O motorista de tuk-tuk que construiu uma escola no Camboja

Muito provavelmente você já ouviu falar sobre a guerra civil que ocorreu no Camboja há 40 anos atrás, quando o Khmer vermelho assumiu o controle do país e durante 4 anos massacrou os cambojanos, resultando na morte de cerca de 2 milhões de pessoas, por tortura, fome ou doenças. A loucura de Pol Pot (líder do Khmer Vermelho), tinha como ideal criar um regime “comunista”, baseado no trabalho agrário. Então do dia para a noite as ruas de Pnhom Phen, maior cidade do país, foram esvaziadas e as pessoas enviadas às áreas rurais para trabalhar em campos de concentração. As famílias eram separadas e as crianças muitas vezes eram assassinadas primeiro, para evitar vinganças no futuro. Um cenário de horror inimaginável, que deixou feridas profundas em vários setores do país, um deles foi a educação.IMG_9345

O Khmer Vermelho e a Educação no Camboja.

Entre 1975 e 1979 (período do regime do khmer vermelho) as escolas do Camboja foram transformadas em prisões ou destruídas, uma vez que um dos maiores alvos do regime de Pol Pot eram os intelectuais, ou qualquer pessoa que ele pensava que pudesse comprometer ou ameaçar seus planos. Assim todos que tinham algum nível de escolaridade foram assassinados, professores, advogados, médicos, pessoas que falavam outros idiomas, até mesmo os que não tinham nível superior. Isso causou um dano imenso na estrutura educacional do país. escola2 copy

Mas não pense que esse texto é só mais um que vai falar da triste história Cambojana.

Quero mais, quero que você se inspire como eu me inspirei durante esse viagem. Por isso preciso te contar a história do Broney.

Broney: Uma história inspiradora.

broney 1 O que descobri durante minha viagem ao Camboja é que o povo cambojano, apesar de lembrar com tristeza seu passado, não sai de casa sem estampar um belo sorriso no rosto, não mede esforços para reerguer o seu país e esse post é justamente sobre isso.

 Este é o Broney, ele vive em Siem Reap, a cidade mais visitada do Camboja, lar do famoso Angkor Wat (considerada a maior construção religiosa do mundo). Esse jovem Cambojano de 24 anos é motorista de tuk-tuk, uma profissão muito comum por lá. Conheci o Broney na noite do meu aniversário quando estava voltando para o hostel, depois das comemorações.

Parei para pedir informações e ele prontamente se ofereceu para me levar de volta ao hotel, eu disse que não tinha dinheiro, minha carteira tinha ficado na bolsa de uma amiga, mas ele insistiu e não quis me cobrar. O sensor de perigo já acendeu, pensei: como é possível, um motorista não cobrar pela corrida, mas felizmente aceitei. No caminho ele foi me contando um pouco da sua história.

 Ele me disse que tinha construído uma escola em sua casa, pois as crianças da vila onde vivia, não tinham nenhum lugar onde podiam estudar inglês. Eu pensei ter entendido errado, mas era aquilo mesmo. Ele tinha feito com a ajuda de algumas das crianças e outros amigos uma escola de inglês nos fundos de sua casa. Ele ainda me convidou no dia seguinte para ir lá conhecer e trocar uma ideia com a molecada. Claro que aceitei.

Visitando o Lago Tonle Sap

 

Nunca vi uma escola com crianças tão atentas à aula, mesmo em condições tão simples, todas davam boa noite ao professor antes de começar a aula, um exemplo de comportamento. Alguns mais tímidos, outros mais sem vergonha, todos queriam saber sobre o Brasil, sobre o futebol, queriam me contar o que gostavam de fazer e de comer, com aquela alegria que só uma criança pode ter. Naquele momento eu entendi que não precisamos de muito para mudar a realidade de onde vivemos ou das pessoas que nos cercam, basta vontade, o Broney me ensinou isso.

O seu cansaço era perceptível pois além de se dedicar muito à sua escola, ainda tinha que trabalhar de motorista, durante a madrugada, as vezes também durante o dia e dar aulas em outras escolas. Quando perguntei que horas ele dormia, já que minhas contas não batiam, ele me disse que dormia enquanto esperava seus passageiros terminarem os passeios, mas mesmo assim estava satisfeito sabia que estava cumprindo um papel importante na vida de muitos.

Não pense que o trabalho dele está terminado, atualmente ele está mudando sua escola para outro local para melhorar a estrutura. Seus planos ainda incluem comprar novos livros, atender mais crianças, ter mais professores e o mais importante de tudo: continuar mostrando a seus alunos a importância de estudar e o quanto isso pode melhorar a vida deles.

Fazendo mais carteiras para acomodar os novos alunos.
Fazendo mais carteiras quando o numero de alunos aumentou

 

A melhor coisa numa viagem é quando você não viaja apenas nos lugares, mas também viaja nas pessoas. Entende que o mundo é completo de muitas realidades que não são a sua, mas que através delas você pode aprender muito, ajudar um pouco, se inspirar e fazer a sua parte para melhorar o que está ao seu alcance. Eu nunca imaginei que essa viagem pudesse me mudar tanto, eu consegui aprender muito com um desconhecido que hoje eu tenho a alegria de chamar de amigo.

Foi com essa vista sensacional do avião que eu sai do Camboja, depois do Broney ter feito questão de levar eu e os meus amigos no aeroporto. Nesse momento eu tive a certeza que o que eu tinha aprendido lá jamais seria esquecido, foram conexões que vão ficar comigo pro resto da minha vida.

Se estiver planejando visitar Siem Reap e quiser um ótimo motorista para fazer os passeios, ou se quiser conhecer uma das escolas mais legais que já vi, basta entrar em contato conosco, teremos grande prazer de compartilhar o contato do Broney e ele terá um grande prazer em levar vocês para conhecer as melhores atrações da cidade e seu centro de ensino.

Conta para gente o que rolou durante sua viagem que te mudou pra sempre.
