From VOA Learning English, this is the Education Report.
Cambodia has about 3,000 recognized nonprofit groups. Some work on issues such as violence against women and human trafficking. But few Cambodians are trained for such work. That is now changing with the country’s first university-level degree program for social workers. Yoeung Kimheng grew up near the city of Phnom Penh. He saw troubling social problems, but few people were in a position to help. Now, he himself will be equipped to help. He has finished a four-year program in the Department of Social Work at the Royal University of Phnom Penh. His class is to graduate later this year. It will be the second graduating class. Twenty-three-year-old Heng Puthika was part of the first graduating class of social workers. Now, he has found a job with a nongovernmental group that works with victims of human trafficking. The university started the department in 2008. Until then, there was no college program in Cambodia for training social workers. Cambodian groups depended on foreign experts or largely untrained local people who learned on the job. The Department of Social Work at the Royal University of Phnom Penh has a partnership with the School of Social Work at the University of Washington in Seattle. Through that link, Ung Kimkanika and other Cambodian students went to the United States to study and earn master’s degrees. Now, they have returned and are teaching others. The social work program will likely become even more important in the coming months. Ung Kimkanika says a decision expected from a war crimes court could bring back bad memories among survivors of the communist Khmer Rouge who once ruled Cambodia.
