I felt the devastating difference in life and the opportunity you are gifted with just because one was born in a country like Japan opposed to a developing country like Cambodia.
I visited an NGO in the province, when I was approached by the local subsidiary with the idea to teach Japanese to the students, so I decided to stay and teach some basic Japanese. I was the only teacher with no other Japanese people around, they had no interactions with Japanese people or the language. So, I spent about two months teaching them basic Japanese and went back to Japan.
The Japanese class was suspended as I went back to Japan, but I had a chance to come back to Cambodia a few months later. I was surprised to see that my former students had continued to study Japanese. I didn’t tell them that I was visiting, so they were very surprised to see me, but I was the one who was most surprised. No teacher, no decent tables or chairs, no text books, they were working hard to learn Japanese under those conditions.
The concept that you could make a better future with hard work, is often an illusion if you are living in a developing country with limited chances.
On the other hand, if they had an opportunity, they would try to achieve their goals at any cost, such hungry spirit is something I noticed working with them. It is also important to show them a success story as a guide post for a better and brighter future.
Our mission is to create a global scale service from the remote area, and be a guide post for the local people.
