director at soksan international school
MC Cooper has been involved in the Cambodian Kids Foundation (CKF) in one way or another since its first beginnings. MC’s start in life was tough, brought up in a violent family and growing up in the slums, he has been through more in his life than anyone should ever have to. Introduced to CKF and the Cooper family through a friend living in the slums, MC was asked to join CKF and teach sport and dance in the Foundation’s first school.
"One of his goals is to make sure that all students at SIS have the opportunity to develop as he has"
Since then, MC has worked in many different roles for CKF and he is now pivotal in continuing the development of Soksan International School (SIS) and the future of the students that attend. MC speaks passionately about how CKF has changed his life and given him many opportunities to grow as a person. He has had his eyes opened to the world and exposed him to a wide range of people, but the most important thing to him is that the Cambodian Kids Foundation has given him a family and a home, something he has really never had!
One of his goals is to make sure that all students at SIS have the opportunity to develop as he has, and over 2019 he will be working closely with the staff in Soksan International School and CKF volunteers to ensure this happens.
