A Volunteer Experience – Anaïs

Hi, I'm Anaïs, I was a communication volunteer from November 2021 to August 2022 here in Siem Reap, Cambodia!

I adapted myself rather quickly to… Read more

Art, gardening and playing : Why are these things important for our programs?

  Playground :  When playing, children discover the concepts of pleasure and sharing. This activity is essential to their fulfillment and allows them to grow with all the necessary confidence.  Playing helps the development of their imagination, to imitate, and to understand the beliefs and intentions of others. It's a fundamental tool for the development of cognitive, emotional, social, and physical plains.
