Peterhans Koperberg, founder of the Foundation Cambodja.nu, and initiator of the Bloom Garden Guesthouse, has been active in Cambodia since 2006. He organized journeys and initiated projects to improve the well-being of the local population in various ways. Peterhans wants to do more to make a difference for the Cambodians.
Peterhans: “Living on the basis of confidence might be the most important thing the Cambodians taught me. The country conquered a central place in my heart. It touches me. Cambodians can teach you how to deal with insecurity, freedom, and responsibility. It is country with a turbulent history, but incredibly viable. For me, perhaps the most memorable incident is the commitment of my Cambodian friends when I unfolded my plans. The confidence you receive, the connectedness I felt: for me, this is the essence of life. Cambodia helps me to locate the connection with myself, with what I regard as important and with who I love, in the centre of my life. To live and do business on the basis of connectedness and trust.”
