Pauline, Sophea and Lisa spent the afternoon at Banyan Learning Tree's Outpost School in Tuol Sambo village. Families here were relocated from Phnom Penh. Many are AIDS-affected families.
What a fantastic School, Teacher Chamroeun has going here! He has a class in the morning and two in the afternoon and they are filled with really eager children!
Chamroeun is a vibrant, happy teacher and really has to be commended - he loves to teach. The students here have exceptional pronunciation.
We had a great time participating in the classes.
You should be really proud of supporting this school - it really is making a difference - such happy children.

Some of the students at Prokeab school. They always arrive an hour early for classes to play in the school grounds. It can be very noisy some days!
New kindergarten class at Banyan Learning Tree school, in Phnom Penh.
During the vacation period, Socheat Chea, a teacher at the Brighter Beginnings BLT School in Takeo held two classes for three months teaching math, problem solving and exercise to local students who will be in Grades 5 & 6 next year. More than 50 students attended and received schools supplies.
The Calogero and Luke Puma Library is opened 4 hours a day (1:30 pm to 4:30 pm) / 5 days per week.
The courageous students receive a 'token of thanks for helping', such as a pen, book or coloured pencils. Students are enjoying the Khmer stories and playing games. Their favourite activity is puzzles. These classes are held in the library (3 days for English - 2 days for Khmer). The English classes held in the library are focused towards the children who don't know anything about the english alphabet as well as struggling to understand clearly in Khmer.
Many Thanks to everyone who supports this ongoing program through the purchase of a bracelet - especially Rotary Clubs in Ontario, Canada!
A special thanks to Round Square, Socheat Chea (Program Manager) and Bill and Dora Rathbun for their support.
New rural women and girls have been added to the program and will start March 2012.
