Washing the Dishes

On a recent trip to Kampot Province, we visited our DDP House hostel for students in our Education Project just as they were finishing their lunch.  They take turns doing the chores and it was this young man’s day to wash the cooking pots.

Cleaning Up

Today we had to run down to Kampot Province for some meetings.  We got over to DDP House, our hostel for young deaf people in our Education Project, just as they were washing dishes after lunch.

Khmer New Year 2017 — #2

Before the deaf people and their families returned to their traditional villages to celebrate with their elders there, the Deaf Community Center had a celebration for all the deaf community the Sunday before the New Year exodus began.  Click here and scroll down to #2 to see the photos.

NTID Visit

Last week our visitors to DDP were from Finland and today they were from the National Technical Institute for the Deaf in Rochester, New York.  Chris Kurz and Tommie Sarchet (white sweater) came to discuss training for teachers in deaf education, something that is greatly needed in Cambodia.

ANM (Sunday)

After two days in Kampong Cham Province, Kalle returned really excited about the video he shot there and his experience with the deaf community outside of Phnom Penh.  Then he returned to the Deaf Community Center in Phnom Penh to film more with the local deaf populace.  Click here to see today’s activities and then scroll down to Sunday.
