I'm the founder and managing director of OIC, established for the 600,000 Cambodians with communication and swallowing disabilities. We establish speech therapy university courses and jobs for Cambodians, raise awareness, and influence government policy.
How long could you last without talking? In 2015, OIC launched A Day Without Speech, an initiative to raise awareness and funds for children with communication and swallowing disabilities. By giving up speech, you can get children into schools in Cambodia.
I'm a co-founder of WhyDev, an initiative dedicated to getting development right. We provide professional, educational, and support services to individuals, communities and organisations committed to global development. I now sit on WhyDev's board.
Weh is such an example to everyone, he leads with constant discipline and hard work in all his projects. He provides clear mission and vision to his team and also autonomy to bring the best ideas to OIC Cambodia. I learned so much from him and his practices during my placement in OIC. I highly recommend Weh as a team member and leader to any organisation that he wishes to be part of.
I have had the pleasure of working with Weh on the development of OIC Cambodia. Weh is a man with a vision and the dedication, drive and skills to make it happen. He has the charisma to be a natural leader, but also recognises and values the skills of others around him. In this way he has what I can only describe as a collaborative leadership style.
"A small group of thoughtful people could change the world. Indeed, it's the only thing that ever has." This quote of Margaret Mead illustrates perfectly what I think of Weh. I am amazed at Weh's constant commitment, perseverance against adversity and endless energy. There are few people I would recommend so warmly.
