Year Three Changing Cambodia

On the third year of being I do changed Cambodia, here are the changes that I made:

● Think about change (what things did I notice need to be changed in my country; what solutions did I think about, even if I couldn’t DO the solution?)

I think the people shouldn’t throw the rubbish on the road, river/lake, Eco tourism place (our government find a lot of money from that), beach (not a lot) and waterfall (leave the food at the waterfall or in the water, I’ve been experienced). My solution is to create a lot of rubbish bin in Cambodia, especially the place that I had wrote, then we can advertise it on the TV, radio, Newspaper and write poster to post it on Social media (Facebook), stick on school wall/building about how important to humans to throw the rubbish in the bin, to encourage them to put the rubbish in the bin.

I think Cambodian should start to use more solar energy and recycle charcoal (link to recycle charcoal) because they can save their money (they are cheaper) and take that money to work on other things such let their children go to school (in they’re not yet), take it to buy materials to put in there house or other things that they need.

Teachers in government school should focus on teaching students a bit more (don’t think about money too much), give the student more chances to share their idea, don’t use violence too much (only use if necessary), don’t sell the test paper to the students and encourage students to try hard more, at least this is what my old school is like.

Older kids shouldn’t fight the smaller one, even though they did something wrong a little bit because they’re younger than you, should not ask them for money and if the smaller one don’t give don’t fight them, again at least this happened at my old school.

● Raise awareness about necessary change (did I talk to others and share my ideas about what needs to be changed; possible solutions? did I talk about that with people? with friends? family?)

I have talked to my friend (Mengthong) about the rubbish just like what I have mentioned. I also talked to the students in my old school that was grade six to not fight the younger kids, don’t go to Internet to play games while they supposed to go to school and take the money that their parents give to school to put in the game (like AK).

Most of my holiday when I saw members of family, my friends, student in government school or people that come to buy something from my aunt stall and they throw the rubbish away or not in the bin I told them to pick it up and put in the bin, sometimes it worked and some not.

● Try to promote and encourage change (did I do my best to teach others/show others/be an example and model of change? did I try to educate others about change? ex: Sharations, trips, networking)

In Liger Tech Support I went to Green Umbrella (an organization in Takeo province)and taught the kids English and played some game with them. Another one was Tiny Toones (Tiny Toones site) and I also taught the students at there English and fixed their computers.

In Poverty exploration when we were on a trip to Kampong Chhnang province, we taught some of the kid and adult about ankle sprinkle and also the exploration.

● Actually create change in Cambodia this year

The actual change that I create was the Cambodia Animal Guide book.

Algebra A Description

Name of Course: Algebra A

Learning Facilitator: Jeff Boucher

Number of Students: 14

Dates: August 12 – January 16

Days we Meet: Monday – Tuesday


Course Description: In our Advanced Enrichment we learned about Math. This Advanced Enrichment lasted really long and the students had a really hard time working on that. We learned the hard math by learning it step by step. There are many clever students in this class and all of them are very patient. Every day in our class the math got harder and harder but we got smarter as the time kept going. Sometimes we realized that the math that we had learned could be used in real life. The important things that we learned for the whole year were negative numbers, the Greatest Common Factors, linear equations, y=mx+b form or Slope-interception, parabolas, Quadratic formula/equation, etc. All of these math sections were very hard. It is something that people will think that it is hard because they did not try yet and for those people who try they will think it is easy. But for us here we do not think it was hard or easy we were just trying our best.
