DPM Men Sam An: Education Sector, a Repository of Knowledge

Education is a repository of knowledge and a great asset indispensable for family and society, said H.E. Ms. Men Sam An, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of National Assembly-Senate Relations and Inspection while presiding over the recent inauguration of the Cambodian Children’s Fund (CCF)’s Neeson Cripps Academy (NCA) in Sangkat Stung Meanchey, Phnom Penh.

“Education is a professional sector necessary for building a sustainable society at present and in the future,” she underlined. “The education field has contributed to maintaining and defending peace, stability, solidarity, hope and to bringing the nation toward prosperity.”

The Cambodian DPM also laid stress on the royal government’s encouragement to NGOs and private sector to continue their partnership with the public sector in promoting the quality of education sector.

On the occasion, H.E. Ms. Men Sam An handed over Prime Minister Samdech Techo Hun Sen’s donation of 20 million Riel (about US$5,000) to CCF.

Located in the heart of Phnom Penh’s garbage dump community, NCA is a world-standard education facility that provides high-quality education to impoverished children in Cambodia through enhanced learning spaces, access to the latest digital technologies, teacher training, a focus on STEM education (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) and designated study spaces all within an environment conducive to critical thinking and gaining an understanding of the world.

Funded by Velcro Companies, the construction of this five-storey landmark building, which began in 2015, cost more than US$3 million.

The CCF, founded in 2004 by former film executive Scott Neeson, transforms Cambodia’s most impoverished kids into tomorrow’s leaders, by delivering education, family support and community development programs into the heart of Cambodia’s most impoverished communities.

According to Mr. Scott Neeson, some 3,000 students have so far enjoyed the CCF’s Education Programme, and 1,000 of them have been reintegrated into their respective families.
