Khmer Rouge history app launched in Phnom Penh

Rei Foundation had the privilege of attending the launch of the Khmer Rouge History application in Phnom Penh, Cambodia on 25 July 2017. This application was developed by Bophana Audiovisual Resource Center and funded by the European Union and Rei Foundation Limited. The project has been selected as a civil parties' reparations project by the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia (ECCC) and has been made possible with the cooperation of the Documentation Center of Cambodia, Ministry of Education, Ministry of Culture and UNOPS.
Containing accurate and standardised information validated by Cambodian experts, this application aims to educate youth on Khmer Rouge history, raise awareness about justice, human right and peace, and foster intergenerational dialogue.

The application has already received favourable coverage in the three major English-language newspapers in Cambodia: The Cambodia Daily, The Phnom Penh Post and The Khmer Times.
