SCW’s 20 years of nature protection: 1999 – 2019

On 13 June 2019, SCW celebrated its’ 20th Anniversary at the Himawari Hotel in Phnom Penh. Around 100 people – donors and partners, as well as civil society and media representatives – joined the celebration.

In the evening, Mr. TEP Boonny, SCW Executive Director, delivered the welcome remark. This was followed by impressions from two community representatives (Mr. Sav It from CPA O’Tieng in Ratanakiri Province, Mr. EM Sokhun from CFi Chey Odorm in Ratanakiri Province), a Chapey music performance by SCW’s Program Manager Mr. CHAN Vicheth and two short movie screenings. A lucky draw with SCW materials as prices (books, honey, etc.) made 12 lucky winners smile.

Additional speeches were given by a government representative, Mr. KIM Sarin (Deputy Director of Community Livelihood Department, MoE), as well as SCW’s strategic partner The Johanniter International Assistance – Ms. Sinead McGrath.

The final remark was delivered by SCW’s Chairperson of the Board of Directors, Mr. CHHIM Vandeth. The SCW birthday cake cutting concluded the official part of the evening.

In 2020, SCW is planning to set up and launch a Youth Development Program for young professionals and students, where they can gain theoretical and practical experience in the field of environmental protection.
