Check out how smart the students and staff look in their new uniforms! Recently all of the Serve Cambodia staff were provided with new uniforms, including the managers, teachers, cooks, cleaners and the ladies who work on the sewing project. This gives a feel of unity for the staff and looks great, as you can see!

The children at TLC and HOH were also excited to get their new shirts – but most excited of all were the students at Light of Hope education centre because this is the first time they have had uniforms! This shows them very visibly that they are included as part of the Serve Cambodia family. It is also an encouraging sign of things to come for Light of Hope, as this education will be developed and supported further in the future, once all of the HOH children have sponsors. As you can see, the education centre is already bringing a lot of hope and joy to these children.

Another encouraging thing about these new uniforms is that the ladies in the Happy Village sewing project were able to use their new t-shirt making skills and upgraded sewing machines to sew the HOH shirts. They also sewed the elegant blue shirts now worn by Serve Cambodia’s female staff. They will continue to receive more training, and in future the plan is for them to sew and screen print all of the Serve Cambodia uniforms for the staff and the three education centres. This is great for their skill development, and also great for the sustainability of Serve Cambodia’s projects.

Thankyou, as always, for your continued support which helps to make all of Serve Cambodia’s work possible. Praise God that the education centres continue to grow and develop every day, and that the sewing project is moving from strength to strength!

Recently the children at Serve Cambodia’s education centres have been making special thankyou cards to send to their sponsors in Australia and around the world. They wrote and decorated messages of love and appreciation to their sponsors, who have made it possible for them to attend either Tarsha’s Legacy Centre or Harvest of Hope.

The children value their education so highly, and can see that they now have a bright future to look towards. We would also like to say thankyou to all of our supporters and sponsors who are helping to give these children hope and a future. We praise God for each of you!

In a few weeks time sponsors can look forward to seeing one of these special cards arriving in their letter box! If you don’t have a sponsor child but would like to support and encourage one of the children still in need of sponsorship – please send an email to enquiries@servecambodia.net so that Sam and Sochea can organise this for you.

We would like to wish everyone a Happy Khmer New Year from Fellowship of Hope! Officially, Khmer New Year was celebrated from the 13th to the 15th of April, but the occasion was celebrated for much longer than just the 3-day public holiday. The children at TLC and HOH were also excited to celebrate with their classmates and teachers. This was a time all the children and staff could have fun together before travelling to their ‘home towns’ in the countryside for a week-long holiday with extended family.

At TLC, students had a great time playing many different games together. Some of these were traditional Khmer games which have been played for many years in the past, and some activities like the three legged race and games with balloons and soccer balls were new ones to try. The children really enjoyed all the games and lined up with excitement to wait for their turn.

At HOH, the students also enjoyed games with balls and balloons. Plus they played some games which were all about teaching the children team unity and how to work together. The games were followed by a big celebration meal. As the children come from poor families, it is a huge delight for them to join in with a large group celebration like this one.

Thanks again to everyone who has supported Serve Cambodia’s work over the years. We are so grateful to God that so many children can be blessed through the TLC and HOH education centres.
