Hello from Cambodia!

I just wanted to thank you again for your donations and generous support of the work we do here at M’Lop Tapang.

Now more than ever, we appreciate your help.  If you have been to Sihanoukville lately you will know just how much the local area is changing.  Sihanoukville, the once quiet tourist beach town, is transforming fast.  In 2018, there were 297 buildings being constructed.  There are now almost 90 casinos and many more in development.

One of the impacts of all this change in the city is that hundreds of poor families from the countryside are moving to the city to work on local construction projects. Many families bring their children and most live in crowded, makeshift housing camps at the sites will little access to appropriate sanitation, a lack of clean water, and no access to health care, education, or other basic social services.

With your support and your donations our teams will continue to regularly visit these construction sites to ensure that the children living in these places are safe and encouraging them to join education and health programs at M’Lop Tapang. Good news is that since just the beginning of the year we have more than 30 new children from these areas now coming to our Education Center.

Thank you again for your help.

With sincere appreciation,

Roth Chanphalkun (Kun)

Co-Director

Hello from Cambodia!

2018 is quickly coming to an end and we wanted to thank you again for your generosity in the last year in making donations to support the work we do at M’Lop Tapang.

 One of the ways M’Lop Tapang helps to prepare disadvantaged children and you for a better future is by providing education and training programs. In 2018, more than 400 children attended classes at our main Education Center, another 200 at our Community Education Center, and more than 120 youth participated in vocational training programs.

We made a short video recently that I thought you might like to see if you haven’t already. It’s of M’Lop Tapang’s main Education Center.  (The link to the video is at the bottom of the page)

For older youth that may be too old to return to school, our vocational training programs provide an alternative for learning.  18-year old Vanna (name changed for confidentiality) is a recent graduate of our motor repair course:

“I never believed before that I could do something like this, but now I can. If there are upcoming students from M’Lop Tapang’s training program that need to learn and have a place to practice, I would be happy to welcome them at my shop and help to teach them.”

Again, thank you for your support and we wish you, your family, and friends all the best in the upcoming holiday season.

Hello from Cambodia! 

We just wanted to say thank you again for your generosity and donations.  Your support is helping hundreds of disadvantaged Cambodian children and youth get the opportunities they need to build a better future.

18 year old Chenda (name and photo changed for confidentiality) grew up in a poor family. His mother is a beach food vendor and his father works as a construction laborer. The family couldn’t afford to keep sending Chenda to school and he dropped out in Grade 4 to stay home to take care of his younger sister and brothers.

Last year, after one of our Outreach social workers met Chenda and told him about M’Lop Tapang vocational training programs, the young teenager joined the program to learn about motorcycle repair. Chenda recently completed his training and with the assistance of our Jobs Placement Officer has found safe, full-time employment with the Honda Company here in Sihanoukville.

Thank you again for helping young people like Chenda and so many others get a start to a better future.

Wishing you all the best,

Roth Chanphalkun (Kun)

Hello from Sihanoukville,

I wanted to thank you again for your generosity in supporting M’Lop Tapang’s work with vulnerable Cambodian children and youth.

Your donations are helping to make better futures for so many children here, like 10-year old Sreyroth*, one of the newer students in our Special Needs Programs.   Until last year, the young girl who has autism was never enrolled in school as the family was worried that she would have problems with other children, and instead was kept at home all the time. Sreyroth now attend daily classes in our Special Needs Program, the only program of its kind in the city.  There is a link to a very short video at the end of this report about our program that we thought you might enjoy viewing.

Again, thank you from everyone here and as always if you have any questions please just let me know.

Sincerely,

Roth Chanphalkun (Kun)

Co-Director, M'Lop Tapang

Hello from Sihanoukville, Cambodia!

I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you again for your donations and support.  With your help we are able to continue to provide services to thousands of vulnerable children and youth living in the local area.

Your generosity has helped young people like Rith*, who comes from a poor family and had to drop out of school at a young age.  Now 20 years old, after recently completing a cooking course in our vocational training program he now has steady employment and the skills needed for a better future.  You can read more of his story here: http://mloptapang.org/vocational-training-leads-to-employment-and-a-better-future/

Again, thank you for your support and encouragement.  Together we are helping to helping children and youth from disadvantaged background build foundations for a better future.

Sincerely,
