A home for disadvantaged children and young people
Created in 1994, the home of Sre Ampil is run by the Khmer Foundation for peace, justice and development. It is located 27km South of Phnom Penh and now houses 40 girls and boys between 8 and 22 years old, orphaned or abandoned by parents too poor to raise them.
Sre Ampil in 4 objectives:
help these children and youth succeed in school by offering support Khmer courses, foreign languages, mathematics, science
transmit their culture of their country by learning the traditional songs, dances and music
empower them by making them contribute to the daily tasks but also collective farm work: rice crop, guarding animals
rebuild a stable environment for these children.
Present since the outbreak, APLC supports medical monitoring of youth hosted by the shelter and additional courses, including Khmer, foreign languages, mathematics and science, to enable them to achieve a better grade.
APLC also pays each year a grant for the home operating expenses.
In addition, during summer, French youth volunteer groups, coordinated by APLC, perform animation assignments, tutoring in English and carry out repair work at Sre Ampil.
