The NKFC is a big family between the staff of all programs, the students at the Conservatoire and at the schools NKFC built, as well as with local Authorities and the 2769 families in the 14 remote villages in the shadow of UNESCO Heritage Site of Angkor in Banteay Srey. Without the preliminary work of rural development since 1999, of empowering the villagers to a sustainable livelihood and to trust the Conservatoire, we would not have reached such success.
