Welcome to Bandos Komar Association

Partage has been operating programs in Cambodia since November 1989. Then it started by basic supports and it has developed progressively project focusing on education particularly in pre-schools and primary schools in rural areas and some villages surrounding target schools. There were six primary and six pre-schools in three provinces (Takeo, Kompong Speu, and Kandal) under Partage’s projects during the period of 1989 to 1999.

By July 1999, Partage Cambodia had been localized as “Bandos Komar Association”, which became a local NGO in order to take over all Partage’s projects. Since 2002, BK has expanded its programs to new target provinces such as Pursat in 2002 and Siem Reap in 2008.

Life Skills

Life skills are to provide support and equipment to children to ensure knowledge, skills and the right attitude in family and social life. They are also important for job search in Cambodia as well for the ASEAN Community (Association of Southeast Asia Southeast) in the future. When the children of farm families in rural areas drop out of school, they often migrate to other province far away from home to find job that they can earn some income for the survival of the family after the harvest. This migration is caused by the lack of professional skills.

To cope with this problem Bandos Komar has initiated a project “School Gardening” with the cooperation of teachers in schools supported by Bandos Komar . We bring together the theoretical and practical knowledge on agricultural work for elementary school children and those of college so they are able to farm life in the future. With the supply of knowledge and expertise on life skills, we also build the concept of children and youth to like farm work with access talent and self-ownership.

In fact, after receiving training on “the way of growing vegetables,” teachers and students have grown a few plots of vegetables such as cabbage, water chestnuts and beans. After harvesting, the group shares its production to other comrades so they can cook it at home. They sell the rest of the money collected is used to buy school supplies, keeping a few pennies for seed for next season.
