Sawin cooperate to found DODSAP with demobilized soldiers, his friends from universities and the poor who were willing to share their critical thoughts to run this NGO. Sawin was voted to be the administrative executive to make and manage all types of admin documents especially the petitions and other confidences for the organization. He was so active to prepare and share his best for training the active members in the organization. In addition, he participated in writing the project proposals for DODSAP focusing on weaving skills and household businesses. He joined in the discussion with the International Consultant Chro Kosona who is well-known the expert in preparing documents. The project proposals were a little difficult because we needed to rush conducting the surveys at the direct areas to submit to East West institute.

The board members and him were preparing a group discussion and writing reports at Mr. Chhay Vina’s house for full-night and day. They worked overnight to succeed proposals on deadlines just one day remained later for submitting the project proposal to East West Institute. The participants in joining in the writing proposal were Mr. Pray Chhien, Mr. Chhay Vinna, Mr. Oeur Sawin, Mr. Chhneang Hour, Mr. Kim Sokhim, Mr. Sang Sam Oun, Mr. Yang Sovannara, Mr. Hom Sarath, Mr. Nou Kosal, Mr. Keo Savoeun, Mr. Un Sreng and Ms. Ngel Siye. They were given the samples of the project proposal by Mr. Chrov Kosona. The time went quickly to reach the deadline day to submit the project proposal to the East-West Institute. The DODSAP representative and Consultant were invited by the EWI to represent and respond various questions made by the EWI before they it was to be approved the total funds as mentioned in the project proposals.

However, for daily activities, Sawin was training staff members how to prepare and report after they accomplished their work performances because it was accurate to push all of the active members to have full and confidential competencies in performing their jobs. Mr. Chhay Vinna also trained the methodologies to run a microfinance project which one should be selected to open. Mr. Vinna used his experiences of microfinance to train the ways they could use funds to make funds. It was very good for the targeted people to take loans from DODSAP. For instance, Mr. Pray Chhiean, the director, also trained about the Christian project which one of the most attractive performances could bring the foreigner guests to join in the organization activities, for meditating and learn the spirit life of the peaceful thoughts and happiness for all. He guided the ways to sing God songs to call out the peace and good luck for them. Sawin joined in chanting and praying God peacefully.

For communication with the public and the private or international and national partners were always used English as a mechanism. Saw was translating and interpreting alternatively with Yang Sovannara during workshops and official documents to donors especially when the foreign guests were invited to join in praying God. Some foreign guests could speak Khmer and understand Khmer well that was less used English. After director and board members set the statute and other relevant documents, those were required to translate into English to represent with the donors in the purpose of cooperative supports. To succeed the activities, Sawin with the colleagues to communicate with the local authorities for smooth and cooperative supports to alleviate our works at the directly targeted areas gaining good moods. The communication is very important for this organization to link its works with related parties.

It was not enough if only visiting the targeted people, so Sawin with his colleagues started to design questionnaires to conduct the data collections in Sangkat Prey Sar and neighbouring Sangkats. They did want to know the real rooted problems that the targeted people concerned much and what could be alert them to pay their attentions in DODSAP’s missions and vision to give them back the best solutions by the organization officers. DODSAP took some of its charity gifts to distribute to the local poor people led by Mr. Sang Sam Oun with the organization officers Mr. Lao Sarath (now studies and works in Canada), Mr. Chhneang Hour (now lives and works in Batheay district), Mr. Nou Kosal, Mr. Keo Savoeun and Mr. Un Sreng. They also counseled with the villagers of what they urgently required to help.

Another important for him was to set the agendas and schedules to arrange appointments with the director for missions with international and internal non-government organizations to enrich more images for DODSAP and fundraising purposes as well. They went to contact WorldVision and other reliefs.

Succeeding missions and vision was also required Sawin to make daily meetings to ensure the action plans gradually progress with quality by training what extracted from other sources and to weekly report activities and action plans and presenting to the Board of Directors. Mr. Oeur Sawin attended in the conference at Cambodiana Hotel held by Comfrel with the local non-government organizations objecting on the empowerment of the local women and children in each target areas. During this conference, Sawin raised questions about the past experiences and recent issues of DODSAP conducting to be discussed in the conference were taking for a half-day period.

Based on the recent issues that the local poor children lacked of the educational assistances, so the organization opened English Training Courses in the evening class for them in the head office in Sangkat Prey Sar. They were trained and taught by Mr. Sang Sam Ol with Mr. Pray Chhiean. These courses provide the poor children with the Language learning.

In the administration affairs, Sawin was preparing official documents, identity cards and relevant documents for the active members. He helped in setting up the data collection survey with BOD members to be conducted with villagers in Sangkat Prey Sar and neighbouring Sangkats. He published posters, printed lists and activity photos to post on the notice board at the head office. Mr. Chhiean found out some useful books for the organization especially the spiritual and admin documents.

Moreover, he made daily meetings to ensure the action plans gradually progressing with quality. He set up the official groups to solve and facilitate the problems for people the target areas. The main officials named Mr Prey Chhiean (director), Mr Chhay Vinna (Executive Director), Mr Hour, Kim Sokhim, Oeur Sawin, Yang Sovannara, Hom Sarath, Ms Sokha, Mr Saing Sam Oun, Mr Sreng, Ms Ngel Siye and officials were arranged to cooperate with relevant sides to run the organization.

Recently, DODSAP is running the Christian projects in the Prey Speu village, Sangkat Prey Sar, Khan Dangkor, Phnom Penh led by Mr. Pray Chhiean. Some of our founders are busy in their personal businesses and works that could not be having them in this organization.

I am very pleased to certify that Mr. Oeur Sawin has worked in the Christina’s Language Workshop for over 2 years until CLW closed on March 15, 2005.

During his work here, he has proved himself to be an honest, trustworthy, responsible and hardworking person. He always works the fullest to his best knowledge and he is particularly excellent with detailed work. He is not a person of many words but has always been a reliable executor of tasks assigned to him. His language skills with Khmer and English are quite good which enables him to work with our translator’s very smoothly. Actually, he has been practicing translation himself over the years and trying to improve himself. I believe that once he gets familiar with the topic used at the workplace, he can no doubt shoulder some translation responsibilities for the organization. Also, he is highly skillful with computer.

Mr. Oeur Sawin is an easy-going person and works very well in a team. He is polite and respectful to our clients and is friendly and supportive to his co-workers. He is eager to upgrade himself and is willing to take advice from others.

I have no hesitation to recommend him to any organization, which I believe will be benefited from his loyal service since the qualities he has are the most valuable ones among all.

Yours sincerely,
