One student, Reaksmey shared his feelings about the benefits from the life skill program after he graduated successfully.
“My name is Reaksmey. I am 20 years old. I’m a student that study English and life skill too in Salariin Kampuchea. For studying life skill I never know about it before. I always think that “what is life skill?” So when study it I know a lot of experiences and two main points that important for me like social education and career training. One thing I know how to become a good student or a good person in the life. And then I know how to do working in group. I can say that learning life skill is important for our lives and it has a lot of actions and chances like visiting hotels, vocational training schools and other places. I have more opportunity about employment and work experience, too.
Finally, I feel that I gain a lot from the life skill program if I compare to the past that I did not join the program. I would recommend to next generation in Salariin Kampuchea should learn it all together because it important for themselves. Why? Because it helps us to know about ourselves and future employment”.
