19 Apr Sacred Dancers of Angkor
The ‘Sacred Dancers of Angkor’ are students of the first rural conservatory in Cambodia performing sacred Khmer dances.
Mrs. Ravynn Karet-Coxen, – the head of Preah Ream Boppha Devi Conservatoire – established the Foundation and named it after her father Nginn Karet, cartographer appointed by King Sihanouk to organize the Service Géographique Khmer in 1953.
The Nginn Karet Foundation for Cambodia is leading the initiative which is committed to helping disadvantaged villagers of Angkor and improving their life expectancy and living standards through their programme on rural development. The population of the 14 villages currently supported by NKFC totals an estimated 12,778 people of 2,334 families representing about 40 per cent of the total population of the Banteay Srey District.
