ProCEEd Team Changes


In early May 2016, Thipphaphone Channavong joined the ProCEED team as a junior translator. She is replacing Chanthala Koukeomanivong, the project's regular translator and national advisor, who is on maternal leave. For four months from May until August 2016, Thipphaphone will translate a variety of materials and provide oral translations for ProCEED. She worked as an intern feature reporter at Vientiane Times Newspaper and was also a volunteer translator for the Summer Film Academy organized by ProCEED in October 2015.


At the same time, there was another staff change in the Khammouane Province, where development advisor Jonas Ewert recruited a new assistant who supports him in his work with the Provincial Office of Natural Resources and Environment (PONRE).

His assistant Phonevisay Silivong likes working with rural communities in regard with environmental education and the mass media. He holds a bachelor degree in Environmental Science and Art of English from the University of Laos (NUoL). Phonevisay gained working experience at the Water Resources Information Centre of MoNRE and on land management and development in Savannakhet Province.
