New Executive Director
On august 1 our new Executive Director started at WRC! Ms Kong Vanthat, valued member of the Women’s Resource Center (WRC) board since 2009, is now stepping into the big chair whilst Khim Pisey prepares for new adventures and steps into the role of Program Manager.
We’re thrilled to have Vanthat’s expertise in a full time capacity! She has a master’s degree in Management and a wealth of experience including roles as Deputy Director at Sangkheum Center for Children and Sponsorship Officer at Plan International Cambodia.
New Women’s Rights and Gender Facilitator
Meet Lev Soknang. Soknang is from Siem Reap province and grew up with foster parents without siblings. She graduated high school in 2010. Previously she worked for Plan International , the Cambodian Women Crisis Center and at SBK.
“I am now excited to work at WRC in a position of Women’s Rights and Gender Facilitator. My role is to provide informal training on women’s rights, gender equality, family and safe migration to women, men, girls and boys. I am happy to share my knowledge and skills to help women and girls to gain their rights and full potential of decision making for their family and community.”
Congratulation to our Social Worker, Tan Senara. She has completed her 1 year course with First Step Cambodia on social work and counselling.
Senara said “This was a great opportunity for me to attend this long term course. I have more training and practising at the same time, so it gained more my knowledge and skill to support and work with my clients effectively”. We are very happy Senara finished her course so she can help all the women that drop in at our center and come to our workshops even better.
