It was her first ever job. At first, she faced many difficulties in understanding the job and carrying out her work.“I found it so hard at first to ask questions, write and report.

citizen-journalists-trained-to-write-and-share-information-for-public-good   The fierce summer heat did not prevent the group of 28 young Cambodians in attending a two-day citizen journalism training organized by the Cambodian Center for Independent Media (CCIM) with financial support from UNESCO Bangkok.  Sitting at the right corner of a U-shaped training room, a young, well-educated and committed Cheang Chamroeun, who is a high school teacher, was challenging a trainer from CCIM. This is the second time Chamroeun attended the training for CJs. For Chamroeun, his second time was far different from the first time simply because he has many experiences...

Ruined by poverty, Vansuy could only finish primary school. The conscience of the man with less education, however, is brilliant. The willingness for environmental conservation and community common interests has earned Vansuy a great deal of respect. “My motivation to protect the environment existed several years ago.

Media Forum on Comparison between Press Law and Draft Law on Access to Information

With the support of UNESCO Cambodia, the Cambodian Center for Independent Media (CCIM) is pleased to announce the holding of Media Forum on April 26, 2017 from 8:00 AM to 12: 00 PM at Sunway Hotel in Phnom Penh. The main goal of the forum is to discuss and compare the Press Law 1995 and the draft law on Access to Information. This forum will be presided over by His Excellency Khieu Kanharith, Minister of Information. While the forum is open to the public, CCIM believes this media forum will be much of interests to the  journalists, media institutions, political parties and relevant private and public institutions. As Press Law 1995 and draft law on Access to Information may have overlapping and inconsistent clauses, CCIM strongly hopes that the discussions will contribute significantly to improving the draft law on Access to Information to serve the public interests.
