Welcome to LIFT issue 50

Welcome to LIFT issue 50

We all know that daily life is different depending on where you live in the Kingdom, but most of us have only a vague idea of what it would actually be like to spend your life somewhere besides the place you call home.

In this week’s issue, we look at what makes the countryside in Cambodia different from the city, and, more importantly, what aspects of our lives are consistent across the county.

Two of our writers tell us about what they saw in the countryside while visiting Mondulkiri, and we caught up with two rural high school students, in the area to participate in a peace building workshop, who talked to us about their perspective on the city, and how it compared to the towns they come from.

You will notice that we are in promotion mode at the moment, and we hope that you will find some time to participate in the competitions we are sponsoring. Whether you are skilled at writing, design, or networking, their is a prize waiting for you.
