The Smiling Hearts Association for Children opened on the
1st November 2010.
The Smiling Hearts Association for Children is a non-governmental Primary English school. The school is located in the city of Siem Reap and we opened our doors for the first time on the 1st of November 2010. We provide classes free of charge for two neighboring villages and we rely solely on the charity of volunteers and sponsors to remain open and operational.
The main industry in Siem Reap is tourism, with the magnificent temples of Angkor in close proximity. The ability to speak English is a key skill for many young people in Siem Reap. This is due to the fact that the majority of the employment opportunities are within the tourism sector, and without English, our children will have very limited employment prospects.
Our aim is to offer children a base for a better future with our English classes. At Smiling Hearts we teach the children in a stable and loving environment and with our on site playground the children are free to feel joy and to be free from misery - at least for a few hours a day.
We have a number of long term goals for our association including the provision of computer classes. We also aspire to build an Orphan Centre in Watsvay Village, Salokomreak Commune, Siem Reap, where our school is located.
We are always looking for volunteers, so if you can help us in any way, do get in touch.
