News from This Life Cambodia

As a grassroots organisation working in the heart of communities, staff are the lifeblood of TLC. Social workers, particularly, make a huge difference to the lives of people facing big challenges, including helping the families of the students you support, children at risk of being separated from parents, or families facing debt and poverty.

For this year's International Social Worker Day we created a video showing the remarkable things 6 of our social workers do each day, while educating people across Cambodia about a discipline which is still less than 10 years old here. We think the video is enlightening and inspiring - do watch it here. 

On another educational theme, one of our most popular stories on Facebook was about Heang,  the vocational trainer at our social enterprise, Moto Doctor. After years as a mechanic himself, he now teaches young people from disadvantaged backgrounds how to learn valuable skills.

His positive example inspires the youths he works with, who see how he has himself overcome major challenges. "When I'm teaching these youngsters how to repair motorbikes, I remember when I was a student like them. Things were sometimes really hard for me, because I lost my legs to a disease when I was younger, which made repairing motors harder. But that gives me hope that no matter how hard they might find learning about motorbikes, they can do it and become a great mechanic in the future.  Some even set up their own businesses, which makes me really happy." For more stories and photographs like this, go to our annual report here.

Thank you so much for your continued support of This Life Cambodia.
