From a Trainee to a Paid Trainer

The Cambodian Children’s House of Peace – CCHP keeps meeting the needs of the disadvantaged youths; and reaching their objectives. Since the start of the project, CCHP keeps providing educational and vocational training supports to the children and youths who are under our care.

We currently have 10 youths including 5 females. One of our youths, Bon, has now become a paid trainer in motor mechanics. He works for a local NGO where he was trained in motor mechanics before. When he first started a new job there he was watched and tested to see if he is suitable for the job. Then after a 3-month probationary period he was promoted to a full capacity trainer. He now earns 50 US Dollars a month with room and board. His future plan is to start up his own business after gaining enough practical experience from this NGO – CCHP will help facilitate to make sure that his dream is realized.

 

From Trainees to Full-Time Staff

Three of our female youths, Lina, Vanna, and Sokheng, now have become staff members of local enterprises – hotels and restaurant after their completion of vocational training in hospitality, pastry and bakeries. They earn around 100 US Dollars per month which is enough for them to make a living. They now have decided to live on their own in a group house. They are very happy with their current job. Their future dream is to become a senior staff member in the next few years.

 

From a Student of English to a Teacher of English

Among the 10 youths, one of them, Sreyroth, has now become a part-time teacher of English at a private school in the provincial town. She works very hard at the Home to make sure that her dream is realized. She has now become a teacher of English. She majored in English in university. Her friends always admire her for her determination. She is very proud of her hard work in the past. She lives in a group house with other friends. Her goal is to become a professional teacher of English after graduation.

The rest of the youths are still in high school – most of them are in the last grade. They all have set their goals for their future. They study hard every day to make sure that goals are achievable. One of them wants to become a medical doctor and others want to be IT specialists.

On behalf of the youths, once again, we would like to thank you very much for your contribution and commitment to support our project – Friends like you make our project possible.

CHILDREN’S EDUCATION

All the children at the Cambodian Children’s of Peace – CCHP have completely finished their final exams and learned the results, and we are so proud since all of them except one have passed their exams. The one who failed will take another exam next month for the final one which will determine whether she must repeat the year or go to the next grade. She is studying hard to make sure that she will pass it and we strongly believe that she will move ahead. All of them are very proud of themselves and so happy about the exam results. The staff will keep on working hard to ensure that all the children’s goal is achievable.

 

INTERNATIONAL CHILDREN’S DAY

On the first of June which is the International Children’s Day, CCHP’s children and children from other organizations in province of Siem Reap as well as children around the globe celebrated the International Children’s Day, June 1st. We went and joined other children at a local restaurant organized by Angkor Cable TV, a local cable TV company. It is a great opportunity for our children to meet other children and for them to show their talents. We had a great time and enjoyed the performances, ranging from simple skill demonstrations to highly talented skills. We are very grateful to Angkor Cable TV that invited us to the event.

 

DENTAL CHECK-UP

Recently, a charitable organization provided with free dental services for children from varous NGOs here in Siem Reap. With the help from this organization, the children of the Cambodian children’s House of Peace had an opportunity to have their dental checkup at one of the best dental clinics in Siem Reap. As a result of their dental checkup, some of our children have problems with their teeth which need drilling, scaling and polishing their teeth and so on. It is thanks to the organization that provided us with free dental services. Now our children have better dental health and great smiles.

 

A FIELD TRIP

CCHP children had a great time going on a field trip to Preah Vihear temple in Preah Vihear province, one of the most famous temples in Cambodia located in the top of a mountain. The trip was great as the children enjoyed seeing the beautiful views of forests and hills from the top of the mountain. The children took noted of the history of the temple explained by our local tour guide. They raised lots of questions about the temple and took lots of pictures. Thanks to our old friend from New Zealand who sponsored the trip. The children had a great time – they will never forget this time.

Once again, on behalf of the children we would like to thank you very much for your donations and supports – friends like you make our project possible.

Empower families to better care for their children

The team visits the brick factory site and the surrounding community two times per week to follow up the situation of the child labourers, to promote maximum of child care awareness and encourage them to send their children to school on a regular basis in their community.

The children reintegrated back to public school are regularly followed up twice per week, either in at school or in community to make sure that they attend their classes regularly and that they can cope with the school curriculum. The team also provides basic counseling to the families to ensure that they are fully aware of the importance of the education for their children.

The project will provide school supplies and other things that the children need for their education when the new academic year starts in early October.
