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.

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.

Absence of the International & Cambodian Children’s Day Celebration 2016

International & Cambodian Children Day Celebration @ AKC

Sorry we are too busy working to develop our children at our school as well as our communities, that is why there is no festive celebration for our kids this year, said the AKC project director, Samnang Chhon explaining the absence of International & Cambodian Children’s Day Celebration 2016.

International & Cambodian Children Day Celebration @ Angkor Kids Center 1st June 2012

If you hit the above link you will see our care to promote the basic rights of the children and care about their welfare back in 2012. By that time, the International & Cambodian Children Day celebration which was to be held on the first of June, was not so in common, that was the reason we started to build the awareness to the public, especially at the remote community level of how important the children and their basic rights are, YOU CAN READ FULL EVENT REPORT HERE.

In the recent years, we have noticed that the celebrations have been  increasing significantly, as of 2016 almost every local TV channel, school, organization, and institution celebrated this child events.

As mentioned by our director above, we see that there is no need to make the celebration, national levels have made it publicly with many modern means. Additionally, our team are busy with other important and top priority work to serve our children and this meant much more for them to our perspective.

The question of what we are busy with, we have the answer as following :

1/- We are working to improve the school and classroom condition, fans and  electricity installation, bathroom maintenance, fence developing….

2/- We are trying to send at least six more candidates from our school and communities to do the vocational training course in tourism, one to Paul Dubrule, and five other to Haven Cambodia which is our best way to reintegrate our students and volunteer team.

3/- We are trying to send at least seven candidates to do an Interactive Teacher Training Course on the Teaching English as a second language TESL at Australia Centre for Education (ACE) Siem Reap,s, to improve and build the standard and quality of teaching English at our school, as well as developing the English ability to our team from the class.

4/- A few other work and case study with our donors and partners, to be specified when there are progressing more than 50% to our expectation at least.

These all the core activities that our local team are approaching to get done within this month, and that is why we left the celebration of International and Cambodian Children’s Day on 1st June 2016 quiet, even we know that kids love it.

Hope you find our work important same as the spirit our local team, and please bear with us that without you, your support, motivation and encouragement, it is really hard for us to invest our little time into a productive work, we need YOU.

Appreciate our work, please spread the word as one of the greatest mean to help Angkor Kids Center.
