Topic: Woman’s Participation in Politics

Cue:
Historically, Khmer women played important role in various partsin living-way both culture and national leading. It can be proofed through the using of the word “Me” in Khmer or “Leader” in English such as Me Kruosaror householder, Me Phum or Chief Village, Me Doek Noam or Leader. Due to the chronic poverty, illiteracy, the long changing of the society and three decades civil war, people nearly forget the role of women particularly in leadership and politics.

San Sel reports:
………………………………………………………………………………………………………
Atmo Sound (Poem): Khmerwomenstill suffer, Khmer women cannot get education, and lives in poverty without job and in the hardship. (28 seconds)
Track 1 (Lead):
Mrs. Kroch Sam An, Lawmaker of Cambodian People Party (CPP), has revealed her struggling life in politics inthe National Forum on “The Empoweringthe Number of Women to Participate in the Election in Municipal, Province, City, District, Khan Election 2014”. With the hand carrying microphone, Mrs. Kroch Sam An told about her struggling all the obstacle with the empty hands until is recognized in the society. Mrs. Kroch Sam An has involved in the politics since her husband passed away and left a one year old child for her. She said that she’s changed her attitude and behavior from a young woman who was not good at talking and shy to talk with high ranking officer to be a politician.
Clip1:“After 1979 in Khmer Rouge regime, I was an orphan, but I struggled until 1994 I had gotten married for 3 years 8 months and 22 days. My husband was killed in the regime, and I became a widow with a 1 year old child and right now he is 18 year old. The struggling through all the hardship with the empty hands until I can stand for the election for a lawmaker. From one mandate to other, I have selected as the lawmaker for three times since third mandate. This is my brief background of a woman who struggledand waspreviously a young woman who was not good at speaking, but we also learn, also do and also struggle.We have to speak and to do in a correct way to find the support from our surrounding people. If we are not active and supportive, we don’t have today.”
Track 2:

According to the official result of National Election Committee (NEC), there are 20.33 percent of women or equal to 23 seats in the parliamentary which has totally 123 seats.

In the last fourth mandate in 2008, there are 22 percent of women, so if we compare to this fifth mandate, the number of women in Parliamentary has decreased around 2 percent.

According to The Cambodian Center for Human Right (CCHR) said that the number of women is lower than the previous year. In this 2013 election, Cambodian People Party (CPP) has 16 percent of women and Cambodian National Rescue Party (CNRP) has 10 percent of women.
Ministry of Women Affair’s website wrote that “the representation ofwomenintheexecutivegovernment isstilllow, speciallytheroleofmaking decisionbothinthenational, provincialanddistrictadministration. Meanwhile, thenumberofwomeninthelegislativeprovisionssuchasjudges, prosecutors,andlawyersalsoare limitedif wecomparetomen.”
Mrs. ThidaKhus, Executive Director of SILAKA Organization, said the number of woman in Commune and district has only 12 percent and it is equal to 92 communes and districts among the total number of 1633 communes and districts.
Clip 2:“This few numbers can effect seriously on the efficacy of practicing of consultancies in the committee to discuss on the women and children’s affair, those roles are to provide service to 52 percent of women throughout the country.”
Track 3:
“Woman can’t do anything because she can’t even look over anything around thestove”, this is the Khmer old age wordwhich always say to the woman, whenever they are discussing about social issue or politics. Some blocks or obstacles make the women isolate from the politics.
Atmo sound (Poem):Right now, Khmer women can receive an honor and the government is empowering women’s value. (15 seconds)
Track 4:
Cambodian government has determined to practice the Millennium Development Goal (MDG) by intending to increase 30 percent of women in politics and public service in 2015.
Mrs. Kroch Sam An, Cambodian People Party (CPP), advised that to boost up the women to be brave and to involve in politics is depended on the effort of women, themselves. She added that women should be brave to express their idea to the public.
Clip 4:“All the women have to remember a proverb said that “Rule is power, and appointment is the weapon”. Women have to behave softly and gently, not for flirting. But for letting other people learn and accept us by showing our gentleness, thoroughness, and ability to attract the support from the men.”

Track 5:

Answering to question in the forum on “how to increase the number of women in politics”, Ms. NeangSovantha, CNRP’s representative, suggested that women should do their best to build up knowledge, skills, and abilities to draw the attention and value from men and society. She said that if women have enough ability, they will be able to increase the number of women in politics.

Clip 5:“Our party has the women’s network to spread the achievement of local women because normally in the central committee every person has his or her own work, but we have to hear from the women’s network; moreover, it plays as an important institute to bring the information to the central committee to be heard about what the women are doing. I answer that we don’t need quantity, but we don’t need the quality. If there is the increasing number of women, but they can’t work. Having few is better.”

Track 6:

MsSokPanha, president of BanteaySrey organization, said understanding the law and other legislations make women be brave to challenge with men.

Clip 6:“To boost up women in politics, we need to build up their ability and knowledge. Education has to be based on real experience to reflect to real situation including some laws and policies of the government. It lets the women know about the willingness of the government to encourage women participating in politics and to know what is lacking in the society nowadays. In fact, for the 2014 election, it is really important for women and community as the whole; especially, female leader, authority, and government who have various roles to spread the law related to the involving of women in Municipal, Province, City, District, and Khan Election to let the women know what their roles are.”

Track 7:

Increasing the number of women in politics does not mean that growth of women parliamentary increased, but it is the way to increase the number of women in grassroots at municipal, province, city, and district level.
Mrs.SengChantho, commune chief from Kampong Thom province, said that NGOs plays an important role to empower women’s right and to encourage them to participate in politics.

Clip 7:“She saw that I am the only one woman in the community who always take care of women. Thus, I was invited to join the training session of SILIKA. It makes me become less shy and fear. Last time, I’m so scary to express my idea because I don’t have experience and my knowledge is limited. But after taking care and help to the women, it makes them love and supports me.”

Track 8:

She countinued that the government should have the examination to get the position as the leader.

Clip 8:“If we want the women to stand for election in the large number. we should ask the government to set up the examination for selecting the candidate for municipal governor position. Moreover, the women should summit a petition to government to ask for making a law for putting the number of women and men in the election. Women are not inability in the village or in the commune. Women are more brave and knowledgeable than before.”

Track 9:
Ministry of Women Affairs recommended that to encourage women in second mandate of Municipal, Province, City, District, and Khan Council Election is importantly to be focused on the increasing the women representative in these councils.
It should be informed that Cambodia will hold the second mandate of Municipal, Province, City, District, and Khan Election on May 18, 2014. This election is only for the member of Municipal, Province, City, District, and Khan who are allowed to drawballot and the ordinary people are not allowed.

I am San Sel, reporting from Phnom Pehn, Department of Media and Communication.

The Spirit of Volunteerism in Cambodia has gained recognition and popularity today because of its noble concept of helping people by providing aid to the community in need.

Building Self-reliant Farming Communities 2022”

Standing in the front of the stage and in the middle of row of the seats of 200 farmer representatives and with the microphone on his hand, said that “I plan to develop Cambodia to be the world leader in producing and supplying high quality organic rice, especially organic fragrant rice, by 2022”, Mr Yang Saing Koma said in the Conference at Cambodian-Japanese Cooperation Center (CJCC).

“As I have become interesting in agriculture since I was born in the remote area and somehow I have gotten some influence from my father. However, he is a teacher; he also adored farming. Moreover, I have experienced and seen that agriculture is able to help many people”, Koma explains. Living in a family which father worked as a teacher, my family somehow had lived happily with normal living standard. The approaching of brutal regime, called generally Pol Pot regime, made my family lost the pillar of the family as my father was killed in that regime, said in the sad face.

In 1970, my family moved from my native village, Takeo province to live in Phnom Penh city.  In 1975, my life is not different from other people in Cambodia; at the age of 9 year old, I was forced to live far away from my mother separately and done farming from the early morning to the late evening, Koma recalled sadly.

Mr Yang Saing Koma, at the age of 47 continued that after the death of his father, all the burden and responsibility were felled to his mother to be the bread-winner to support six children in the family.

Living in a family without the support of father, Yang Saing Koma tried to earn money while he was studying by helping mother to sell cake, ice, and vegetable.

In spite of facing such the financial problem in the family, he had never given up his studying until graduating grade 10, called High School Diploma nowadays, from high school in Phnom Penh. After graduating from high school in 1984, he had gotten the scholarship to continue his Bachelor Degree in Leninism at Germany under the support of Cambodian government.

“Studying at Germany originally, I chose to specialize in Communism”, Koma added. However, after one year later of studying Leninism, I changed to study Agriculture instead because I thought that this major can help many poor people. Thus, ‘I specialized in agriculture and earned his Ph. D from the University of Leipzig, Germany, in 1995’”, Saing Koma recalls.

“After finishing my Master Degree and PhD in 1995, I returned to Cambodia immediately to get involved in agriculture”, Saing Koma said. He has spent his life over 15 year in agriculture and rural development, especially in the field of action research, training, educations, publication as well as organization development and management, he added.

On 26 August 2012, Yang Saing Koma went to Philippine to get 2012 Roman Magsaysay Award. The Ramon Magsaysay Award is given to persons regardless of race, nationality, creed or gender who address issues of human development in Asia with courage and creativity, and in doing so have made contributions which have transformed their societies for the better. Dr. Koma, who is only the fifth person from Cambodia to receive the award, is being recognized for his creative fusion of practical science and collective will that has inspired and enabled vast numbers of farmers in Cambodia to become more empowered and productive contributors to their country’s economic growth, according to the Roman Magsaysay Award website.

Mr Yang Saing Koma—a former teacher of Royal University of Agriculture (RUA) from October 1995 to 2003– worked with Japanese NGO Japan International Volunteer Center (JVC) from 1995 to 1997. “I decided to stop my teaching at RUA because I have been extremely hectic with business at CEDAC, and I want to help directly to the farmers and to conduct more research and experiment regarding agriculture” Koma explained.

Then, I set up a NGO known as Cambodian Center for Study and Development in Agriculture (CEDAC) in August 1997, called “Putting Science at The Service of The Farmers”, with 7 members of his colleagues under the support of French to a leading Cambodian NGO in the field of agriculture and rural development.

“Physically, and mainly, I have created CEDAC because I want to create the Farming Community in order to empower the living’s standard of the Cambodian farmers and Cambodian agriculture to be more developed and be the world’s best exported country in agriculture.”

Mr Yang Saing Koma is the president of CEDAC and also the chairman of CEDAC enterprise, a social enterprise set up by CEDAC in August 2009.

So far, he has also helped to set up the National Farmer Association, which is known as Farmer and Nature Net (FNN) in 2003; and currently he is serving as the advisor of the FNN. Besides working with CEDAC, he also served as chairman and member of Board of Directors of 6 local NGOs, said Saing Koma.

The health of our government and our nation depends on the health of rice farmers. Paddy prices are going down everywhere this year. If it continues like this, the situation can be serious, especially after the harvest of dry season rice in February and March. We are doing our best to support some of the cooperating farmers to receive fair prices for their products. However, we need national policies, strategies and concrete actions to deal with this issue, especially to ensure fairer prices for our hard working rice farmer and for the sake of national food security, said in his Facebook.

“I have created a project called, “Building Self-reliant Farming Communities 2022”, Koma said. I will focus on promoting three main ideas which will make rice farmers to be rich such as growing fragrant rice to sell by using organic methods, selling milled rice instead of paddy, and allocating parts of the income from selling milled rice to invest in rice mill cooperatives, Koma explain in his Facebook.

“I am eager to empower the natural agriculture in Cambodia by creating the Self-reliant Farming Community, and to encourage the 100 thousand farmers to increase their product by creating rice mill community and to make them understand how to use the waste from their product to serve more for their agriculture by using waste to feed chickens or ducks and somehow to use it as the fertilizer for vegetable or other plant. Moreover, we have encouraged them create “Loaning Community”—saving money step by step and providing the loan to the needed farmer, Koma said hopefully. Right now we are planning to create these projects with 13 provinces by selecting the talent, willing and potential farmers who want to be the real farmer and to be the rich farmer; moreover, in the future, we will spread the project national wide.” Koma said in the low pace.

To reach this goal, I need to get more than 400 qualified and committed farmer community assistants to work with more than 100,000 good small-scale organic rice producers. The first group of trainees will be recruited in February 2013. CEDAC needs to find around 2000 USD to support each trainees for one year to develop their professional capacity to work for the farmers, said Saing Koma.

Mr Bao Vuthy, Program Coordinator of CEDAC said that so far we have helped many Cambodian farmers to improve their skills and to create farming family or farming community. Recently, conduct field visits to Kampong Chhnang province under the framework of the project “Improving the Livelihoods of Rice Farmers in Kampong Tralach and Samaky Meanchey district, Kampong Chnang Province”, accompanied Ms Noriko Tsujimoto, Asian Community Trust representative, according to CEDAC’s information.

“We right now have offered the rice mill cooperative investment fund to the farmers from 3 districts are Kamchaymear, Sithor Kandal and Tramkok district, and each districts will receive 1000 million riel to develop their rice mill cooperatives during 2013,” said Saing koma in the conference at CJCC.

As what our prime mister, Hun Sen announced that it had set 2015 to show this nation’s competence in becoming one of the major rice exporters to world’s markets, and to have 500 Cambodian millionaires to develop Cambodia. I plan to have 100,000 rice farmer millionaires to develop rural Cambodia to be better place to live for everyone. This project is officially launched from 03 to 04 of January 2013, Koma said.

In 10 year ahead from 2012 to 2022, CEDAC has empowered 100 thousand Cambodian national-wide farmers to be the ownership of organic rice mill in order to produce organic rice with the high quality to sell to both local and international markets, Mr. Yang Saing Koma said proud fully.

under the legs of elephant as the symbol of the province. At 10:30 am, we all have prepared for community service at one poor primary school with only one building and containing only ten classes by training to sing four song and preparing the educational activities to the students during this first of June.

Walking under cloudy sky and slightly bright of sunshine, and looking at the crowd of children standing under the trees with green leaves, around 250 students at the age between seven to ten year-old with smile on their faces looking excitedly at a group of students who came from Department of Media and Communication (DMC) which is under the control of Royal University of Phnom Penh.

They have taken around four months to prepare and wait for a community service on the first of June, 2012 to one of the poor primary school, named Prey Sro Gei primary school standing alone with the poor building and empty large campus with a few tree in it, but with a large green grass. At that time around 27 university students from DMC with Khmer alphabet T-shirt standing as five lines face-to-face with the twelve lines of the local students with school uniform standing under the shadow of the tree and cloudy sky with bight shine of the sun through the green leaves.

We all have done many activities by guarding by a professor, who is wearing black trouser with a pair of white boot and short-sleeves color shirt and wearing pink and white Khmer kroma on his neck, walking in a quick step with white big microphone on his right hand raising up as if he is walking and talking with black glasses on his left hand, walking into the queue of ten students who is standing on the ground with half of the grass and half of red rock. Professor Sombo Manara had

All the students had to stand still round three minute until DMC students leaded each of the lines as one of them standing in the from of the line and another standing at the back of the lines with hand firmly as a huge circle to show their unity and their closeness being in the shape of circle, each of them have shouted “DMC” and “Prey Sro Gei” by raising the right hand up and shouting it out spontaneously to make all of them stay in touch with each other in their sense. All of the students had sited as a circle in a group which contains around ten or fifteen students and two of DMC students sited in the central of the circle in back to back to take turn in educating them regarding health care, preventing danger, setting goal of life, and sharing educational experience, and how to protect themselves from danger such as thunder, dengue fever. Moreover, to give children’s to them on their day, on the first of June.

After the whole process of the community service with all the children successfully, we prepare everything to get on the 30 seat bus which is landing in front of the school to have leisure at one big lake, called Steng Chey Neath, which took only around fifteen minute. Walking on the wooden, large bridge and one red land to the lake, the sound of flowing water from the nearby bankment, many local people are swimming, and walking in the walk with the big smile on their faces.

The next day on July 02nd, 2012, getting on the bus around 8 am to get field trip at Sombo Prey Kork Temples, unfortunately because of the heavy rain last night, the road from the national road to the temple was damaged so seriously that it causes the route become slide like oil on fried pan. After the hot, nervous, serious feeling on the way, we all make a unwilling decision to get field tripe at Son Touk Montain instead. Walking on steps to reach the top mountain with around 20 minute, and learning each significant part of the mountain with the young guide who is under 13 year-old by tell each part of the mountain though what they known in their mind to earn the money for their living way.

We all arrive at Phnom Penh at 6 pm, with the feeling of nostalgia– a feeling of pleasure and sometimes slight sadness at the same time as you think about things that happened in the past and wish all the past can happen again on day. Waiting for my brother to pick up for home under the shine of the light from streetlight in front of Royal University of Phnom Penh with around ten friends with light-hearted mind, let’s go!!! Bye!!! Bye!!! Everyone!!!

Meanwhile the development of our Country, Youths in Cambodia also have the updated idea for sharing and joining the social task in order to help and move the advance in our society forwards. Many youths are volunteering actively at many different places such as Cambodia Red Cross, Cambodia-Asian Youth Association, and other are joining community service to help poor people in rural area by donating food, and money. Moreover, all of them have helped the next generation of Cambodia, children by providing study material to erase the illiteracy in Cambodia.

Why do youth want to help the society? According to coordinator of Cambodia Red Cross of Royal University, Mr. Reat Sokon, 27-year-old, said that nowadays the young people in Cambodia are enthusiastic in helping to other people by sharing experience of their studying, and saving the victims who are suffering from flood, accident and so on. They can get uncountable benefit from all of these volunteer seeing that all of they can know how to communicate and build more network in the society to simply them to get better job after graduating from university. Furthermore, they can get more priority for the scholarship because the volunteers have learned a number of useful things to move the advance of our country. Mr. Hem Chansopiak, 19-year-old and a year two student at Royal University of Agriculture had told that he have volunteer as the president of agriculture team for his university at Cambodia-Asian Youth Association in order to develop the advance of agriculture, the main factor of country’s development, and he also added that so far he has help to educate the health care of children and how to grow crops and it is the great time for him to take all the theories that he learned at school  to practice in the real life. For another volunteer student at Cambodia-Asian Youth Association, Mr. Sok Senghor, a year two student at University of Management said that he work volunteered due to the fact that he wants to know the situations that are happening in our society and want to educate other students to know about the situation of the society in the future as preparing for the ASIAN integration in 2015 and for the job market in the future to compite with other countries. Recently, I and some of my class-mate have join a community service to donate money and other material such as rice and other grocery to help the old people at Cambodia Retirement Village, located in Chambak Village, Chong Ompil Commune, Kang Chhreach District, Prey Veng Province, and we all have donate some study material to the children at the village as well. Furthermore, during the donation of the book, we all try to save this valuable time by educate the children by telling the novel and ask them to find the theme of the story and tell about the value of education of the book. This Association is created by the mastermind of Mr. Kim Vuthy, 29-year-old by the mean of being grateful to all the old people who are facing hardship in their lives such as begging money and living lonely. By seeing all of these difficulty, he think that one day if he has enough ability and chance, he will create one association in order to erase all the obstacles from the living of the old people. It is like the magic of the god that his unbelievable Continue Reading »

            This legend is the well-known legend, which is talked from mouth to mouth in Cambodia every year. When the Khmer Happy New Year eve is arriving, all the people are quite enthusiastic to know about the history of Khmer New Year’s celebration. On upon a time, there is a man whose name, Dhammabal Palakumar, who is the cleverest of other people and can deal with all kind of problems correctly, speak all animal’s and bird’s languages. On day this prestige was heard to Kabil Mahabrahma, the king of the heaven, and then he came to meet Dhammabal Palakumar at human’s world. Then, he asks three question to Palakumar and bet that if Palakumar cannot answer correctly, he have to cut his head. In contrast, if he can, Mahabrahma will cut his head as the loser. Mahabrahma ask Palakumar to give the definition of the happiness in the morning, in the afternoon, and in the evening by giving seven days to solve the questions.
From day-to-day have passed, and the pointing day is approaching, but Palakumar still cannot find out the right answer for Mahabrahma. He decides to go to forest to die there secretly. Fortunately, while sleeping under two palm tree, he heard a couple of eagles is having a small talk that tomorrow we will have corpse to eat because Mahabrahma bet with Palakumar with three questions and right now Palakumar cannot solve the questions, thus we really could eat him. After that, male eagle asked to female eagle what are the answers of those questions? Palakumar heard the talk of both angles that happiness in the morning of people is one the face that is why people wash the face after getting up; in the afternoon happiness of people appear on their chest, so people wash their chest, and in the evening happiness of people is on the feet that is why people wash their feet before going to bed.
The day of the appointment is arriving; Palakumar give the answer to Mahabrahma correctly, then on behalf of the loser, Mahabrahma have to cut his head but before cutting ask seven of his daughters put his head on the golden dish by saying that if his head falls on the ground, it will get on fire and burn everything on the earth. Moreover, if that head falls in to the ocean, ocean will become dry. From that time on, seven of his daughters need to take turn in order to take care her father’s head every year. This is the scene of legend which is talked and spoken from mouth to mouth in Cambodia.

Life is the way of living things can exist in the world, and try to fight which any kind of obstacle seeing that living in the world we all always face bad or good things. Some problems is too hard for us to find the solution to restore or to amputate it , so it demands all the people upgrade themselves by taking that problem into discussion by the mean of learning what is right and wrong, what is logical and illogical.

The fantastic day is called “Fund Raising Day” that is celebrated annually to help different provinces in Cambodia; Moreover, after the whole morning of celebrating the great Fun Raising day, there also have many different activities which were hold by students such as dancing, comedy show, and concert. This year is quite different from another year because many stores and activities were joined by the many students from different classes. In the evening annually don’t have a lot of students joined the activities, but this year everything was changed; more than 400 students spend their money around 1.5$ for the ticket to see the concert at Milti-purpose hall at Cambodia-japan Cooperation Center (CJCC). The end of the concert around 800$ was gotten from the price of tickets to offer to the charity. At that time I volunteered as the concert organizer for Our Own Project Program to prepare the hall for all of the audiences’ seats, I feel as if I am being over the moon because I saw that many students coming to see the concert and   got great amount of money to help the poor people in Ta Keov province. I see that Khmer generations are really united because they sacrificed to do their best in order to perform by the mean of raising fund, it can reflect well on the Cambodian Culture of Sharing.

I was trained in the great major of blog creating, called Blog and Multimedia Training Course which is co-organized by Department of Media and Communication (DMC) and supported by Fulbright Alumni Association of Cambodia.
