Classes Open at Epic Arts!

Students Back to School
Students Back to School

Students are back in classrooms and we’re continuing to support families of children with disabilities through this difficult year.

 Since April the Education, Social Work and Projects Team have been working with families in new ways to ensure they’re supported, teaching at children at home, spending more time with parents and supporting families with emergency supplies for covid and the recent flash flooding here in Cambodia.

 Covid-19 cases in Cambodia have remained low, under 300 cases with 0 deaths, because of this the Royal Government of Cambodia allowed the reopening of schools recently and our students came back to the classroom in October!

This was an exciting time for our students to come back to their routine, see their classmates and allowed parents to get back to a ‘new normal’

We’re working hard to ensure the safety of students, classes are small and we have additional hygiene routines in place for students and teachers. Our teachers have developed new lessons around hygiene to make sure our students remember to stay safe outside of the classroom

Wishing all of our friends and supporters around the world good health and safety!

Please consider donating again to support our work helping the vulnerable communities of Kampot

Thank you,

The Epic Arts Team

Thank You for Your Support

We’d like to announce that we are closing this funding project as the Inclusive Arts Course is currently on a hiatus due to Covid-19 and other factors, we’re planning to start the course again with a fresh round of students in mid-2021.

Preparation is underway and we’ll be back in 2021 with a refreshed curriculum for young people with and without disabilities to experience the arts, build self esteem and build skills that will help them lead independent lives.

 Thank you to all our wonderful donors who’ve made the Inclusive Arts Course possible over the last few years.

Look out for our next funding projects or check out our other projects.

 Special thanks to our recurring donors, your monthly donations will be redirected to our Inclusive Education Programme which covers our Inclusive Arts Course and our Special Education Projects.

Epic Arts Surviving Covid-19

Family Receives Supplies
Family Receives Supplies

Over the past few months Epic Arts has been focused on protecting the most vulnerable and like the rest of the world we’ve had to reorganize to ensure our survival.

Covid-19 cases in Cambodia have remained low and the government have taken steps to limit community transmission. The bigger challenge our communities face at the moment is economic, with many people reporting losing income and jobs.

In April GlobalGiving made the decision to change donations from ‘restricted’ to ‘unrestricted’ this allowed us to use unspent donations to help us survive throughout the uncertainty of the pandemic.

We’d like to update you on what’s changed at Epic Arts since you heard from us last and how your donations have helped us survive this uncertain time.

Supporting the vulnerable

We're in this together, that's why we're supporting some of the most vulnerable children with disabilities and their families in Kampot, with emergency food and hygiene supplies. Since March we’ve supplied over 100 people and children with disabilities with emergency covid relief, including food parcels, accessible information and hygiene supplies.

Education

In late March our classrooms were closed under the Ministry of Education's decree to close all schools and vocational training centres in Cambodia. Since then our Teachers and Social Worker have been hard at work visiting families every week to deliver home school sessions and to provide support to families being impacted by the social challenges caused by Covid-19.

In the last week has been the government has announced that schools will be allowed to open again soon. We hope that we’ll be greeting our students into our classrooms in the very near future.

Wishing all of our friends and supporters around the world good health and safety!
