About the organisation:
Global Village Cambodia is a non-profit organisation focusing on arts education in Cambodia. The goal is to revive the country’s traditional culture and to further students’ ability to engage with the international community.
Samlout High School, home to a thousand students in grades seven to twelve, is at the centre of a pilot project to introduce music education at an existing school in a war-torn region. The project is based on an alliance with the school's teachers and on working with indigenous musicians.
‘By working together with Cambodians in introducing music at one of the fastest growing schools, we are setting an example of music education uplifting a region, a school, and its students for generations to come.’
—Mathias Aspelin, Founder
During the project’s second phase, beginning in 2020, Global Village Cambodia will expand its activities beyond Samlout High School. Prince Norodom Ekcharin, grandson of the late king Norodom Sihanouk, has joined the organisation and will help oversee its evolving role in Cambodian schools. With a continued focus on improving music and arts education, the organisation will initiate additional projects that are fundamental to advancing Cambodians’ quality of life.
Global Village Cambodia was registered as an association in Finland, a member of the European Union, in 2013. It is currently undergoing registration in Cambodia. The organisation aims to acquaint students with Beauty, actively engage the imagination, foster creativity, refine the faculty of judgement, enhance cognitive performance, teach discipline and cooperation, promote gender equality, expand geographical and cultural horizons, help overcome inhibitions, and bring lifelong rewards associated with the mastery of a limitless form of expression.
Key individuals: the teachers at Samlout High School, Mathias Aspelin, Prince Norodom Ekcharin.
