Meaningful and Successful 2019

Before all, please allow our AKC / AKO family wish you all the warmest and greatest Season’s Greetings!

It comes to a conclusion ūüėČ Let’s use our countdown moment to review our meaningful and successful 2019. This year 2019 has been a year of our historical progress for Angkor Kids Center. AKC family is so proud to recap what we have done as following:

SOFT DEVELOPMENT

Just a reminder that AKC has official current five board members (Mr. Samnang CHHON, Mr. Hak HIEN, Mrs. Salin NHY, Mr. Meam BY, and Mr. Cheay KROM).

AKC Board of Directors

Front Right: Samnang | Middle Right: Cheay | Back End Right: Meam Front Left: Salin | Behind Left: Hak

And three full-time employees are actively serving AKC, Mr. Hak HIEN, Mr. Vith SUON and Mr. Chhay LEAP. These 3 committed team members are playing the most crucial roles for AKC development. Special thanks to Helpucation e.V. Germany for exclusively funding this HR project.

Chhay was our first ever paid staff. He started his job by reporting all the school need and maintain the school.  While Vith who is the latest employed teamwork. He is working on developing the classroom curriculum. Back in January 2019, instead of trying everything out, AKC fixed to use only one material (Family & Friend Books). Particularly,  Hak is directing the school to meet the mission and vision of the organization. He assists doing the work of the Founding Director. Putting all the short term and long term need into proper project papers. Ensuring the project implementation is going at the most productive, and most efficient. What is more, Hak keep all donors and stakeholders updated with his reports in local language, Khmer and English.

AKC Employee

Above all, we have also six local volunteers who are actively involved with AKC activities, especially teaching on a regular basic. We are proudly to introduce them from Left to Right: 1- Ms. Houy Chandeng, 2- Ms. Ngek Ran, 3- Mr. Khon Chert, 4- Mr. Pen Mesa 5- 3- Ms. Hos Nisa 6- Ms. Sok Toeun.

AKC Volunteer Team

With all this evolution and development, AKC gains not only the confidence from our own communities but the neighboring’s. In which, we attract more and more students to enroll.

INFRASTRUCTURE & FACILITIES DEVELOPMENT

The most significant achievement we have made is the new two-room building. This premise is coming just in time of our need for the classroom expansion and office for our growing team. This two rooms are well furnished with modern chair-desks, office furniture, and LAB facilities. We thanks to Ivanhoe Grammar School Service Trip 2019 Australia which is the main donors. And Logos Academy School, Hong Kong, co-funding donor. For bringing this grand project to live.

Angkor Kids New School

Back to the Light for AKC School project 2017, that a fully powerful set of solar has been built. This most meaning project brought to AKC by our parenting foundation Helpucation e.V. Carrying on from this concept of Solar energy and the model of sustainability development. This year 2019, Helpucation brought extra panels of Solar on AKC rooftop, along with several batteries and light tubes for the most underprivileged families. This system is specializing in Recharging Batteries. The villagers now can go to our center to charge their batteries instead of going miles away. And pollute the environment by the generator. Check the detailed report of this Home Light Project here.

Back in March 2019, our AKC kids and team got access to Safe Drinking Water. Thanks to Local Measure Australia for spending their time with us. Your Purified Drinking Water System is a meaningful project to AKC school. Kids are dehydrated now.

Purified Water @ AKC

November 2019, AKC school playground switch from the soil ground to Patio. We thanks to MANE company outing from Bangkok for support us all these. What Mane CSR day was much and beyond a visit. In addition to the Patio building, Categorized Trash Bins was also built. What is more, the day was full of learning and fun, for instance: Kids learned to separate wastes. Kids learned about art and did some basic art competition. Kids learned about brain training games and having fun with it. At last, there were are also some sport activities like soccer…

Patio at AKC school

At last but not least, AKC celebrate our successful and meaningful 10 Years Anniversary.

With the most festive event and celebration. Again, thanks to Helpucation foundation for funding all the expenses of the event. Thanks for your wonderful gift of our 10 year progressing work.

10 Years AKC 2019

We have also take this opportunity to inaugurate the new school build and the new LAB (computer class founded by Child Foundation USA)

SPONSORSHIP & HUMANITY WORK

As we know children could only live and grow if they are supported with the four fundamental needs / rights. Including: 1)- Survival rights, 2)- Developmental rights, 3)-Protection rights, 4)- Participation rights. As an organization who are working closely with children, we do not just give lessons in class and at school, but have basic approach to their individual personal life. Thanks to Child Foundation in the United States whose projects are working to seek the most unprivileged children around the world and find sponsors for them. After working with AKC, we found 19 (nineteen) kids who meet their recruitment criteria. With their support, their basic needs are improved.

Furthermore, AKC has also well thought over our local volunteers. In addition to the benefit of personal growth through learning from teaching and other social participation. AKC also seek sponsorship opportunity for them. As a result, this year, Mr. Kroem Kruoch who used to volunteer with AKC for years. He now got sponsored by Link For Aid, a charitable association in Italy. Kroem is going to finish his University preparation course soon and will be moving to his foundation year in the coming 2020.

Link For Aid in Cambodia

Above all, through the donation of our partners and visitors, AKC has also contributed many bicycles and school materials to our most needed children that allow them to continue their study.

HOSPITALITY SCHOOL / AKC REINTEGRATION PROJECT

Any driving vehicles have their own direction. Same for Angkor Kids Center, with our rich and extensive background in Hospitality and the geographical potential. AKC set Hospitality Training Project as the goal for AKC to reach. This 2019, the AKC BOD members had invested our own pocket to initiate by starting a small lodge in the downtown of Siem Reap, called ALL FOR STAY Lodge. The business was up and running under the leadership of Mr. Cheay KROM. Unfortunately, due to the maintenance and renovation needed to be done, we decided to suspend the contract.

All For Stay Lodge

What we gain from this Business Startup is the experience, and responsibility as young entrepreneur. We are confident that  the AKC Hospitality Training Project could be properly executed when we are there.

PUBLIC RECOGNITION & APPRECIATION

Angkor Kids Center is not kids anymore, since we registered with the Ministry of Interior of the Kingdom of Cambodia as a Non-Profit Organization. We are now ALL FOR KIDS ORGANIZATION. We have our specialized staff to deliver our work. Since no one is born with silver spoon in their mouth. And born perfect. We are striking to tackle with any issue arisen along the ways.

With the regular movies night, AKC is building our publicity at the cheapest or even no cost. With professional work we are doing, AKC image is reaching out to the neighboring communities bringing back close to 50 students come from those areas.

What even special, Angkor Kids Center received OFFICIAL RECOGNITION OF APPRECIATION from the official government.

Official Appreciation Letter

CONCLUSION & MESSAGE FROM FOUNDING DIRECTOR

To sum up, me, Samnang personally as the Founding Director who oversee the project progresses and challenges. I am confidently commenting that this 2019 is a top success for Angkor Kids Center. Just the budget itself, thoroughly, not less than 30 thousands USD. This amount already the top number. It is true that there are still rooms for improvement. And challenges to overcome, but those are what to do next in the coming 2020. There are always issue in life, only no life, no issues.

One behalf of AKC / AKO families, I would like proceed our utmost gratefulness to all our donors especially the team at Helpucation e.V. without your firm support, it will be so hard for us to move here. Ivanhoe Grammar School for including us into your annual service trip beneficiary group. Asia Natural Tours (ANT), for introducing AKC communities into your reliable CSR programs. Especially the carefully designing or bringing over only the passionate clients / companies to our communities and school. And president Pamela at Link For Aid for always supporting our individual kids and youth. It is a great way to give them back or reintegrate them. Yes, there are so many more generous individuals and corporate¬†are not listed here. As Henry Ford said, there is no success without working together. However I would like to limit up here and make it short. Hope you don’t mind.

Looking forward to 2020, there are so many in our list. And those plans are the reliable ones, but I keep it to the next news post because now is all about 2019.

New AKC Purified Drinking Water System

Drink Well, Eat Well and Live Well, is a slogan commonly used as a form to remind people to live a healthy life. With understanding that school is the second home for general kids, Angkor Kids Center took an advanced step to have our kids and team a healthier life. So what we have approached?

Purified Drinking Water System

A well constructed and professionally installed Purified Drinking Water System is now available on the ground of AKC school. The system comprised of water tanks on high stands, purified filters, UV system / filters, basins, taps, faucets, piping and electricity cables as outlined in this reference picture:

Purified Drinking Water System Project Funding

Let’s call back Mr. Samnang Chhon, the Founding Director of Angkor Kids Center / All For Kids NGO, his business, Asia Natural Tours (ANT)¬†With his business activities, Sam could reach out to the like-minded people and partners from everywhere in the world. In having a good relationship with Ms. Donna Rix from Local Measure¬†Australian office, who were planning to bring over her company annual event to Siem Reap. The company wish to leave a meaningful souvenir to the country. Angkor Kids Center and the¬†Purified Drinking Water System Project were presented with a great interest.

With our established team, Mr. Hak Hien, our Executive Director, submitted a proposal of over fifteen hundreds USD (USD 1,500+) to ANT DMC to be passed on LM. The proposal accepted by LM, ANT advanced the cash to AKC to kick the construction off.

Purified Drinking Water System Construction and Installation

AKC New Solar PanelBefore jumping to the flow of construction work, we would like to remind that. Without the powerful SOLAR SYSTEM founded through Helpucation e.V. this Purified Drinking Water System Project would not have been at this ease!

 

Right after getting the proposal acceptance by Local Measure management at a very short notice. AKC committee started having a meeting to finalize the project design and the outcome. With Sam’s extensive network and contacts, a team of local engineering, water experts and contractors, lead by Mr. Ponlok have been contracted. What even potential, one of the team members are from Siem Reap Water Supply Authority. This made out system reached to the highest standard, because the water has been tested in the professional LAB for many stages.

AKC Water System Constructoon

Local Measure CSR ProjectWith their great passion in making this system and this project the most successful, this team of engineering  work all day and half night on the weekend. Just after three weeks, a amazing construction and the system is beautifully rising next door to our existing school building. The water Potential of Hydrogen (PH) are between 7.5 to 8.5 which is the most qualified and best for health.

We don’t have just safe drinking water station, we have also designed a hand washing station where the water sourced from the secondary filtered tank. Samrong village now is the first communities ever who could access to safe drinking water from the taps in Cambodia.

Drinking Water Inauguration Event Day  

Not before long, as of 22nd February 2019, the donor organization, Local Measure team arrived at AKC school to witness their incredible project accomplishment as the company and do the hand-on service work with their passion. The group get greeted by the school committee and kids, right after a short introduction of the overall project. The 40 participants split in teams, some work on finishing the foundation of the stands, some working on the arts of painting and some work on plastic littering collection.

Then the event day ended with a monk blessing following the local traditional celebration of new accomplishment. The LM team hand monks the offerings and hand some biscuits, writing pats and pencils to the over 300 kids. And bit the goodbye.

The Return of Matured AKC Alumnus Meam

Would the return of our alumnus as another success story for AKC? Meam opens a case study here:

Just like a quick moment passed but it has been already over ten years now that we have put our work on this social projects. It has been quite a period of time that our initial alumnus have left the school and village for better education and experiences. Over the course, you may have learned different success stories  from our volunteers and the students.

We experienced the hardness of building up the team capability to handle the teaching. The better ones were leaving us for better life, after they gained better knowledge for themselves. However, the challenges we have faced were for good purposes as those  are the objective of our school to build the youth capacity and reintegrate them somewhere through our programs or by their owns.

Cheay @ ALL FOR STAY Lodge Guest Service Director

What is even prouder for all the dedication we have put together, as on the ground of Angkor Kids Center, and as for the International supporters and donors like¬†Helpucation e.V.¬†“Every door I enter, either hotels, resorts, restaurants, airports, airlines, airplanes, tour agency,¬†Destination Management Company, attractions, special venues or even a garden, I always get surprised by respected greetings”¬†Said Samnang, the Founding Director. These unexpected voices and gestures are from the former AKC students and Volunteers who left the school for better skills, education and jobs. Therefore this has witnessed the success and other investment put on recruiting new local volunteers, train them and let them leave for better and a great solution for the moment that we can not keep them with us due to the ongoing¬†REINTEGRATION APPROACH.

Sticking to the natural cause as the base of our practice, “Do Good, Get Good”. In the fair way of treating our people around, we are so privileged to¬†have¬†Meam¬†bringing this most advanced class back targeting to the current AKC volunteers and young adults.

AKC Volunteer Teacher

EFL Teacher

Meam By, academic leader

‚ÄúServing the social services is my favorite hobby, helping children in rural area is my goal‚ÄĚ, Mean quoted. Not different from other children and members of¬†Angkor Kids Center. Meam was born and grown in Somrong village. He took advantage by learning and teaching English and other skills at Angkor Kids Center. In favor of education, he uses his scholarship grant from an AKC partner, One Step One Life, to transform his EFL teaching skill to the professional level by spending¬†a five years++ at the University in Siem Reap.

Thanks for your reading with great interest, share our loves to all your lovely people, share our news. There are more news to come stay connected.

Happy Festive Seasons! Love from all AKC team, Kids and Family!

Movies Night of AKC

A movie can be a gateway to exploring complex ideas and open children’s eyes to other ways of looking at the world.


Movies Night of Angkor Kids Center

Movie is not just a part of the entertainment, but it also a product of technological development, and as a tool for providing education. This approach is starting with the our Angkor Kids Center(AKC) , and additionally it is also a way to outreach people and community about the importance of education, the impact of excessive use of plastic and the preservation of the natural environment.

AKC Welcomes Executive Director to Take Over AKC

‚ÄúEducation is the Key for Change‚ÄĚ, Hak quoted. Hak has been employed by All For Kids Organization as the first full time Executive Director to take over the school and project management. This incredible HR development has been made available only with the greatest support from the donors to Helpucation e.V in Germany. Let’s have this wonderful life journey with Hak as following:AKO Executive Director

My name’s HIEN Hak and I am 25 years old.

I am the eldest son in the family with three younger sisters and my mother. And I am married, my wife is Makra and I have a son Jesda Alex who is 7 months old. My family is a middle-class family in this rural areas.

Before rejoining the Angkor Kids Center / All For Kids Organization as Executive Director, I used to work for a 5 star hotel, Amansara Resort in Siem Reap, Cambodia for 3 years.

I attended the first English class in 2008 with Mr. CHHON Samnang, our AKC Founder. There were 25 students in the class. After one year of studies, I joined the Angkor Kids Center as a volunteer assistant teacher from 2009 to 2011 teaching around 15 students in my class. From 2011 to 2013 I volunteered as a full-time teacher with 25 students.

After I graduated from high school in 2013, I had the chance to get a scholarship from Mrs. Pamela McCourt Francescone coordinated by the Angkor Kids Center to join a vocational training school called Paul Dubrule Hospitality school. It is the best Tourism and Hospitality training school in Siem Reap. After one year of training there, I got a job as Restaurant Captain in a middle class restaurant in Siem Reap. After three months of working there, I was interviewed to work at one of the top ten hotels in Siem Reap named AMANSARA.

The love and the desire to help the Angkor Kids Center to become a place that is providing a better quality of education to children and youth in this area, led me back to where I started. It also let me share what I’ve learned with the students at the Angkor Kids Center.

My first goal for the Angkor Kids Center is to have a clear educational system and program that can provide free quality education to children. Furthermore, our teachers and volunteers can increase and develop their abilities more effectively.

The next steps I want to take in the Angkor Kids Center:

  1. A comprehensive classroom and a library that enables students and teachers to further increase their knowledge.
  2. Having an International English As Foreign Language School Curriculum and School Management Standard to follow with a vision to see AKC school as the international standard Free foreign language school in the most remote area.
  3. Create a professional tourism training center on hotel, restaurant and hospitality skills.
  4. Multi-crop plantations that act as a supplier for the tourism training center.
  5. Be self-sustained or partial contributed from the project (3 and 4) above.

Thank you for all your support so far. Let’s stay in touch and see the growth of AKC school together. Your suggestion and feedback are highly valued and consider.

Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success. Edward Everett Hale.

Not Just Kids But Family Care

We all know that our work throughout the course is about kids and young adults development and rehabilitation whom are the Bamboo shoots. But a responsible Care and Give is not just the show but back scenes of their daily life, and family situation. Angkor Kids Center / All for Kids Organization is paying our effort to understand and oversee all these matters and paid to each and individual kids at both our school and kids running around in the village with a purpose to attract them to school and stay in school.

To illustrate in a more visual way, let us give you an example of the work we have done:

As of May 2018, one of the kids’ family living in Samrong village who are living in the worst condition in the community was affected by the natural disaster / storm. The family of Mr. Miev and Mrs. Mork with 6 children living for years in a small and narrow thatched house. Just after saving bit of money, they could afford to build just a house structure and roof where they could settle in. What is worth, this May 2018, their nest was fought by a storm and got the entire structure collapsed. Luckily, there is no one in the family got injured but their little household got destroyed including the bicycle that their kids used for riding to school.

Sustainable Community Project

You might see AKC team now is slow and inactive, we have to confess that “yes we are” but no one is sleeping, we keep our eyes on and our hand dirty from the distance and from the ground. After learning this information, our founder / director Mr. Samnang Chhon has raised the fund through his contact and his company Asia Natural Tour contact. As a result, two bicycles were donated with the donation of Mrs. Pamela Mccourt Francescone, the founder & president of Link For Aid charity association in Italy and¬†some cash donation from Asia Natural Tour for urgent need.

Community Support

Those help are not yet the end, Asia Natural Tour (ANT) has raised this fundamental need which is part of the Humanity Priority Right of housing access to their business partner. What a prouder  news is that a new house will be rebuilt with the fund support from that partner which is a school based in Hong Kong called Logos Academy  The AKC team and ANT team will work together to host this trip and organize the community service activities for this group in the coming July 2018.

Keep you posted on the outcome, stay tune and follow on our social media.

Mascha & Joaquin Conclude their Time at the Angkor Kids Center

Mascha and Joaquin have been able to move a lot during their time at the Angkor Kids Center just like Laura, Chhay and the other volunteer helpers, and have a crush on their hearts. We are sure that she has had a lasting influence on this experience and that she will always remember the exciting time in Cambodia and we thank her very much for her energetic support. Please read yourself for what they are saying about their volunteer work in the Angkor Kids Center:

The school was founded by Samnang in 2009 and many years ago he met a German couple that enabled him to learn English. Then he wanted to offer the children from his village the same opportunity and it was the Angkor Kids Center (later on registered to the Royal Government of Cambodia under the legal name All For Kids NGO).

Playground at AKC school

Today, the school consists of three classrooms and a room that serves as a library, computer room and office. It has its own toilets, a schoolyard with climbing frames and an adjacent playground for the children. There is electricity and even Wi-Fi, which makes working for teachers much easier. The children come to the Angkor Kids Center after their normal school and the teachers are also volunteers and go to school themselves.

Chhay, who is just 22 years old, is in our opinion the heart and soul of the center. He is the only employee of the school, giving computer classes twice a day and teaching two English classes. He is also the one who opens and closes the school, taking care of the trash and everything else. We have grown very fond of him over time and without him we probably could not have realized any of our ideas. Mostly we have prepared the lessons together with Chhay. But other things, such as a timetable, an overview of all newly found educational games and multiple worksheets were created. We cleaned the library, repaired climbing frames and made new trash cans.

AKC working class

The lessons, which we were allowed to follow, we liked and the kids were extremely motivated in the matter. We could only teach together with Chhay, but that was not a disadvantage for the children and for us. In general, the cohesion and the climate blew us away there. They were friendly with each other and also we were interested mustered, smiled and greeted. All we can say is that the Angkor Kids Center is much more than just a school. It is the meeting place of the children, whether for learning or for playing. There are books, toys, football goals, climbing frames and the doors are open (thanks to Chhay) all day for everyone.

Although it’s hard to accept that children do not have the same opportunities and opportunities around the world, the Angkor Kids Center is a great start in the right direction. We wish all those involved the best for the future and we hope to have contributed something good to the project.
