Favorite Links

Below are links to some of my favorite websites.  Please visit them.

Phare Ponleu Selpak Association: http://phareps.org/ .  

Phare is the community Organization that operated the schools I attended from grades 3 to 12, including the Circus and Performing Arts schools where I received my professional training.  Please don’t forget to support its on-going educational and child protection operations that primarily benefit the poorest communities in the Battambang area where I was born and grew up.

 

Phare the Cambodian Circus: http://pharecircus.org/.

The Circus is the main activity of this innovative Social Enterprise.  It was my professional home from the time I graduated High School until I retired in April 2016.  The staff and the artists of the Circus are still family to me.

 

Angkorschildren: http://angkorschildren.com/.

This is the website of the beautiful film made by Lauren Shaw which showcases three emerging artists/future leaders in Cambodia.  I am one of the three subjects in this film.  My contacts and close professional and personal contacts with Lauren Shaw and Paul Feinberg were a major inspiration to me.  Their unfailing support and encouragement are really major reasons why I am now able to study in the United States, realizing my fondest dream. Be sure to visit the website and to purchase either a DVD of the film or a license to see it on Vimeo.

 

Global Arts Corp:  http://globalartscorps.org/home/

GAC is a wonderful and dedicated group of artists who seek to use the transformative power of the theater to bring together people from opposite sides of violent conflict, unrest and war in 17 countries on 4 continents and to facilitate reconciliation workshops.  Cambodia was one of their countries and Phare one of the artistic communities they worked with.  I participated in the creation of the show “See You Yesterday” that has now toured internationally.  Please support GAC so that this show can be brought to audiences in the US.

 

Diving Deep, Going Far: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/diving-deep-going-far-book-women#/

This is the website of a book being prepared for publication by Menno DeBlock. The book showcases the histories of 12 inspiring young women leaders in Cambodia, of which I am proud to be one.  Please support the publication of the book and its distribution to promising young women in Cambodia as a means to inspire and encourage them to assume leadership roles in the social and economic development of Cambodia.
