Cambodia is a country in transition; a country with a past both glorious and tragic, and a fragile present. The Khmer Rouge regime of the 1970’s destroyed much, including the Cambodian educational system. That system as it exists today is very limited both in time and scope, and it focuses nearly entirely on memorization and repetition. In response, Writing Through aims to help improve the education and self-esteem of today’s Cambodian students. In addition, it works to augment the limited professional development available to Cambodia’s teachers by giving them new skills and showing them new methods.
