Phary Moeun is the amazing and tough founder and director of Khmer for Khmer organization (KKO). Over the last four years, she has run a very successful private Language and IT skills school as well as a kindergarten. During this time, she met many students who were eager to learn but whose families unfortunately couldn’t pay the school fees. From this starting point she was inspired to start a school that provided free education and vocational training to students who otherwise couldn`t have had the opportunity to access education. This means that these students get the chance to receive a good educational grounding, which hopefully helps them to find a qualified job in future and gives them the opportunity to escape from the vicious circle of poverty. Beyond that, Phary wants to show and give the students the very important feeling that they can be useful in the commune and society.
Besides the social aspect of KKO, Phary likes managing and organizing things by learning by doing as this way one continues to build one`s knowledge. Phary is a well-read and knowledgeable person who likes to pass on and share knowledge, culture and life experience with the staff, the students and with people from all over the world as well as exchange ideas.
To secure KKO`s future, Phary wants to work on achieving financial independence in order to guarantee lasting work and development. In addition, she has put her heart and soul into providing even fairer wages for the engaged staff. She wants them to be able to support and care for their families and have enough reserves to finance their studies so that they, too, have a good grounding for their future.
Cooking and playing sports - such as swimming, cycling and dancing – are the ways that KKO`s power woman takes time out to breathe. Phary`s very personal dream is that her own two children achieve their goals and dreams and that they have the opportunity to study abroad. She hopes they can bring the knowledge they gain abroad back to Cambodia to support their home country.
