Noung, eco-guide – Photo Story Cambodia
Photo Story Cambodia
Noung, eco-guide in Siem Reap region.
Coming from a numerous and poor family, devastated by the recent war, she was trained by international NGOs. There she learnt good English and natural agriculture bases.
At a young age, she already started to work in the countryside, teaching local people the ecological notions of a more natural agriculture, as well as some environmental basic principles.
Then, she begun to work with foreigners thanks to her English.
Her knowledge about plants and environment naturally made her a qualified eco-guide for Siem Reap region and the whole country, most generally. Today, she runs a small organisation of women Tuk Tuk drivers and guides in Angkor Wat and Siem Reap that she founded herself.
Her various experiences in life, brought her good communication skills as well as a very strong will-power that allows her to be also an efficient fixer for anyone’s projects in the country.
Her pride and strenght are balanced by a deep simplicity and a child heart that when opens, fills the air. This portrait is one of this moment.
