Hong Da

On-Site Residential Project Manager

I have been working as a rice farmer and raising farm animals before I started working at The Red Road Foundation in 2015. I’ve always had the dream of meeting foreign people and speaking English. Since I started here, I have been able to accomplish that. I love meeting our volunteers from all over the world each week and working with them to make a difference in my community. Another reason why I work at The Red Road is that I understand that we play an important role in Cambodia in order to help the lives of children without opportunity, who are at risk of disease, living in poverty and being unable to afford medical help. 

Yorn Sreypov

Educational Director, English Teacher

In my decision to teach at The Red Road Foundation, I have several objectives. First of all, I want to share my knowledge and experiences with the next generation of children. In fact, I understand that sharing knowledge is the most important factor in improving the ability and skills of children. I am able to use my influence to help with motivating their willingness to study hard. This is very important in Cambodia, as after a generation of war, their parents have learned that survival is the main focus of life and have not yet been exposed to the benefits and opportunities that education brings. It is my passion to share knowledge and experiences that they may utilize to bring healing and education into our rural community.

Nathan is passionate about spending time at a Buddhist monastery which leads him to learn more about himself and the journey we are all on together, he shares this with our students, staff and volunteers, reminding us to have Perspective in daily affairs. Our Red Road kids adore Nathan and his willingness to play no matter how hot the sun is.

Hayley Martin

Production

Hayley graduated from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga with a BFA in Photography and Media Arts. Since then she’s worked with companies, nonprofits and ministries to tell truth that will inspire people to action. She’s always had a fervor for the arts and is fascinated by how something can be formed from nothing by someone’s hand. She believes that one of the most underrated art forms to see this in action is videography. A camera is often thought of as “unforgiving”, but there’s beauty in that vulnerability that draws us all together! Though everyone has a story to tell, Hayley has always enjoyed her work with nonprofits the most. After graduating she found herself working at a Christian summer camp for kids where she discovered her passion for helping kids lay down their spirit of fear and take up a spirit of adventure and creativity.
