Can You Help Children go to School?

Country Director, Onn Sokny
Country Director, Onn Sokny

Can you help children with disabilities go to school?! We can with some exciting news here at Epic Arts which will raise our influence at government level!

Country Director Onn Sokny has been selected for the NGO Education Partnership Committee on Primary Education. This is great news for our Inclusive Education Programme which aims to empower, educate and transformchildren and young people to lead independent &fulfilled lives.

Over the next two years Sokny and the committee will be working together with the Cambodian Government to create a strategy to reach the 2030 UN Sustainable Development Goal to ensure inclusive and quality education for all! 

Sokny has humble beginnings at Epic Arts and has risen through the ranks over the last 12 years from Dance Workshop Participant to Country Director.

Describing how she felt about her disability as a child Sokny said,

“I used to pretend that I didn’t have a disability. I would cover my leg every day with a long sarong. I wouldn’t dare to look in a mirror because I hated what I saw and how I looked. Each day I wished that people would be nice to me, that they wouldn’t look down on me. I didn’t realise that I had the right to dream, that I even had a right to a future. When I think back to that little girl I want make her believe in herself. I want to tell her it will get better, you are unique & valued. You’ll find people who will believe in you and eventually you’ll believe in yourself!”

Growing up with a disability Sokny knows the challenges that children with disabilities face and she’ll now be making sure that they’re represented and their needs are considered at government level.

Most importantly Sokny is on a mission to make sure that children with disabilities have the same access to education as non-disabled children and they can dare to dream.
