News from Sangkheum Center for Children

Positive news, as ever, coming from Sangkheum Centre for Children (SCC) as they make positive steps to support alternative care for children and move away from institutional care.

The Young Adult programme is a huge part of this vision as young adults are prepared for life outside of residential care and supported to manage by themselves in a monitored environment.

Tanya’s blog – back in Siem Reap

Tanya and Tep

I wasn’t sure it could be done – catching up with all four local partners in a 3 trip day field trip tagged on to a business trip to Thailand – something I usually need a fortnight to do. OK, so I sacrificed shopping and seeing some friends but given my last visit to the Kingdom of Cambodia was 14 months ago I was eager to try.  Of course we stay in touch with all of our projects with regular reports and Skype but nothing beats seeing the young adults myself.

Arriving at the weekend helped as it is Saturday afternoon that Salariin Kampuchea Life Skills classes take place; two sessions of two hours with about 15 attending each one. It was especially good timing as the Fourth generation of students had only started a few weeks ago and today’s’ subject matter was “Communication”. Continued…

Jo’s trip back to Cambodia, but…

Lunch at the temples

11 days are just never enough to see and do everything that needs doing in Siem Reap, especially when you want to catch up with old friends, help celebrate birthdays and see how all our wonderful projects are running. The ‘To Do’ list was long but fortunately only very little was left undone and hey, there is always next year…

On our first day, by chance, we bumped into one of Sangkheum Center’s young adults, Pok, who you may remember from our previous blogs as training with the army to become a nurse. She was beaming from ear to ear when she saw me and couldn’t wait to tell us about her new good looking husband and new job at the Eye department of the Provincial Hospital! So pleased to hear her good fortune, my smile in turn beamed from ear to ear and did not leave my face the entire trip – it was great to be back. Continued…
