THE SSC STORY THUS FAR
1992 – 1993 New beginnings
In 1992 the Khmer Buddhist Society, founded by Cambodian-American social workers, began training village volunteers in social services skills. The volunteers then provided direct social services to communities. The initial training (supported by USAID/PACT) taught 130 community leaders from eleven provinces. A relationship quickly formed with the Ministry of Social Affairs and in November 1992 the group opened the Kampong Speu Training Center in a building provided by the Ministry. During the next two years, 200 trainees graduated through the five-month intensive program.
