Cambodian Thanksgiving Day and New Year

  • Cambodia celebrates a new year in its national calendar, an event that marks the beginning of the raining season.
  • The Don Bosco Technical School of Cambodia celebrate the Khmer New Year with the Thanksgiving Day, a moment where students pay respect to their parents and teachers.
  • This year the event was especially dedicated to the Don Bosco 200th birthday and the youth washed his image as a sign of love and gratitude for his fatherly protection. 
 
Kep City & Sihanoukville – Cambodia. The Kingdom of Cambodia celebrates a new year in its Buddhist calendar that will begin on April 16. It marks also the beginning of the rainy season (the monsoon), a natural event that Cambodian farmers wait anxiously in a country where 80% of its population lives from agriculture.  The Don Bosco Technical Schools of Cambodia, deeply rooted in the ancient Cambodian traditions, dedicate time to celebrate with the youth the moments of their culture. On April 10, a day before the Khmer New Year holidays, the Salesians preside the Thanksgiving Day, becoming also a Day of the Community and a Day of the Parents (both dad and mom.)

Happy Eastern from Don Bosco Kep

Dear benefactors,

            The Time of Eastern remembers us the victory of the Cross over death. It is therefore a sign of Hope. It is a sign that means a lot for our 21st century, a time where we face many global problems such as wars, conflicts, climate change, natural disasters and poverty, but also signs of Unity and Solidarity among peoples from different cultures, traditions, languages, races and religions.

Where do you come from, a Radio experience

Kep City – Cambodia & Berlin – Germany – It was the third time that senior expert, teacher and journalist Wolfgang Bauernfeind and radio journalist Michael Ramm came to the Don Bosco Technical School to lead a workshop in media production and reporting with the students of social communication in Kep, Cambodia. A good summary of their first experience was aired in Alex Radio of Berlin in 2013 – here the link for those who can follow German:

Their third experience produced a more elaborated project involving students and teachers of the Don Bosco Kep social communication section – those of Sihanoukville could not attend this year. The radio documentary combines photography and audio and presents the daily life of a Cambodian Salesian center where young people look for a better future. Here the link and it can be followed entire in English, since all the interviewed agreed to speak in that language:

The Don Bosco social communications sections were created in 2007 by Fr. Samnang (Albeiro Rodas) as a project to give skills in media communication and social work to young people from rural areas and vulnerable communities. The purpose is that Cambodian people would be able to report about their own reality using the media and making a contribution to the current Cambodian development, reducing poverty and empowering a culture of participation and democracy. At the moment, some past pupils are involved in Cambodian media such as television, radio, newspapers and digital media of companies. The project has been supported by professional volunteers sharing with the students, but also Cambodian journalists and the same media.
