The children learn English using books written by Margarida AIberty, STEP by STEP 1, 2 and 3 which reflect the children's lives in Cambodia. Each book represents the level of literacy and include photos of the children's surroundings, lifestyle and needs.
It's a fun way to learn as it's an exercise book as well as a colouring book . The book covers were made with the children's drawings.
The younger children who don't know their "ABC's", use a book that is purchased at a local bookstore.
The Art Classes are a very fun activity that the children thoroughly enjoy. They learn to use different materials, methods and techniques to create stunning works of art. Professional artists and volunteers have been essential in the success of the classes. The children have created a collection of paintings many of which have been sold in support of Help Children Cambodia for purchasing art supplies. ART GALLERY

TRADITIONAL APSARA DANCE & Music
On Saturdays, the children meet at the local Pagoda for Traditional Apsara Dance and Music classes. The dance and music classes are extremely important for the children to learn and maintain the traditions and customs of their country in preservation of their national heritage. The older and advanced students have been invited several times to perform in many hotel venues and events. The children divide the profits after each performance. It is very rewarding experience for these children most of whom live in very dire conditions.
The Sewing classes provide instruction on basic sewing techniques that start with simple stitches to more complex projects that require a sewing machine. With these techniques the children have produced Rag dolls, Tote bags, accessories, aprons, key rings, purses, wallets, These items are available for purchase in support of Help Children Cambodia.
