Building Relationships

Some of our students have very turbulent home lives and often (for many varying reasons, often outside of their families control) do not get enough attention at home. One of our favourite things about the centre is the closeness of the staff to their students (something that has been the case since the beginning). All the members of our team have been working here for many years, and over that time have developed strong relationships between each other and the children. While remaining completely professional the staff have ensured the students know they are in a safe place and have people in which they can confide. This closeness helps to provide much needed emotional support for our students, building their confidence and providing them with a sense of security.

Crafting

We try to spend a lot of time doing craft activities at the center. It gives the children a chance to use their imaginations and creativity, as well as improving their fine motor skills. They always love it! Supplies in Cambodia (beyond the basics) are harder to find so we often rely on the generosity of others who bring/send things for us to use from home. We have been very lucky this year and had some wonderful art and craft extras gifted to us, so we have had lots of fun!

Christmas Party and New Year Trip

After finally managing to clear our playground we held our annual Christmas party. We played lots of games and the children put on 3 different dances, all of which were fantastic. Kolab, with the help of the children, had once again created some incredible decorations so the center looked great! We were kindly donated two bikes which we decided to give away in the raffle, resulting in lots of very excited children! As always our students were fantastic, well behaved and helpful and all left with big grins on their faces.

The staff were given a few (well deserved) days off between Christmas and New Year to recharge their batteries. We went on a day trip together down the coast as a bonus for all their hard work. It was lovely to have some time together! We are back into the swing of it now and over the coming few weeks we hope to extend our garden areas and finish painting the playground. Bring on 2019!
