Following the advice from the Cambodian government, all PKH vocational training, English classes and before-and-after school care activities continue to be closed.
2 of our expatriate trainers, Lim Wei Inn & Joyce Carino, have returned safely to Singapore on 21 June and 22 July, respectively. They continue to keep in touch with their students through WhatsApp chat.
New E-Learning Programmes
PKH introduced new ways of engaging the children and youth during this time. New TV monitors have been installed at PKHES and PKH Trang, so that the village children can benefit from Khmer and English e-learning programmes.
As PKHES is located within the grounds of Kampong Speu Orphans Centre (KSOC), PKHES has started a pilot project to teach English to 25 of the KSOC children in small classes of not more than 10, using these e-learning programmes.

PKH Trang has also started to teach 50 of the village children each day, in small classes, using the same programmes. We hope that the children will find these programmes beneficial, as the teachers use them to enrich their classes during this time.

Upkeep of the Centres
The staff and trainers at PKH have been working hard to continually maintain the grounds, and we attach some photos of the work below.
