As done in previous year, Somaly House, former Kompong Cham Rehabilitation and Basic Vocational Skills Training Center celebrated its 64th 1nternational Children Day. Since early morning, the children in school uniforms, dark blue skirts and white short sleeved shirts with nice shoes seemed to be so happy to welcome this special event. We could see their smile and laughter, hanging around the premise at their will. The decorated multi-colored roofs to shelter the children and honorable guests were built a day before the event. A long table full of children gifts was seen to distribute to all the children, center and school. In the office space, some 10 matured girls were wearing dancing uniforms to be ready for a dance, 5 worn in male and the other 5 in female dancing uniforms. They were ready to perform a dance called “Coconut Dance” trained by Ms. Kheng Sochenda, Somaly House Manager and who was the core person to lead the program.

Today is a surprised and solemn day for everyone and in particular for an AFESIP ex-resident who is going to be married !!!!

Dear NGOs partners,
AFESIP friends and colleagues,

It is to kindly inform you that AFESIP Psychology Program of AFESIP Cambodia in cooperation with Trans-cultural Psycho-Social Organization (TPO) will conduct a Mental Health First Aid training to be held at Siem Reap Town, Siem Reap Province, on 21-23 May 2013.

At a 2-day workshop on “sharing and reflection of reintegration mechanism” facilitated by Reintegration Program management, held on 18-19 March 2013 at Phnom Penh Tomdy Center, where a number of reintegrated women from some provinces around the country and more than 50 center residents were invited to participate. During the course of the event, I found that Boramy (alias), one of the reintegrated women from Koh Kong province was very active and clever, especially in the group discussion as well as the presentation. In order to know more about Borany, her business situation and so on, I tried to meet her for an interview.
