In 2019, After 5 years of running ONYX and training our partners and staff in facilitation and lesson design, we are producing a curriculum, as requested by partners, colleagues, and students. We are in the process of phasing out 2 DOVE satellites and encouraging a more grassroots approach by training ONYX alumni to run the ONYX program in their contexts.

Everyone was excited to get back to school after staying home and studying online for several months when COVID initially appeared in Cambodia in February of 2020. After not meeting one another for many months the students missed each other and wanted to continue studying in person at YESIC. As COVID seemed to quiet down after the initial outbreak, seeing only a few new cases, the government allowed all public and private schools in Cambodia to start up again. They were prepared and ready to start everything again at a moment’s notice. Initially, they began with a few classes and opened a few clubs for two weeks to see how things would go, and then planned to open all classes and clubs if COVID remained under control.

To be safe, they limited the number of students for each class and club and allowed a maximum of 15 people per class/group. They kept the higher-level English classes going and critical clubs but did not start the lower priority clubs and classes. This would make it easy for them to enforce social distancing and COVID protocol. As the COVID situation became less critical, they opened all English classes and growth groups officially. Everything seemed to be going well.

“I could hear the laughter and the bantering of a hundred students again at YESIC, as the students were excited to be back and hangout with their friends again.”
