Phka Villa Support

Project

The Sobbhana Day Care Center, supported by the Sobbhana Foundation and Hearts and Hands for Cambodia, provides a preschool education similar to U.S.A. Headstart for 75 children from ages 3 through 6 years old. There are 8 villages that feed into the Center. These preschoolers are provided two meals a day, and follow a schedule which includes: lessons, free play, bath time, and nap time.

There are several ongoing projects connected to the Center which include: literacy classes for our parents, kitchen gardens, and an all-volunteer English class for our teachers. Future projects which will be implemented once there is funding include a beekeeping project for the Center.
