New faces at Aziza's Place
Every summer, the staff at Aziza’s Place has the most difficult task of selecting children from the local communities to join our holistic programs at Aziza’s Place. After several assessments and outreach visits, we have accepted five children to embark on our programs on a probationary period.
Srey Chen and Sen Ly are sisters who originally knocked on the gate of Aziza’s Place with their cart asking if we had any recyclable items to collect. With no sign of their parents or an adult accompanying them, Socheat, our Community Officer, began asking some questions about their circumstances. Their family live very close to Aziza’s Place, with both parents working on the dumpsite and the young girls work in the city to collect recyclable items.
Samnang, whose name means ‘Good Luck’, and his sister Srey Nech are from the Phum Russey community in Steung Meanchey. Our fifth newcomer is Samphors who is a relative of one of our current students.
We will share photos once probation is over. We wish them all the best at Aziza’s Place and look forward to watching them grow-up!
