Dear sponsor,

It is my pleasure to write to you and tell you more about the life at the SOS Children’s Village Phnom Penh. We hope you enjoy reading and knowing more about the families and their lives at the village.

Up to date we have provided a family to 181 children who 1 of them have been embraced this year. She has been provided with all necessary needs so she always feel belong to her family. She can later overcome the trauma of losing her environment, friends and family from where she comes. She has found in the SOS Children’s Village Phnom Penh a loving home. The youngest child is under 3 years old and the oldest child is 21 years old. We have been organising Khmer Traditional Dancing every Sunday morning, football training every Thursday & Saturday, Karate-do every Saturday evening & Sunday morning. We organize English class in village for elementary level everyday. Simultaneously they also study out side the village for the beginner & Newspaper class everyday. They all enjoy studying all this Programme. On March 13, 2010 SOS girl team joined football match at Old Stadium. This match was for the friendship and was organized by Indochina Start Fish, supported by Barclay Capital Bank.

SOS Nursery provides education to our children and the children from the neighbourhood. The SOS Nursery is in the village and you can hear children laughing in every group. This is a place which is never quiet! Up to 125 children between the ages 3-6 attend SOS Nursery. The availability of suitable classrooms, game and toys ensures that the children are given the optimum conditions for developing their social, intellectual and creative skills and they are prepared for the primary school.

Presently, three Youth Houses are functioning in Phnom Penh. 21 youngsters are living in I youth house, 24 youngsters in II youth house and 21 youngsters in III youth house. Some of them have already started vocational training course, attended University and some get higher education.

Simultaneously there are 2 youths have found a part-time job. They want to get experience during studying.

The mothers and Aunts from the SOS Children’s Village are regularly receiving literacy training Programmeme in order to help reinforce their level of understanding, improving their work and responsibilities and allowing them to better support their children’s care and education. They also received training on the SOS Village manual and Child Protection Policy for better understanding.

In order to make children more interested in their life, we always promote their developments, activities and events which organized within and outside the village.

On the 1st June, International Children’s Day a joint entertaining activity was arranged at SOS Nursery in village. All mothers, children and co-workers participated in the event. All the children get up early to made up and dress up neatly. All children enjoyed playing with many game such as banana eating competition, pair running competition and dancing game competition. There were many question relating to the rights of the children are prepared for children. They can answer all the questions. They also received the gifts from the committee. They all were joyful and know well about the International Children’s Day.

During the Vacation, youth leader and youths went away on a trip to Kampong Som Province. They took between 3 and 4 hours to reach Kampng Som Province. There are several popular beaches in the provincial Centre of the Kompong Som Province such as Victorial, Independence, Sokha, O Chheu Teal, and O Tres. They have visited all that beaches. They were happy to see the clean white sandy beach, the crystal clear ocean and palm trees. After they finished lunch they took a rest for one hour. Then they swimmed togther. They enjoyed it very much and had a wonderful time!

Your kind help enables us to do work. Therefore on behalf of all us I would like to thank you and convey our gratitude and appreciation.
