After a few twists and turns over the past few months, we are so happy to finally announce that our competition has officially begun! Despite the worsening Covid situation in Cambodia, over this month, we have successfully spread the details and educational message to our scholarship students in their respective schools.
Even though making video is foreign to them, we are glad to see that our teachers are open and ready to challenge themselves to be a beginner in something new!
The roles have been switched! Pokim and Bunsao have now become the teachers to their peers in their Zero-Waste educational video! “I love to speak and make gestures while filming the video and feel that producing such videos is an effective way to educate my community!” beamed Pokim
Teacher Sarith concurred, “Especially in such a time, when meeting face to face is difficult, I believe the videos is a good way to spread information and message.” However, he conceded that the effectiveness of this way of education depend on where others live and what their living situation is like.
Like Teacher Sarith, we are so proud of our students for being brave enough to stand in front of the camera for filming.. First time of doing anything can be scary, yet our teachers and students face their fears straight on and did it! We find them so inspiring!
What is something you did recently that required courage? We would love to know! Our founder Vic has also help produced the Zero Waste educational videos, featuring Pokim and Bunsao, and uploaded it onto our YouTube channel! If you would like to show them some support, head over to give them a thumbs up!
