  1. Dear Mrs. Mu Sochua;

    I am so impressed by all your activities in order to fight against human right (and women rights) abuses in Cambodia. I am a law student and a member of the Harpswell Foundation. I would like to inform you that you are my role model and you have a big influence for me to do something for a better Cambodia. I saw the advertisement above finding volunteers. I have a law background and I am now an exchange student in Bard College, NY. If there is anything I can help, please feel free to tell me. I am more than happy to help.

    Regards,
    Savada Prom

    Dear Madam.
    I am very happy to read your page about Volunteer. I don’t think I can meet all the requirements above except photography. For now, I am a student at a state university, and my major is not related to the requirements above. However, I own a DSLR Camera and I think I can be an aid of photography to you. You can contact me directly via my blog.
    Best Regards,
    Ta Mab

  4. Hi, I’ll be coming to live in Cambodia (Phnom Penh) in March 2012 having recently left my position as Policy and Strategy Officer for Rape Crisis (England and Wales) which I’d been doing for 4 years. Previous to that, I was the Coordinator of a local Rape Crisis Centre but was involved nationally with campaigning and lobbying on the issues of (specifically) sexual violence.

    I have a wide exerience of working in the violence against women and girls (VAWG) field including setting up and developing new Charities – I’ve recently sat on the steering group for a new Rape Crisis Centre in Suffolk (UK) and have written their 3 year Delivery and Business Plan including their Funding Strategy.

    I have represented Rape Crisis in Government Stakeholder groups on VAWG and have been successful in lobbying Government to raise the profile of sexual violence on their agenda and also to provide core funding for Rape Crisis Centres across the UK. I often represented Rape Crisis in the media (television, radio, press etc) and have written articles for a range of publications (i.e. http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2009/jun/10/rape-victims-police)

    I’m very proud of what I’ve been able to assist Rape Crisis to achieve in the time that I was with them and I’m keen to bring what I’ve learnt to support women’s equality and human rights in Cambodia.

    Please let me know if you think I can be of any assistance in your Campaign.

    Best Wishes

  5. Dear Gracious Madam, if I may excuse myself from volunteering my physical services ;mainly because I’m a rather ancient ex-pat. can I put to you a suggestion for your wider political campaign.
    You will be aware, how the Government of the day is only too happy to have the fine troops of the R.C.A.F. sent to far off lands, in order to act as peacekeepers, and de-miners.
    Can I ask whether any forward thing political party in this wonderful country of yours, would be willing to encourage a scheme whereby the brave de-miners of the R.C.A.F could work with the current staff of C.M.A.G. in order to speed up mine clearance in Cambodia.
    As they are already fully trained, the volunteer soldiers could be given an enhanced level of salary, plus a family sized plot of land (with Title). This would have the effect of releasing valuable land for the production of agricultural products. At the same time increasing the GDP of a country that I’ve lived in for more than 11 years now, and in love with for about the same time. Please kick the idea around with your political allies.
    Good luck
    A.N.Admirer.

    • Very important input you gave me. Yes, I will brin g it up with colleagues and when we are in power, that is exactly what we will do.
      land is lIfe and it is a human right to have land.
