With the Covid-19 situation in Siem Reap worsening, our new initiative “Zero Waste” Competition isn’t proceeding as smooth as we would like to see. Teacher Sarith, who is mentoring the working group reported, “Due to the many cases of Covid-19 even in rural villages, we are having difficulties to get in touch with our students. Only a couple of our partner schools could contact the students who have smart devices and to explain about the competition.”
Who would have thought that this is the first time Pokim and Bunsao producing educational videos? Working with Zeleen remotely, the team has produced some informative and interesting flipboards which became the centre of teaching materials. Seeing them talking about the environmental issues in Cambodia in front of the camera is just mind-blowing and inspiring!
We are hoping that as the competition gains traction again, we will be able to spread the word and invite interesting creations from teachers, students and their families. Can’t wait to watch the completed educational video and make them available for our scholarship students.
