In 1992, the venerable Maha Ghosananda, a Buddhist monk living in a refugee camp on the Thai-Cambodian border, organised a “Walk for Peace” which became an annual event from 1999 onwards. The walk passes through different rural areas of Cambodia and attracts over 100 participants comprised of Buddhist monks, nuns and laypeople from across Cambodia and abroad. The walk incorporates education to villagers and in schools on living in harmony with people and the environment. Ms Oddom Vansyvorn, a lay disciple of the late Maha, has participated in every walk and now organises them voluntarily each year. During the remainder of the year Syvorn organises monks and nuns to provide non-violence training to prisoners in Cambodia’s jails. The Broadley Trust is providing financial support to allow Syvorn to continue her work, including the writing of an autobiography.
