Advancing Media Design Skills in Cambodia with Adobe
At the Steung Meanchey garbage dump in Cambodia, hundreds of children use to scavenge through garbage or beg on the streets to survive. However. since 2004, the Cambodian Children’s Fund (CCF) has provided support through education, leadership, community outreach, healthcare, childcare, and vocational training for around 2,000 children and their families. The garbage dump was closed in 2009 but this community continues to live in extreme poverty. The education program of CCF – the Neeson Cripps Academy – provides a pathway out of the hardship, ensuring that students graduate with a strong sense of social justice and a commitment to making a better future not just for themselves, but for their community and country. CCF staff are skilled and professional teachers and are looking to lead the way in STEAM education.
Building upon Team4Tech’s first project with CCF in 2019, a second T4T team of Adobe employees will virtually support CCF in late summer 2020. The team will be paired with advanced CCF teachers to complete trainer certifications in Adobe CC products. Through this mentorship, CCF teachers will create Khmer materials to train other staff members, students, and the surrounding Cambodian community.
