Our Learning Center in Takeo, Cambodia is currently in the process of major transitioning at the crossroads. It is being restructured and overhauled which poses many challenges on the team.
The previous Head of Learning Center has resigned. However, he still assists the center on a part-time basis. This gives us the time to look for a successor. The search for the new person has turned out to be difficult, as there seems to be no one adequately qualified despite diverse hiring approaches we have tried. Hence, an entirely new flexible approach is required. To span this period we have given training to librarian Sopheak Tok who has been very capable but still young: Sopheak finds it very challenging to lead and manage an entire learning center on her own due to the lack of leadership experiences and competencies. Therefore, we asked Sreydieb Long, the Head of Learning Center of our Mobile Learning Center in the region of Takeo, to join hands with Sopheak to co-manage the learning center.
The learning center has great potential, as it is conveniently located right in the heart of the provincial capital, a relatively developed city compared with the other areas of the province. As long as we have a highly competent and wise leader as Head of Learning Center, the center has a good chance to become one of the most trusted learning institutions in Takeo province. Our goal is to embark the learning center on a new journey to creating lasting changes and real impact for the lives and futures of our students.
