International Women’s Day

Dear everyone,

today is International Women’s Day. In Cambodia all the schools close on this date.
Our students told us that it is typical for the cambodian husband to make his wife (really) happy on this day. He cleans the house, cooks the food, washes the clothes, and they go somewhere to eat food together. And he gives a flower to her.

The theme of this year’s international campaign is „PledgeForParity“ (
We created a small surfey to ask our Khmer teacher and older students what they think about gender equality in Cambodia. We got surprised how much they actually do care about this topic. In this album we collected all the ideas together and sorted them again. There are a lot of different opinions mixed together. It is really interesting, please enjoy!!
