Children from SOS Children’s Village Siem Reap
Up to date we have provided a family to 165 children who 8 of them
have been embraced this year, Malina, Ratha, Raksa, Reasmey, Ty,
Sokheng, Senheng and Touch. They have been provided with all necessary
needs so they always feel belong to their family. They can later
overcome the trauma of losing their environment, friends and family
from where they come. They all have found in the SOS Children’s Village
Angkor Siem Reap a loving home. The youngest child is about three year

benefited adequate training from their various mothers at the village.
The continuous psycho-social support from youth leader and other

different skills. Until now, there are 92 boys who graduated from our

The mothers and Aunts from the SOS Children’s Village are regularly
receiving literacy training Programme in order to help reinforce their
level of understanding, improving their work and responsibilities and
allowing them to better support their children’s care and education.
They also received training on the SOS Village manual and Child
Protection Policy for better understanding.
In order to make children more interested in their life, we always
promote their developments, activities and events which organized
within and outside the village.
On April 26th there was an event to commemorate 24th anniversary
Ceremony of the founder Hermann Gmeiner. We invited the monks and
offered the food to all the monks. We prayed and dedicated the food to
the spirit of the founder Hermann Gmeiner on that day.
On the 1st June, International Children’s Day a joint entertaining
activity was arranged at SOS Nursery in village. All mothers, children
and co-workers participated in the event. All the children get up early
to made up and dress up neatly. All children enjoyed playing with many
games such as banana eating competition, pair running competition and
dancing game competition. There were many questions relating to the
rights of the children are prepared for the children. They can answer
all the questions. The children also received the gifts from the
committee. They all were joyful and know well about the International
Children’s Day. 
During the summer vacation, the children in SOS Children’s Village
Angkor Siem Reap visited Kamping Pouy lake which located about 35
killometre western of Battambang Provincial town and about 215
killometre from Siem Reap Province. Kamping Pouy is the site of both
recreational lake and a massive hand-build stretching between two
hills. As the value of nature we can see the lotus and the rice field
gathering around it. Moreover, they could relax with a traditonal hut
and arranged the picnic food. Fifteen minute after finishing lunch,
they took daved and threw the water each other. Therefore all the
children and mothers were really enjoyed with thier value vacation and
kept all memories along with them back home. they wish to visit there
again in the nearest future.
