អ្វីដែលយើងបានរៀនពីមជ្ឈមណ្ឌលដំណើរផ្សងព្រេងនិងសិក្សា ចំបក់ហោះ។What we have learned from Jambok Hoas Adventure and Learning Center

People First, Keep Learning, Keeping Developing:

ការពារ ការស្តារឡើងវិញ និង ផ្តល់ការស្រលាញ់ ជំនួយ និងការគាំទ្រ Protect. Restore. Fund.

In April 2019, Phare arstists and team members went to a learning expedition to a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Prasat Sambo Preikuk and spend quality time together for our biggest staff event of the year for team building and learning. We stayed for 2 nights in Preah Vihear Province in Jambok Hoas Adventure Learning Center.

It was a great experience and we really did learn about from both the temple and the activities at the teambuilding learning center. We learn about our roles as Cambodian artists in the society today looking to the past heritage and pride as well as the 5 values at the adventure learning center:

1-) ផ្តោតការយកចិត្តទុកដាក់ សូមសង្កេត ស្តាប់ និងចូលរួមសកម្មភាពរបស់ក្រុមការងារ

Be present, look, listen and participate


I can do it!

3-) ទំនាក់ទំនង ផ្តល់ពត៏មាន ចែករំលែកគ្រប់កាកាលៈទេសៈ


4-) ដំណោះស្រាយដោយភាពច្នៃប្រឌិត! បញ្ហាកាន់តែធំគឺជាឱកាសកាន់តែច្រើនសម្រាប់ការស្វែងរកដំណោះស្រាយប្រកបដោយភាពច្នៃប្រឌិត។ ឧទាហរណ៍យើងចាប់ផ្តើមទស្សនីយភាពហ្វារនៅសៀមរាបដោយគ្មានថវិការ។ យើងរស់រានមានជីវិតហើយជោគជ័យ។ វាជាដំណោះស្រាយច្នៃប្រឌិត។

Creative solutions! The bigger the problem, the bigger the opportunity for finding creative solutions. ​For example we started Phare in Siem Reap without money. We survive and succeed. It was a creative solution.

5-) យើងគាំទ្រគ្នាទៅវិញទៅមក !

Support each other!

Walk the Dream with Dara

Dara HUOT for Phare Ponleu Selpak

“Jungle Trail / 32 km: like the Bayon Trail Angkor, this event will take place on the Angkor archaeological site in the province of northern Cambodia Siem Reap. This Trail of 32 km will be run on a wilderness routes, through rice fields and a natural environment of an incredible beauty without forgetting the crossings of small villages and in the background : the Angkor Temples.” 

You know, I am abit crazy. I love to just walk and get lost in the beauty of my beloved Siem Reap. And plus this sounds amazingly fun. 

Why 2,500 EUR fundraising goal?  
Well it’s Phare Ponleu Selpak (Brightness of the Arts)’s 25 years anniversary. This will fund study and living cost scholarship for students at Phare. How gratifying will it be if I reach this goal? And plus, I love to take numbers from the sky because my name is Dara.  


Okay. I finally decided to train and take better care of myself for a healthier ME so I can continue the journey to Cambodian artists career development and program sustainability with Phare longer and smarter. Thanks Phare Ponleu Selpak team for giving me a goal to work towards. My lazy self has to start preparing and conditioning my body from now on. Mind you, I’ll be doing Nordic/fast walking rather than running. Join me in this adventure if this is your cup of tea.  

I have been with Phare Social Enterprise for the past 7 years. I am a much happier person than I have ever been before. I have also learned to give without expecting anything in return. I have found meangings and peace. I learned to discover myself and my values. Thank you artists and Phare Dreatm Team. It is my privilege to be working with Cambodian young people and help them see and reach their own potentials.  Our social enterprise is doing well. We have been employing many artists and staff. We still have a long way to go to reach Phare NGO School’s full sustainability.  

I will raise fund to help students in need to study creative and life skills to become productive member of Cambodian society. 

I would greatly appreciate if you could help me in my fundraising efforts by making a donation to Phare Ponleu Selpak and bringing awareness around my fundraising efforts. There are no small donations. 

Donations are processed through Alvarum. European citizens will receive tax deductible receipt from Alvarum when making the donation.  

It is very easy and 100% secure. 

Thank you for helping me to reach my goal.  

From your crazy and fun friend, 
Dara HUOT

ការព្យាបាល Healing

ពេលវេលាជាថ្នាំព្យាបាលដ៏មានប្រសិទ្ធភាព។ ចូរអ្នកអនុញាត្តិអោយខ្លួនឯងនិងមនុស្សផ្សេងទៀតមានពេលវេលាគ្រប់គ្រាន់ដើម្បីដកដង្ហើម ដើម្បីគិត ដើម្បីយំ ដើម្បីនិយាយ អោយគ្រប់គ្រាន់។ អ្នកនឹងត្រូវបានធូស្រាលនិងព្យាបាល។

Time heals everything! Give yourself and others enough time to breath, to think, to cry to speak, to express. You’ll be healed.
