Phea Dysco

Dysco is a 20-year old student studying Philosophy and Law in the Battambang Province, a rural area in northwest Cambodia. In addition to working on two degrees, he spends five days a week as an activist focused on preventing violence against women and promoting government transparency. He is a volunteer lead organizer for Transparency International in the province; having built a team of 10 field organizers that he oversees for campaign mobilization. Furthermore, Dysco is active in the ICT community in Cambodia as a BarCamp Leader in the province, which has been implemented by USAID-funded Development Innovations. Highly energetic and receiving several public speaking awards, Dysco is focused on getting real on-the-ground experience to improve himself and the community around him. One criticism by MoWA during the last nomination of activists, was there were no men activist awarded and that it was important to consider the involvement of men in the project. Awarding Dysco helps to ensure gender balance and perspective for the second round. Additionally, as Dysco is based in and working from a rural province, this could help to further the development of a rural-focused App.
