Help Children Cambodia


My name is  Ana Margarida Alberty and I've been a passionate teacher all my life, having founded my own language school in Estoril, Portugal.
In 2012 one of my ultimate dreams finally came true when I decided to take a month off and volunteer in Asia. I came across an organisation called Real Gap Experience and right away I fell in love with Cambodia. I spent an amazing 4 weeks in Siem Reap, going to a local Orphanage every day to teach English and Crafts to 30 lovely children who made me feel I had found another family away from home... 
Since then I've been traveling to Cambodia twice a year and staying longer every time I go.   I stay at a small Hotel in Siem Reap, (a 5 minute walk from downtown), called Petit Temple Hotel.  Love it there. I started this project, spending many days traveling around with a TUK TUK as I thought it was the best way to reach more families in need.  In the rice fields and in the floating villages people are so underprivileged. They live in very hard conditions, with no clothes, no beds, no adequate food and no drinkable water and no access to learning English.  But they are all beautiful, always eager and happy to learn.  
This is the most rewarding experience one can have....and we wish other people could have it too...We are working hard to make this cause known, to reach out to other groups or individuals who share our vision and wish to support this worthy cause.
Thank you!

BUTTERFLY EDUCATIONAL CENTRE WAS  founded in February 2016. Approximately 120 children receive free classes in subjects such as: English, It, Sewing, Arts, Music and Traditional Dancing. The Centre is located in Siem Reap and is open all day long from Monday to Saturday providing different classes and activities to the children. Big garden, outside classrooms, Library and Playroom are also available on site. 
ANA BANANA TUK TUK SCHOOLS travel to countryside teaching English to local village children. We bring them pencils, colouring books, crayons, stickers, story books, toys, clothes and food. We sing songs, too. Nowadays, 3 teachers take the tuk-tuks out to 5 rural villages where they teach every weekend throughout the year.
BUTTERFLY BOOKS , the mobile library has been up and running for a while in the countryside as well, bringing books and joy to the children in the rural areas.
