Would you like to know what our Social Support department does on a monthly basis? Let us show you their activities of the last quarter in a few numbers.

Child Protection Program:

  • We have raised awareness through workshops on children’s rights, child protection, and our Child Protection Program with community members in 8 villages in Prek Preasdach, Battambang.​ Altogether, we reached 326 people, giving them a better idea of the importance on children’s rights!
  • We have conducted the quarterly child club meeting for 27 students. Child club is a group of students who work on making the campus and life of students smoother in a variety of ways.
  • We have run the quarterly parents meeting discussing topics of child rights, protection, and domestic violence. 21 parents attended the event.

Other activities:

  • We have also welcomed volunteer osteopaths to support our physiotherapist to be able to give further treatment to our performers, student and staff.

Our aim is non-stop protection and support of our students and their families in every possible way. But we would love to be giving even more support to our students. To be able to do that, we need everybody’s support. Every little bit helps! When you support the well-being of a student, you support our mission of changing lives through the arts!
