These events and activities are Khmer New Year, and Handwashing. These activities benefit and influent to our students themselves. So, pleased read more how the events arranged, conducted and influenced to our people in the community where we work with.                            

Khmer New Year Celebration 

Every year, we organize and celebrate Khmer New Year Party and in the party celebration, we have conducted lots of games, activities and challenges. For example, this year we had Khmer traditional games, lucky draw and dance, songs competition, and show performance competition.

How we do it?

We set up committees and each committee managed and leaded their team members who play games, who sing the songs, who conduct the show.

First, after announcing to the schedule and committees, we played Khmer traditional games. For example, Throw the scarf, Heat Pot, Eat Water Melon…etc. After traditional games played, we ended the games stages, then we invited students who are candidates to join the competition for sing the songs, and show performance competition to prepare themselves.

Secondly, we asked singers competition first and there are a few singers joined. After song competition group finished, we continued with the show performance group.

Finally, the committees give score for both groups, song and show group. As the result, each group has winners and we offer the gifts to the winners. Everyone was really happy and cheerful. In additional, we learnt that our students know how to prepare themselves, take responsibility, creatives and explore their talents before the show. It is unbelievable that we never know they can sing songs, and they can lead their team member, communicate and collaborate each other to perform the show very well.

Sihak, one of our students expresses his feeling about Khmer New Year Party and the show he did during the party. “Hello, my name is Sihak. I am 11 years old. I am a student studying at Salariin Kampuchea school. I want to tell you all about my feeling when I participated in playing the show called Tom Teav as comedy show. When I started to learn about the show at first time, I feel very nervous a little bit but I still tried to learn, practice, show with my body gesture with my friends better. I also discussed with my team strictly in order to avoid any mistakes. I want to tell you that before I cannot do a show even if my gestures and words but when I started to learn and join in a show team, I know how to show some dramas or a comedy with my proper body language or gestures. For example, I can perform a show called Tom Teav, one of Khmer literature story on the stage during the show performance competition for Khmer New Year party. I feel nervous and excited, however, I committed myself. Finally, I can do it with my team very well and I got awards for my show and talent. Thanks my, school, teacher and friends that work together and for good cooperation till we win the show”.

Handwashing

In order to improve basic hygiene of our small kids, our teachers have conducted handwashing for our students for the last few months.

Our teachers taught them in class how we wash hands, when we have to wash hands and why we wash our hands. This topic was integrated into our school curriculum for children.

After the lesson, our students were assessed how they realize and understand the topic. In addition, we asked our students to practice at school after their classes outside.

As the result, students are aware of handwashing after they leave the toilet and before eating. They really enjoy the handwashing activities when they apply it as you can see in the pictures.

 In the next three months, we will make floor tiles for 5 classrooms, decorate fence and arrange parent meeting for a community assessment to find impacts we have done so far.

We would like to thanks everyone who supported us through GlobalGiving with your hard-earning money. Width your help we hope to continue and build upon the success of our non-formal education program.

We wish you happy New Year, every success, happiness and enjoy it with your family and friends!

Warmest regards, 

The Salariin Kampuchea Team

Every year, our school conducts different workshops to the community, students and staff in order to develop and improve capacity, knowledge, skills and sharing experiences among our stakeholders. These workshops are traffic workshop, and First Aid Training. These workshops benefit and influent to the community and our school itself. So pleased read more how the workshops conducted and influenced to our people in the community where we work with.                                           

Traffic law workshop

After our communication with Siem Reap Police Commissionaire, they agreed to offer the workshop about traffic law, traffic signs and traffic fines to our community. The police expert comes and shares the workshop. There are over 200 participants in the workshop. These include parents, students and teachers at our school, Salariin Kampuchea organization. .

During the workshop, firstly the police officer presented generally the slides about traffic accidents, case study, penalty, traffic law and signs in Cambodia to the participants. The participants felt really scared and upset when they saw the accident pictures shown in the presentation. Next the police expert showed the reasons why accidents happened. The most of the reasons are fast driving over speed limited; don’t respect the traffic law, and drunk driving. In the figures shown that in average 10 people died every day in traffic accident in Cambodia.

Secondly, he shortly presented about the traffic signs in Cambodia. These included accident signs, warning signs, direction and information signs, turn left, right, single entry, odd and even signs as well as traffic light signs for example, red light is for stop, yellow is for speed reduction and green light is for travelling.

In additional, the police expert explains about the penalty and fine when people do not respect the law and commit against the law. For example, a motorbike driver drives without helmet; drive faster than speed limited, what fine they will get and how much they have to pay the fine to the police.

Finally, there are a lot of questions asked from participants to the police officer. First question was how many meters we could use right or left light of our motorbike/car before the destination arrive? Second question was if a driver don’t wear a helmet how much fine they would get? Etc.

To sum up, this workshop was important for our people, our community, students, teachers and parents. They learnt and again a lot knowledge and experiences from the workshop. They really enjoyed the workshop and they would like to have the workshop again in the future. It is also helpful to reduce traffic accidents and avoid the accidents because they realize and they learnt. Below is the feeling of our staff who expressed her understanding.

Chandy, one of our staff expresses her feeling about traffic law workshop. “Hello, my name is Chandy. I am an accountant and receptionist at Salariin Kampuchea Organization. I learnt a lot from the traffic workshop. I learn how to drive properly, I realize about the punishment/fine when I drive again the signs or don’t respect the law. I feel really scared when I saw the pictures of traffic accidents. For me, I feel that it is useful for our people to learn from the workshop in order to avoid the accidents. I think other communities and children could have this workshop, too”.

First Aid Training workshop

In order to improve First Aid understanding and ability of our teachers and staff who work with children and adults, our school invited our volunteers who experienced and qualified about First Aid to share among our team members. It was divided into three sessions separately. One session lasted for one hour and half.

Firstly, our volunteer presented about general rules of First Aid focusing on CPR, DRABC and chocking. She showed the slides and explained each topic based on theory as well as the rules. After that she applied and practice on CPR, how to serve victim, how to put hands on chest and make moment for CPR, listen people breath and make airway of victim and how to keep the victim safe after they are conscious.

Furthermore, we also practiced on chocking one by one among our team members who join the training. When we help a victim when he/she got a chock, what we can do to help the victims when we see people get a chocking so she asked us to practice with one another. After the slide presentation, we start to practice; we use and press our hands softly under chest of the victim and then hold them and pull out our hand on their chest. It is a very good example to learn and practice. We all really enjoy the training with a lot of fun.

David, one of our staff expresses his feeling about First Aid Training workshop. “Hello, I am David. I am IT and English teacher at Salariin Kampuchea Organization. I think it is good to know how to help people weather who get injures. I got First Aid training with a volunteer. I feel it is most important helping a victim before sending them to a hospital. I highly recommend to everyone should have First Aid knowledge in our daily life”.

In the next three months, we will celebrate Khmer New Year Party at our school, conduct a Child Protection training to teachers and staff and hand washing activities.

We would like to thanks everyone who supported us through GlobalGiving with your hard earning money. Width your help we hope to continue and build upon the success of our non-formal education program.

We wish you happy New Year, every success, happiness and enjoy it with your family and friends!

Pupils and community see the plastic show
Pupils and community see the plastic show

Every year, human beings used million tons of plastic around the world and this affects to climate change, lives and global environment. To avoid this negative impact, Salariin Kampuchea organized the plastic workshop for130 people. This includes parents, students and community leaders that conducted by Bamboo Stage group and cooperated with Global Action for Environment Awareness Company (Gaea) in Siem Reap. Please read more how the workshop conducted and how it influences and educates children and young people and community.

How the Plastic workshop run?

Firstly, we asked Global Action for Environment Awareness Company (Gaea) for environment experts/educators to the workshop for the community at our school. Second, during the workshop, the environment expert from Gaea introduce about the disaster and negative impact from plastic used by human beings on our planet every year. They also educate everyone to get involved to reduce plastic use as much as possible. Thirdly, Bamboo Stage did their show for the participants.

The show was about Angko Roo talking about people use too much plastic daily for living. They throw plastic everywhere. These plastic includes straw, plastic sack, bag, biodegradable package…etc. Then couples of chicken, hens and cocks where they used to live with fresh and friendly environment started to eat those plastics that human beings throw on the ground. The animals like hens and cocks do not know it is plastic so they eat it. Furthermore, human beings themselves had heath problem, too. As the results, animals and human beings got sick and died because hens and cocks ate food and plastic from plastic sack. Whereas human beings got influent from plastic when they burn it and they breathe the air from the smoke around them.

Overall, the show wanted to educate that people use too many plastic for their daily lives affect to the planet, environment, people health, animals and living things. They realized better about environment and they reduce plastic use in their living. Finally, all participants walked, cleaned and picked up plastic and rubbish in the community.

Sopheak, one of our students expresses her feeling about the plastic workshop and the show. “Hello, my name is Sopheak. I am a student at Salariin Kampuchea Organization. A few months ago, I participated in the plastic rubbish workshop conducted at Salariin Kampuchea. For me, I am very interesting in the workshop and I really enjoy the show because I have learnt about the negative impact of plastic and community engagement for cleaning environment. For me, before I have never known clearly how to manage rubbish and its pollution and I did not know also how my daily actions affect to pollute the environment but after I joined the workshop, I know better. I know every sing life for example human, animals, fish, land, air need cleaning environment on the planet”.

For the community I think that when they understand about the negative impact of the plastic or rubbish, they will engage with environment management or engage in cleaning our environment. Then they will become a role model for other communities. Finally, everyone get involved to take of their own action and clean, manage rubbish and reduce plastic then our planet is cleaned and then climate change is no longer. 

In the next three months, we will arrange a traffic law workshop, first Aid training, paint the school and hand washing.

We would like to thanks everyone who supported us through GlobalGiving with your hard earning money. Width your help we hope to continue and build upon the success of our non-formal education program.

We wish you happy New Year, every success, happiness and enjoy it with your family and friends!

Every year, Salariin Kampuchea organizes a Spelling Bee Competition in order to improve children’s learning of their English language skills. Please read more how the Spelling Bee competition conducted and how students benefit from the competition as well as what we have done, involved and engaged in social and environmental activities with our students in the last three months.                                           

How English Spelling Bee Competition Run?

Firstly, students are divided into two groups of Spelling Bee students, group beginning learners called Honey Bee, and group Intermediate learners called Busy Bee. For Honey Bee group has got word list with 700 English words and Busy Bee group has got word list with 1200 English words. Both teams have a period of one month and half to learn how to spell the words provided before they start to practice the spelling words.

Secondly, both groups start to practice in their classes conducted by their class teachers. They practice from list 1 till list 12 (1 list consists 100 English words.

Thirdly, all students who join the Spelling Bee competition for both groups are eliminated from their classes. Each class needs only 3 winners in order to join the final competition.

Final Spelling Bee Competition

Each class selected 3 winners either Honey Bee group or Busy Bee group. In the final day, there are 3 committees, reader, timer and listener committee. There are 21 students from Honey Bee and there are 12 students from Busy Bee. For each group, Honey Bee and Busy Bee students are eliminated to find out 3 winners (first, second and third place) mean 3 winners for Honey Bee and 3 winners for Busy Bee.

Spellers for each group come to the committees and spell the word from reader committee. We do this round and round till we get 3 winners.

Finally, we announce the 3 champion spellers, number 1, number 2 and number 3 from both groups. To congratulate to the champion spellers, we award them with study maters, books, pens, pencils, and dictionary and appreciation certificates. Below are the messages from two champion spellers.

One student, Ratanak, the first place champion speller from Busy Bee (1200 English words) expresses his feeling and opinion about participation in the Spelling Bee competition. “My name is Ratanak. Since I study with Salariin Kampuchea, I am really happy that the school celebrated this competition. It improves my English language. In the name of a student who gets successful, the first place of champion speller for 1200 English words, I am very excited and proud of myself because it is the first time for me. I would recommend and share to my friends about why I become the first place. There are many reasons why I get it because I invest more time to study at home besides studying at school. I also read more about wordlist and try to remember how to spell them. Another reason, I am encouraged by my friends. They make me become stronger and working hard. Both things can push me successfully.

One student, Vern, the second place champion speller from Honey Bee (700 English words) expresses his feeling and opinion about participation in the Spelling Bee completion. “My name is Vern. Since I study at Salariin Kampuchea, I feel happy that I have many friends and teachers who teach me and make this Spelling Bee competition. It selected the students who have ability to spell the English words. I really try my best to spell and remember how to spell the words that teachers teach in order to jump to the final selection. I read words and spell words again and again either at home and at school. I also ask my sister to read words for me to spell before the final competition as well as I learn how to spell them by myself, too. These are reasons that make me to be the second champion spellers for 700 English words.  Finally, thank you for Salariin Kampuchea.

Please see what we have done for the last three months.                                         

ICT (Information and Communication Technology)

Formal school programs in outskirt areas of Siem Reap, Cambodia have limited access to ICT, so children are in primary school level have no access to computer lesson in their formal school; however, Salariin Kampuchea organization provides them access to information and communication and technology program to over 20 students.

I feel very happy to study it and I hope that when I finish, I can use it propyl and I want to buy one computer to practice at home and I can help some task from my Khmer teacher. Finally, thank you for Salariin Kampuchea.

 

English Language Skills

To communicate to the world and benefit for the future job market of children, Cambodian people do not only depend on their mother tongue “Khmer” but also they entirely depend on foreign languages such as English because of the national economic is influenced by foreign investors. Moreover, they start to learn English late comparing to their age because in the government school in primary school level has less access to foreign language learning. To respond to the needs of Cambodian people and make easier way to students in order to supply to the job market, we are offering English lessons to over 300 disadvantaged students. They are very happy to learn the language beside Khmer.

One student, Sreymass expresses her feeling about learning English here.“My name is Sreymass. I study at Salariin Kampuchea for three years. I study here because I think this school can help me all the things like can help me to improve my English speaking, improve my knowledge and I can know my knowledge. I can do all things to help my school too. I think also the school can make me a good person and can help me to find a job very well. By learning here, studying in here, I can make a lot of friends and I feel very happy to learn here. Moreover, here I can know grammar, listening and speaking with new volunteers when they come to my school. They can help the students and can help teachers here. I feel very happy to study in here”.

 

Chinese Language Skills

To communicate to the world and benefit for the future job market of children in Cambodia, Cambodian people do not only depend on their mother tongue “Khmer” but also they entirely depend on foreign languages such as Chinese because of the national economic at this day is influenced by Chinese investors. There is a lot of Chinese investment in Cambodia. Moreover, in the government school in primary to high school has no access to Chinese language learning. To respond to the needs of Cambodian people and make easier way to students in order to supply to the job market, we are offering Chinese lessons to over 50 disadvantaged students. They are very happy to learn Chinese language. New findings, people know how to speak Chinese is easier to get a job and well paid. 

One student, Sophoan expresses her feeling about why she attends in Chinese class. “Hello, my name is Sophoan. Reason that I study Chinese because I live Chinese; I want to speak Chinese, I am very happy to learn it and I have good feeling when I speak Chinese. Also Chinese has a lot of benefits such as communicating with Chinese people, we can get a good job when I finish my study. Because in our country at right now there are a lot of job market that need people can speak Chinese so I decide to study Chinese.

 

Hand Washing Workshop

Besides attending in English, preschool, computer classes, our students are encouraged to participate in hand-washing activities. Our teachers and volunteers arranged, organized and conducted hand washing again to over 100 young children at our school. They learn how to wash their hands and when to wash their, before meal, and after leave toilet. They learn it before and after their class. They really enjoy hand washing with their classmates and friends. They realize and understand better about the benefit of cleaning hands and they are able to apply it at home before meal and after leave latrine.

 

Social Event Celebration 

In April, we celebrated Khmer New Ceremony and award celebration to our students who worked hard, passed exam, attended the class regularly and read the most readers in the library. Over 50 certificates and appreciation letters offered to our students who passed their certificate and final test for their level, who had perfect attendance for their lessons and who read the most in the library. We learnt that this event really encouraged and motivated students to participate in our program better and they are really competitive. It also convinced more students to come. They are very happy to receive awards and certificates from the school as well as have fun and enjoy meal together at our school.

One student, Ratanak expresses his feeling and opinion about certificate and Khmer New Year party. “My name is Ratanak. I am a student that study at Salariin Kampuchea for four years till now. I feel very happy to study here because teachers and students are friendly so I do not want to miss my lesson. I feel very exciting for the award and certificate that I get during the party. It is so fantastic for my life. I think my perfect day of this school is the day that the school brings me a certificate. I get the award and perfect attendance certificate because I never miss my class or absence. At the end of my text, I love Salariin Kampuchea and I want to study here until I get a bright future in my life”.

In the next three months, we will continue hand washing, arrange the skype call with their pen friends in Norway and conduct a Spelling Bee Competition.
