Pagna Nhim

(PCEF Director)

Pagna is the co-founder and Director of PCEF. A former monk, he established the first PCEF School under a house in the Kampong phluk village, with his friend Soven. Pagna dedicated his life to provide life-changing education to better the lives of underprivileged children in his community.

Due to pagna's hard work, and the generous support from friends and donors worldwide, PCEF has continued to grow and prosper. PCEF expanded our programs to the rural area at pagna's home village, where we now have another free school program.

. Pagna is always thinking of ways to help those in need and is currently working on an elderly care program. Click here to see more about pagna's background.
