Thank you for your continued support of youths' Khmer traditional music. Recently another youth who joined the music class at the SCC center can earn income to support his family. Below is the report from Nuy's story:
He is 16 years old, living in Siem Reap province, Cambodia. Nuy is a 3rd of 6 children including 3 females whose father is a construction worker and whose mother is a housewife. In 2018, He was selected to learn Khmer traditional music. “Because my family is very poor living conditions, and I didn’t have any skills for making income to support my living and education, I was supported to join the music class,” Nuy said. During the period of the training as well as the Covid-19 in Cambodia, Nuy and the other youth team used their free time cause of the pandemic, practicing their music lesson every day at the SCC center where they are very skillful after the Covid has gone away. As a result, he can perform the music at any ceremony and has been hired regularly to play at a hotel in the central Siem Reap province. His monthly income in the around of more than 200 USD from the traditional music play is contributing to his family’s living conditions lot for food, study, and others. In responding to the SCC, he commits to becoming a better traditional music player and transferring the knowledge to the next generation who are in the same condition. He added, “In the future, I want to be a traditional music teacher to provide opportunities to poor children/youth of SCC”.
