Graduation Celebration Party

In the last three months, we offered 23 certificates to 3rd generation of Life skills students who graduated successfully from their program. Congratulation for their success.

Social Lessons:

In this quarter, our young adults have a great time, gain knowledge and experience from lessons and workshop in the training course. Those include a family planning session, the students realized about importance of organizing or setting a plan for their future’s husband and wife whether when they appropriately choose to get married. Furthermore, they also catch up about having a baby for their family whenever they are fully able to feed their babies and provide happiness for their families. Also the students are offered the domestic violence lesson, they are aware of cause and effect of having domestic violence such as poverty, uneducated people, jealousy, no tolerance in the family and do not provide fully rights for their partners for their living. Thus, they consider and reflect these issues to their society where they are living.

Other 3 sessions with bullying lesson, saving money, and family and environment lesson, the students realize about closely relationship with their classmates and are not harmful to the others because it causes to their friend/classmate’s study or feeling. They also got a new way or technique to keep their money not only safe but also get interest and benefit from it by creating new account at the bank or use their money to raise any animals to sell for their own study. Furthermore, they understand about interrelationship between family and environment. They know that people who live by them are vital to them and their families because if their surrounded people are illiterate, gambling and use the drug, certainly, it will affect to their siblings or relatives of their families. Thus, they think that both family and environment are very important for them.

Traffic Workshop

Not only life skills students but also English students are very interested in this workshop because this new traffic law for 2016 is very strict and traffic policy will fine to whom do not obey the new traffic law as well as articles. Therefore, both of them raised up a lot of questions related to traffic article in order to avoid from fining and traffic accident. They are aware of traffic signs, realize about general accident caused by traffic and number of death and injuries.

“My name is Chantha. I am 19 years old and I am a student of Salariin Kampuchea organization. Bellow, I am writing about my feeling that I joined workshop that talking about traffic law of Cambodia. So I can say that the traffic law it is very important that the people need to know and follow the rule for all because every day you travel on the road in order to avoid accident, reduce accident and especially it is protecting your life so we have to realize it.

This workshop is interesting because when I join I have gained my knowledge such as how to use the road properly, how to avoid from accident and especially I have known a lot about road signs, law of fines and punishment. I also realize about accident and injured figure data happening in Cambodia. 

For me, when I follow the signs and traffic law, I am protecting myself and my life. This is the first workshop for me that I have never attended before. Thanks for the school that arranged it for us”.

In the coming three months, we are planning to visit a hotel, conduct drug lesson, how job announcement, writing CV and Cover letter read. We will also provide social media lessons, internet and email, PowerPoint presentation, how to be the best employee and hotel department, rehearsal interview, cooking class, visit Siem Reap vocational training, final trip for life skills project and coach and mentor life skills students before graduated.

I gain about type of communications, verbal and nonverbal and after I finished this lesson, I know a lot of thing that I can understand.

Traffic Law Workshop
Traffic Law Workshop

Salariin Kampuchea continues to provided lessons and workshop training which are very helpful for young adults to apply to their social and career daily lives. Our aim is to improve our young adults’ traffic law knowledge and cooking skills. Please read on to find out more about how Life Skills students benefit from these sessions.

Our Life Skill students have benefitted from a traffic training/workshop. Firstly, they are now able to recognize traffic signs alongside streets which tell them about dangers, direction, information, permission, and prohibition etc. Secondly, they realize the penalties when they commit against the traffic signs and law. They also understand what kind of penalties they will get if they do not drive according to the signs and how much they would pay to the traffic policemen. Thirdly, they realize the benefits of wearing a helmet when they are driving a motorbike. They also know how to wear the helmet properly and safely.

One student, Mesa shared her feelings about a traffic workshop she has learnt: “My name is Mesa. I am a student at Salariin Kampuchea organization. I’m studying English and life skill.

During study, my school received a workshop by the policeman in Siem Reap on 8th December 2014. This workshop is about traffic laws relating to the use of road, vehicales and fines. After I joined the course, I get a lot of knowledge. I know a number of traffic signs, traffic signal and understand the traffic laws. Furthermore, I understand the priority rights of driving on public roads. Related to the course I think that it is very important for all students and people because they clearly understand how to use traffic roads, use vehicle and how to drive on public roads safely. The most important thing is the extensive media society can reduce the risk of traffic death and injuries.

IN the end, I would like to deeply thank to the traffic policeman of the traffic police office in Siem Reap streamline the traffic laws at our school and we also would like to say thanks to our all teachers that have been diligent in preparing the workshop. I hope I will have the opportunity to participate in this course again later”.

An amazing contribution of a former student! In this period, we are very proud of one of our former students who shared her knowledge, experience and skill with the third generation class related to the cooking lesson. At the start, they are able to improve their communication among Salariin Kampuchea’s students (the former student and next generation). Next, the students gain knowledge about cooking a chicken burger. They learnt how to cook it with theory and practice.  They recognize what kind ingredients and the process of making a chicken burger. Finally, they are able to produce a chicken burger by themselves. It was a great fun and lesson learnt!

One student, Sreypov shared her feelings about cooking lesson she has learnt: “Today I am good and I would like to write my feeling about cooking class. In the afternoon, we learnt and trained from a cook teacher at school about a Chicken Blue Cheese Burger. During we were cooking with my team, I felt everything was the newest around myself so I really excited so much because  it was a good  way for reaching my goal in the future and it was important part of my life everyday too. And I did want to make it. After twenty minutes later, the food has finished and it was a wonderful burger.

Next we had to clear the table and washed the dishes together before we started eating. That time I was happy and tired too. Everything and all of my friends were ridiculous. All in all I got much knowledge from cooking class such:

-      I  knew about how  to make a burger food

-      I had a new experience for improving my cooking skills

-      And it was a part of communication between students and studednts especially students with teachers.

I hope to have a cooking lesson again. I wish to have a cooking class in a restaurant or hotel for the future. Finally, I wish teachers in Salariin Kampuchea have a nice day, have a good travelling, and have a lot of money and good health”.

In the coming three months, we will conduct an interview practice, final exam, and final trip for the 3rd life skill students, recruit the 4th life skill generation and organize further visits to local businesses, youth employment services and vocational training centers.

We are very proud to have provided this extremely valuable course, and we would like to thank all donors again who supported us through Global Giving. With the help of our partners at Global Giving, and you, we hope to keep building on this and moving forward with our personal and career training program for young adults.
