Our aim at Salariin Kampuchea is to provide high quality, free-of-charge, non-formal education to children and youth from disadvantaged families in Siem Reap. The quality of education we supply inspires youth and their families to follow their own dreams and enhance their standard of living. We supply young adults in Siem Reap with English language and computer literacy skills, reading improvement as well as a life skill program to help them enter the job market in Cambodia successfully.
There are 15 new students enrolled in our English program. In total there are 198 students attending in our schools. In February, we conducted and celebrated a certificate party where 92 students from the English program received their Certificates from the Let’s Go 3, Let’s Go 6 and Pre-intermediate classes.
Life skill project
As in February we celebrated a certificate party, 18 former life skill students received their certificates. We organized a field trip for our life skill students in March. Our life skill students visited our partner hotel, Soria Moria Boutique Hotel to see different jobs in a real work situation. The hotel staff were introduced to the students and then they were shown different departments. The students asked lots of questions. Furthermore, as we cooperate with Youth Employment Service Centre (YES) in May our life skill students visited their center for job vacancy and job interview practice.
In the certificate party, there were 53 former computer students received their certificate. Recently there are 8 computer classes with 66 students attending in our program. One of our computer students became a computer teacher and youth leader with an organization in Siem Reap.
In the daily library hours, our librarians conducted different activities with external students and internal students. Our librarians did traffic lessons, matched label story comprehension, arranged group reading as well as supported individual weaker students from English classes and computer classes. They also conducted lending books to the students.
Our football students participated in the Globalteer Siem Reap Junior Soccer League. As a result, our football teams, the U18’s were placed in number two and the U14’s placed number one in their division of the league. They are very proud of their teams for the success. One of our football students became a football coach with Globalteer organization. Furthermore, by supporting from Globalteer our football students were trained twice a month. To celebrate the king’s birthday, Sihamoni Globalteer Organization organized a tournament between Siem Reap football teams and Poipet teams. Luckily, there were six of our students selected to attend in the tournament.
In the next three months, we would like to conduct a Spelling Bee competition program for English students. We also plan to visit two hotels and two vocational training centers in Siem Reap for the life skill students. They will be able to see different jobs in a real work situation. We also plan to make an interview practice and arrange final test for current life skill students.
We would like to thank all donors who supported us though GlobalGiving. With the help of our partners at GlobalGiving and you, we hope to keep building on this and moving forward with our non-formal education programme.
