teachers to become a strong team. They, in turn, lead students to do the right things and how to lean on themselves when they leave school.
I can say that SC has been a good place for me to build my heart for education to assist my community. One thing I always think about is why do other nations come and help my people? These gifts from their hearts push me to want to do more and more for my students. When students start with SC, I want to see them with the bright futures ahead and become the ones who can support their family and one day, other people around the world. SC has transformed and inspired me to use my love for teaching and education to make Cambodia and the world a better place.
I have been working with Sustainable Cambodia since 2018 as a scholarship assistant. With this position, I improve communication with scholars who are younger than me. They are the age that we need to talk really soft to them. Provide school news to them to complete their Bio update, correspondence, and yearly report. Last but not least, I help scholars who want to change their schools and complete the agreement for their school fees.
From teacher to a scholarship assistant is such a fun job to me. I can understand people who are younger than me. I learn a lot from this job. I appreciate of my job now.
SC has helped me since I was very poor and I want to help poor students to have the opportunity to study and get a good job to support their families. I will spread SC vision to everyone and I hope they come back and help the next generation.
I was working with Sustainable Cambodia in 2009 in KBFC. At that time KBFC got funds from TRIVANI foundation. At that time I was working as a Computer Trainer and to train the students for 6 classes a day. One class for local state school teachers wants to study computers, one class for students outside KBFC, but at that time we need to get co-payment from all the outside KBFC students. And 4 classes for KBFC students.
After 5 years as a computer trainer, in 2013 I applied to get another job as Community Education Project Manager. From there to 2018 I had to control all the communities preschool, communities primary school, and English outreach projects at Kravanh district. A community education project manager is a good job for me and I have always gone to follow up community preschool, primary school, and English outreach projects in very remote villages.
From October 2018 to October 2019 I was an interim at KBFC. This position is really fantastic for me because I learned a lot from it. From 2019 to 2020 I was working as KBFC Assistant working closely with my KBFC manager. From December 2020 to the present I am working as the KBFC program manager.

KSS Project Manager
I began working for SC in June 2012. My first job with SC was a Security guard for almost one year. And then I applied to the Community Education project where I was responsible for the community preschool and English outreach program. I have worked in that position for four years. And then I changed to be an agriculture project officer. For that position, I have worked with the community development team in the rural areas. I was in that position for almost one year. In 2017 I started working in the Kandieng Sustainable School as a project officer. For that role, I had the opportunity to work with teachers who have a lot of experience teaching and spent time working with international volunteers. Today, I am the Kandieng Sustainable School Project Manager responsible for managing the budget, overseeing the building renovation and school environment. I am also responsible for teaching English and the technology/computer lab at KSS.
I really love my current work because I can help poor children. We give them the opportunity to study many subjects at Kandieng Sustainable School. I know of their life because I was one of them not too long ago.
My goal would be to help poor children grow and learn to be better students.
I have been working for Sustainable Cambodia since 2016. I started my first job as a librarian of Sustainable Cambodia and I didn’t have any background or working experience as a librarian at all but I was selected for that position. I was trained by the Sustainable Cambodia education team and international volunteers. Sustainable Cambodia staff were warm welcome and happy to share their education and experiences. In 2017 I was promoted to be an English teacher. That was the most joyful! I do love teaching. Helping small kids from poor families in the rural areas was my dream because I used to be a girl that was raised by Sustainable Cambodia. So that touched my heart. And I am willing to help my students to have a bright future. I was promoted to be a vice principal in 2019. I love working with my partner Mr. Noun San, our SLMS school principal. And my 2022 new year gift was moving to a Sponsorship Manager position. My life is changing for the better! Thank you so much to Sustainable Cambodia that grew me up to be a good resource.
