The KF would like to deeply thanks those unique persons that have given a minimum of 3 months volunteering to support the development of the KF activities.

He is on leave from the Danish Armed forces. Prior to this he spent 15 years conducting UXO- and mineclearance operations all over the world, primarily in Africa and the Middle East, but also in Cambodia from 1997-98, where he worked in the K5 minefield in Bantey Meanchey and in Siem Reap, clearing around the temples of Angkor Wat and Angkor Thom. From 1999-2004 he helped build the Danish Demining Group, a Humanitarian Mine Action organization, which he headed. He was then Project Director for the clearance of the last German World War 2 minefield along the coast of Denmark.

Bo allocated significant amount of time to volunteer and build management and planning capacities of the KF Executive Director. In his opinion the Khmer Foundation is quite unique in its approach to helping children grow and in the vision for a modern humane Cambodian Society with strong roots in the Khmer culture and its traditional values.

In 2014, she joined the Parliamentary Institute in Cambodia (PIC) whose fundamental aim is to support capacity strengthening among Parliamentarians and parliamentary staff and to help the Cambodian Parliament in its aspirations to meet the internationally-recognized standards required of a democratic parliament in the 21st century. Holding the position of External Relations Coordinator (Program Development), Sabrina has built an expertise in project/program development, results-oriented reporting and monitoring & evaluation.

Sabrina is passionate about Khmer culture, language and history. Her involvement with the Khmer Foundation is most important to her as she wants to contribute to the improvement of Cambodian children’s lives. She is thrilled to be part of a team of dedicated board members and to support the management team of the Khmer Foundation.

Back in Canada, Mary acquired academic background in industrial relations, specialized in human resources management and interventions in multicultural settings. For more than 12 years, she has gained an array of knowledge, experience and skills in program management, including financial and human resources, strategic planning, fundraising, M&E, and capacity development by working with high management level in the Canadian government and as Country Manager with international non-profit organizations such as Oxfam-Quebec and PATH based in Phnom Penh City, Cambodia.

In her management capacity, she led a mixed team of national staff and international consultants and volunteers that provides financial and technical support to local partner organizations in strengthening their capacity to deliver effective development initiatives ranging from promoting gender equalities at the family level to protecting migrant rights across borders. To the best of her abilities, Mary hopes to contribute to the goals of Khmer Foundation, especially in fulfilling its mandate to provide Cambodian children with the hope, dream and opportunity of a better life. Her motto: "Where you end up, it's up to you."
