Some of Cambodia’s most respected monks spoke to community members about how to live with respect, peace and dignity, as well as the kindness and grace of parents.

“At the moment there is an increasing number of drug users, alcohol, violence and gangs in the community. It is good opportunity for the people in the community to listen the monk’s advice,” said Hoin, CCF’s Community Outreach Manager.

“It is not about economic or financial presentation but it will focus on keeping people living peacefully, and with dignity and prosperity,” said Hoin.

CCF has a remarkable education and leadership program. However the monks of BEC brought together the power of family and community. That sense of belonging, of responsibility and gratitude to one’s family is such an essential part of the culture here in Cambodia. BEC has a program that brings these essential aspects back into a new light.
