IT’S ALL ABOUT EDUCATION…
Funny, education is becoming the golden ticket in Cambodia.
People will lie for it, steal for it, beg for it, pay for it, get scholarships for it,
and rise with the early morning sun to be a part of it.
Education is everything and people are starting to understand that.
With approximately 56% of the population under 18 years old, education is critical
to growing and reviving a country destroyed by the Khmer Rouge.
One of the more calculated moves of the paranoid Khmer Rouge was to kill all the educated,
talented, artistic, gifted, powerful people; bottom line, anyone who could contribute to the
country’s success, or, in other words, anyone who was a threat to the top leaders.
As Aristotle Onassis once said,
“It is during our darkest moments
that we must focus to see the light.”
