Disability in Cambodia

Have questions or resources regarding Khmer Culture? This forum is all about the Kingdom of Cambodia's culture. Khmer language, Cambodian weddings, French influence, Cambodian architecture, Cambodian politics, Khmer customs, etc? This is the place. Living in Cambodia can cause you to experience a whole new level of culture shock, so feel free to talk about all things related to the Khmer people, and their traditions. And if you want something in Khmer script translated into English, you will probably find what you need.

Interesting about the development of Khmer sign language.

PM HE Calls on TV Stations to Set Up Sign Language
02/07/19 12:23
Phnom Penh (FN), July 1 – Cambodian Prime Minister HE once again appealed to the heads of TV stations to set up sign language to enable deaf people to access information through television channels.

The appeal was made on Monday, 1 July, at the meeting with members and staff of Krousar Thmey Foundation, the first Cambodian Foundation helping disadvantaged children.

The premier will observe every channel and call straight to the owner of channel to setup the sign language. He also stressed that he will help cover the cost of setting up the sign language any TV channels that claim losing their profits.

Krousar Tmey Foundation is the first Cambodian Foundation helping disadvantaged children, building a world in which children are empowered to grow into independent and responsible adults.
Krousar Thmey operates three programs – education for deaf or blind children, child welfare, and cultural and artistic development – in 14 Cambodian provinces.

It is worth noting that the sign language committee was formed in 2013 due to the emergence of a Cambodian sign language through various organizations. Including both deaf and hearing members, the committee successfully developed the Khmer sign language and is now responsible for his improvement, adapting textbooks for each grade while circulating a specialized dictionary.
