On Friday the 27th May 2011 Chao Hav, Ing Chanserey and I were privileged to be invited to the parents gathering at Matai (Khmer for kindergarten) CORDE in Sambok Ork Village Battambang, managed by Ms Sao Sokunthea. There were 5 mothers and 1 father at the parents’ meeting, together with Sao Sokunthea and her assistant teacher, Ms Sao. To give you some background information on Matai CORDEĀ  in Sambok Ork Village, there were 22 students enrolled and attending the Matai program, however since Khmer New Year, only 15 students have been attending. Sao Sokunthea visited family homes throughout Sambok Ork reminding them of Matai CORDE and encouraged 5 more families to send their children to Matai.
