Library vs Book stop

With improved resources, education is becoming the main sector to develop in Cambodia and the government has put a lot of effort into it.  In the Kingdom of Cambodia, there are a growing number of private and public schools, libraries and book shops to serve students who are keen to expand their knowledge.

Furthermore, for students interested in reading, the library serves an important role. It provides an inavaluable resource for students to research, and read about, topics related to their studies.  However, there are some libraries, especially in the provinces, that do not have enough resources for students. That’s why Lift reporter Dara Saoyuth is concerned about the lack of books for additional study (pages 3 and 10).

Students have many ways of gaining knowledge, such as from schools, libraries, discussions with friends or  experts, school trips, and exchange study programs. In regard to this aspect, our reporter Narin Sun brings you an informal lesson through a field study with friends and teachers (pages 6-7).

Another story focuses on our youth of the week, a girl who was awarded a prize and used it to develop the community by teaching children to work together and transfer their knowledge to others in the community.

Ngo Menghoung brings that girl to this issue of Lift, where she shares her own experiences and opinions. 

Lift is always with you. Please enjoy your reading!
