Khmer Rouge Exploration


The main building that store bone and skulls of the Killing Field

From 1970 to 1975, Cambodia was in its peak point of the its worse regime, people with the same nation were colonized it own people with enforcement of slavery, torture, and kill. During that regime, people don’t have enough food, over work, and not social communication. That genocide killed thousands and thousands of people; currently there were and skulls of people floating out of the ground and different NGOs collect them and store it safely.


As I am one of the Cambodian, I found that it is really important to know about our country and analyses what went right and what went wrong so we don’t have to walk on the same footprint of the country again and again. In the 2016 and 2017 years of Liger, I was participated a Khmer Rouge Exploration, I feel sorrow for the people that were killed during that time. We went to the S21 jeal and the Killing Field to see all the bones and the place that used to kill people. In the Exploration my role was to create a story of the show for the visitor to watch with 49 actors. I spent a lot of time doing that, sometime in the essential class I asked my facilitator to work on the story. Sadly, everything turns out to be fail due to the time constrain . I feel an immense regret on this since it shows that I don’t respect the people who die at that time. I’m sorry, I tried my best but I can’t finish it on time.


Peace that buried people, who got killed during that time!

Changing Cambodia 2016-2017

Cambodia my own soul, this nationality is really developing we started from nothing to have something, we started from the end of Pol Pot regime where everything was diminished to now where infractures, religion, economic, education are extremely developing. In other words, since we are the developing this defines that multitude of sections is really needed to change. In addition, a Khmer idiom that stated, “តក់ៗ ពេញបំពុង” this means to change something big, we need to do step by step. Personally, this 2016-2017 year of the Liger Leadership Academic was a speeded year and speeded change to my country. As some examples, Iron Deficiency, Robotics, and Waste Management Exploration.

Iron is one of the main molecule that our body needs to keep us healthy, a lot of Cambodian have a lack of iron especially women since they lose a lot of blood. In our Iron Deficiency Exploration, we spended seven weeks on doing research, planning, communicating with the Lucky Fish and traveling different places to investigate various ways that people here get their iron, and also we collaborated with the Lucky Iron Fish to bring iron into humans body. We did research such as, but not limited to finding what type of vegetable that contains a lot of iron, and how to use the Lucky iron fish. Well, you might wonder what is Lucky Iron Fish? For this whole Exploration, we work with the Lucky Iron Fish company to distribute the iron fish that can be used to put into the food and it will releases the iron out of the fish, so we can ingest those iron, that is why it an iron that looks like a fish. In addition, if you don’t have iron in your red blood cell (RBC) you’ll get tired and dizzy, this means, you can’t do things well since the body is sick and how can our brain focus on the works. To dot connect this, we gave this fish to those family that was in the rural regions at Siem Reap to have more iron in their body. They were poor and definitely can’t afford to buy food that contains a lot of iron like beef, cabbages and morning glory. By giving this Lucky Iron Fish to those families, they would spend less money on food, but still get a lot of iron like other food. In this Exploration, we distributed about 200 fish to different regions and families at Siem Reap and about ¼ of the people were kids and teenagers. This clearly demonstrates that our team did a phenomenal job on helping people to be more active in their life, their families economic and their study. In conclusion, this Exploration did help the physical strength of Cambodia, people become more active, students have a better learning, the family spends less money on food, and lastly, Cambodia will have a stronger engine that will drive this country.

“Ze Zee,” the sound of the robot, the second round of the Exploration in year five and it was the busiest Exploration ever. At this time Cambodian famosity gets larger and larger since our team (Botjisu) participated in the competition VEX robotic at the Taipei American School, Taiwan. Botjisu name of the robot that created by the Liger students and it made out of metals and using real programming code. In this Exploration, the main focus was to create a VEX robot that is ready to participate in the VEX robotics competition internationally. Personally, we go a really strong and working hard team, as an example, at the last day that we will go to Taiwan we spend 24 hours working on the robot without sleeping and at the morning to went to Taiwan. We brought famosity to Cambodia because, we were the first robot team from Cambodia that participated in the VEX robotics competition and won the Judge award compares to other teams from different regions like Japan, China, Thailand, Vietnam, Singapore etc. This clearly shows, we try hard to work on this robots and it did give us what our hard work gave to it. Most of the people that were participated in that event were very proud of us since it was their first time that saw Cambodia team. In addition, we did not win the competition and there were few reasons behind it, the first one was our implements were every scarcity, plus the lack of experience in the robot. Moreover, we did inspire other adults and other young Cambodia to motivate that even though we were young, but we still can make it. Our team had participated in events like STEM festival and Maker Faire to share more about our robot and make them feel competitive with us. These are what we did to our country and our citizens to introduce them to more advanced technologies so at the time we grow up most of the people in this wonderful country will have more comprehension of technologies.

This is the fourth Exploration of Liger year and it was Waste Management Exploration, in this Exploration, the goal was to save the environments and to turn our idea into a business. Moreover, we were working with an organization (the CAKE project) at the Arikasak commune to improve their pilot project and turn that into a better and successful business. Since their money was keep getting out, so what we trying to do is to bring some money back to make it a negative feedback loop in their system. Our team spent our Saturday with the CAKE team to survey the villagers, are they able to afford some of their money to pay for trash collecting service. After the survey, we got 130 responses in total, and after we were collecting the data we wrote a proposal to give to the CAKE project. In this case, we feel that our Exploration helps to stabilize the idea of the people who have the heart to save the environment. Also in this Exploration, we went to Battambang province one of the cleanest city in Cambodia to explore more about the strategy of creating a compost from organic waste that originated from the market. We collaborated with the Comped startup, what they did was they went to the market and collected the organic waste that was rotten and useless to the sellers and the buyers then turns those into compost. Not only that, there was a Comped school that is located in the landfill region, more than this, the kids that were learning in this school don’t have enough books to read since it is really remote from other. Our team feels that we really want to help them and share the knowledge, so we went to that school for a half of the day to do workshop; did give them the Economy of Cambodia book and the Cambodian wildlife book. In these two scenarios we feel that we did change Cambodia by trying to find a sustainable solution for the project that trying the clean up Cambodian environment; provided a small education to a really really remote school by giving them two of our Liger books.

As a whole, this speedy year was the medium year for me because I did help to change my own country and my own people. In any condition, that wonderful year 2015-2016, Cambodia did change few things from me like; making people more active, giving a healthy life to people, finding a sustainable balance to the project that were trying to change Cambodia, giving books to a really remote region like the landfill at the Battambong, bring famousity to Cambodia by participated in the VEX robotics competition and lastly inspire people to have more competitive in technologies. In any consequences, my people live with better conditions.


Inventor Lesson

Part of STEM curriculum Liger provided us to learn about engineering two hours per week. In class, we learned about many processes to create something. This is part of what we learned which is a 3D modeling using Inventor. That was my first time learning about the Inventor, a 3D modeling software created by Autodesk, and I found out that it was a bit difficult for me. I had a struggle on, assembling the parts together. After learning about Inventor would help me with my engineering project like I can take those design to 3D print those.  This is an example how I use Inventor to create the car.

Waste Management

After the 7 weeks of Liger Digital Currency Exploration, I was insisted to learn about Wasted Management, which is kind of economic class. There were about 12 or 13 students in the group, and this time we spent less time on the screen instead more listening. This Exploration had continued from the last two Waste Management Exploration and every students have to learn this course. The goal of the Exploration was to help cleaning up the community and still make money out of it, our business plan was to collect the trash and organic waste from each house and shop then turns those into a usable product. The challenge to the plan was, people don’t really separate their waste so it is difficult to take all of those organic waste to turn into compost. Moreover, we was continued to finish the compost from the last team that they had made in tumblers. The last 2 weeks of the exploration we began to test our compost with different plants like morning glory, bok choy, and other. At the third week of the Exploration, we went to Batambong to do a research of how to make compost and visited the landfill at there. We went to the comped company that take organics waste (we also help them to collect the organic waste and it was really fun to me doing that) and turn it into a compost. After the trip, we don’t really have a plan of doing this, but we helped to take a survey about people’s waste at Arrrey Kasat at our weekend. I think this exploration helped me to understand more detail of the economy and the waste that people had also the behavior of separating the waste. I learned who to use the business cava and how to write the report (our report about the survey were sent to the ministry of environment). I enjoyed with this Exploration, even though sometime it felt boring of listen every day for 2 hours.

One chatbot can help people communication better

First of all, do you ever seen any one who have a problem with speaking? Well, I see those people nearly everyday it is my cousin, a young boy who see a sunlight nearly 10 years. But he also a young boy who not easily to communicate with other people, the reason is that he can’t pronounce the words well. One good thing about him is that we can read the litters. So I want to revolutionize this issue by creating a chatbot connects with the ability of him, where my cousin can read the words and show what paragraph is he trying to talk. I’m not the one who code this it is Djbril the one who code it, I just come up with this idea. I really want people to know this chatbot so much especially the one who can’t speak, but this only for people who can read Khmer. You can start this chatbot by type a word “Hi”…

Hackathon 2016

At the weekend Liger was invited to join the event call the Hackathon, and I am one of the students who went to that event also. This event is similar to the event call the Start Up Weekend, where we go into our group and spend the whole weekend making an app. So our team was trying to create an app about solving healh problem in Cambodia. “Let’s think about this, one family sick and they don’t know where to go also there’s no hospital, what should they do?” This is the problem that we are facing in Cambodia, so our team wants to introduce the teachnology to them by creating an app about it. What they have to do is just texting to us by SMS and answer all the questions that we have and at the last we give them the result. At the end of the week all the team must present their app to judges, so lastly our team got the THIRD PLACE of all the team who participate in it.


VEX Robotics competition

Our team!
That is our robot, everyone seems tired!

Last few terms of Exploration, I spent about 100 hours working on programming and building the robot for only two days of competition. You might wonder what competition did I participate in? Well, the competition that my team participates in is called the VEX robotics, it occurred in Taiwan at the Taipei America school. For my experience work on programming is a bit difficult because to code for this robot’s brain needs to be a C programming language, and I have a really little experience on C programming. I comprehended a lot of knowledge like learning C programming, building robots learn to collaborate with our team and more. I think that I have this Exploration is extremely powerful because we did inspire a lot of Cambodian students who love robotics adult’s mine set since we are the first team who join in this VEX competition from Cambodia. I felt apprehensive when one day before the was competition started when only three people from our team will control the robot and I was in one of those three. On that day I saw a lot of robots from different regions around Asia. We did practice controlling the robot but sadly our robot was really slow, while we are trying to practice our alliance came and trying to develop our robot by giving us 4 393motors to us which is really helpful to improve our robot’s speed. I felt so scared being in the competition while more than 300 eyes focus on us and trying to competing with other teams who are older than us (not age older, but experience older). The result shows that in 6 games we won 3 times, and then we did enjoy Taiwan! 


  • At Taiwan Samnang and I walked more than 5km carrying a box of the robot for 30 kg with a short amount of stops also with our 7 kg bags each. At last, we got big mussels on our hand on this trip. 😉
  • Before the day that we went to Taiwan, all the mechanic and programming team didn’t get sleep for the whole night, just trying to finish the robot and get ready for the competition tomorrow!  
  • One day after the competition, most of us went to the top of the mountain of Taiwan. OMG, the view was really awesome there a lot of clouds surrendering me and I felt really fresh!


This year of Liger (fifth year), I was participated in the event call ISPPMUN 2016. Last year I was also paticipated in this event too, and I was the delegate of Luxembourg, but in the ISPPMUN 2016 I was the delegate of the United Kingdom. I felt really pround that I join this event because it helps me to become more brave with debating and communicate with other people. So my message is that, if you are one of the people that use to scare and shy please join different events like this MUN.

The Policy statment:

Welcome delegates from all over the world, and good afternoon ISPP chairs.

The delegate of the United Kingdom is excited to be a part of this conference. We have some very important issues to discuss over the next few days and hopefully we can come up with some agreements.  In 2013, the UK donated 35 million dollars to the World Food Project to fight hunger in Africa. We feel it is very important to find creative solutions to the problem of hunger in the world.  In terms of returning cultural artefacts to the country of origin,  The United Kingdom has the Rosetta Stone from Egypt at the British Museum plus many other artifacts, and they all very well preserved and protected, so we understand the importance of preserving cultural objects. We also are strong believers in protecting the environment and deforestation in Southeast Asia will have impact on the entire planet.  Let’s work together to create and pass some realistic resolutions. Thank you!

The Resolution: 


QUESTION OF:  Feeding the World’s Growing Billions

SUBMITTED BY: United Kingdom

The Junior General Assembly 2,

Realizing that one-third of worldwide food produced is worth around 1 trillion dollars and is wasted or gets thrown away every year,

Keeping in mind that a flood hit the UK in 2007 and destroyed farmers land approximately 42  thousand hectares worth £89.5 thousand pounds,

Having considered that by 2030, the temperature in North America and Africa will increase by 2% and the rainfall will be 10% less,

Noting with appreciation the WFP (World Food Project) created a program of community food production,

  1. Proposes strict laws (like France) to ban the throwing away of expired fruits and vegetables;
  2. Proclaims all nations should research the use of products or objects that provide people more nutrition like  Lucky Iron Fish, or Insect flour;

Encourages teachers to teach about the food shock so they can know about the food crisis that we are facing now and in the future.


In this report it is talking about the debate of the delegates of the United Kingdom with is me in the Junior Assembly 2

Liger Digital Currency

My third round of the Exploration at 5th year, I was participated in doing code for the Liger Digital Currency (LCD). Since our director and founder suggested that by the sixth year of Liger, we would use the digital currency for the seniors to pay their food. So the school decided to create an application for the digital currency. For me, it was quite challenging to write codes, since I don’t really know that much of the coding. During that Exploration, I spent a lot of time writing codes and fixing bugs, as an example, at night I spent about 2.5 hours of 3.5 hours of free time to write codes (and the rest were doing homework). The process took a long time for me, I had to think different solutions and syntaxes to solve a problem. At the Exploration time, there were 5 members worked on different categories like 2 were working on the UX, 1 worked for UX and UI, and 2 working on the UI also our mentor, Allie, helped to organize and teach us. My role in the team was to jumping around from the UI to the UX, so it was uneasy to do that. I was very proud to finish the application in 7 weeks and showed it to our school director and founders. Sadly, there were a ton of errors in the app, then Allie come and invited me and my partner, Vuthy, to finish the app on time in the next 2 months! After hearing that news, I felt a bit happy and stress! Because I don’t think that app will work well, so both of us spent the whole summer break to finish the app on time. We changed most of the things like the user interface and the user experience. At my hometown, I woke up at 8:00 AM and at 9:30 AM I work on the application the whole day until 12:00 PM with small breaks. I felt a bit exhausted with the app, and the difficulty of communicating with my partner since we are about 200 Km away from each other. At last, the app working well, and it looks perfects to me, and people start using it. As a quote said, coding never ends. I love this thing!

Iron Deficiency Exploration

This is the fifth year of the Liger Learning Center, and my first Exploration was the Iron Defiency. Well most people in the world didn’t know the advantages of iron in our body and some of them didn’t know how to get those iron. Before I talk about the iron, I first want to introduce to you about the red blood cell (RBC). One fuciton of the RBC is to carry the oxigen (O2) to our body. So if we don’t have enough RBC in our body, that means we didn’t have enough RBC, and this means that we don’t get enough O2. To solve that issue we need to eat more green vegetable and red blood meat. There is one company that manufacture the product that we put in our soup or water, and it will give you more iron in the food and that company name Lucky Iron Fish.


So my facilitator Karen, made an Exploraiton about the anemia to help to advertise the Lucky Iron Fish to the Cambodain at Sem Reap to distribute the fish to the villagers at there. At that event, my team the iron deficiency Exploration made a presentation to introduce the fish to them, by making a acting presentation. At the end of Sharation the Lucky Iron Fish company gave each of us a Lucky Iron Fish. I really love this Exploration, and the reason is it helps me in science class a lot. This is my scratch project:
