Social Communication & Journalism
- TV Production
- Digital Journalism
The Don Bosco Social Communication Program was created in 2007 by Fr. Samnang (Albeiro Rodas) in Don Bosco Technical School Sihanoukville. A second school was opened in Kep in 2011. The project teaches skills in Media Communication and Social Work to young people from rural areas and vulnerable communities. The aim 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.
The students learn about camera, edition, script writing, radio, press, filmmaking, news building, social communication theory and ethics.
Foreign journalists and experts have joined the development of the program, especially from countries like Germany, Belgium, Netherlands, France, Spain, Colombia, and The United States. The project has been supported not only by professional volunteers sharing their knowledge with our students, but also by Cambodian journalists.
We now have former alumni involved in the Cambodian media such as television, radio, newspapers, and digital media companies, especially in Kampot, Preah Sihanouk, and Phnom Penh.
