Our former Live-in boy, LUY Bonthou, used to live in a pagoda with his close friend before asking to live at NFC in 2003.

We wish you a brighter future in your new career, Bonthou.

NFC Student Cheat Hun, see in the photo, is one of the eight students being trained as a clinician at All Ears Cambodia! This is an except from the full article:
“AEC opened a school last August to train Cambodians in ear healthcare and audiology. A high school education is required, along with a commitment and unwavering passion to help people. It follows the World Health Organisation-approved methodology for addressing hearing loss in the developing world.
“There is a desperate need for more professionals,” Chroston said. “We’ve taken on eight students and we’re trying to move toward a fully accredited course so that we can take in a larger pool of students, but as a two-year course, it takes a little time.”
The two-year course is a way to build human resources in Cambodia and is meant to equip the students (future clinicians) with the ability to deliver audiology services and primary ear healthcare to those who need it in the country.”
Dang Kosal (24 years old) came to NFC at the age of 15 years in 2004 after surviving on the streets of Phnom Penh by shining shoes and selling newspapers while also taking care of his younger brother. Besides attending school at NFC he also worked at a cultural center and gained first knowledge about theatre production. After graduating from high school, Kosal left NFC and was sponsored as an intern at Khmer Mekong Films (KMF), a film and TV production company. He was quickly promoted from an intern to a paid employee because of his dedication, hard work and natural skills. While at KMF he worked in the roles of cameraman, film editor, director, script writer and co-host of a Cambodian TV program. After 2 years at KMF he was hired by BBC Media Action as casting and location manager for the BBC program Loy9. Kosal also has an impressive record as a rap artist, writing and performing a large number of hip-hop songs making social statements about life in Cambodia.
