Weekend Work Projects

The OBV children planting trees

The OBV-VN family members regularly carry out weekend work projects. At times we work in the garden, at others we do house-cleaning. Generally we work for two hours. Afterwards, we can rest, entertain ourselves or read books. During the weekend, in the evening, we watch the movies or take part in karaoke sessions.

The child in Kdiay Kandal

Hi everybody, today I have a story about a girl that was enticed by a boy.

Late one afternoon, TA (the girl's name) was used to going to Church. One day, she went to the church as usual, but unlike the other day, she still didn't come back home yet even darkish night. Her mother worried about her missing daughter so she went near the church where all the lights were turned off already to look for the girl. The mother kept running to girl's friends house to find her but the girl still wasn't there. TA's friends said that she had gone around the church so the mother immediately came back. She found the girl in the back yard and heard the kids' talk in low tone. Turing on the flash light and she saw her daughter was standing with the boy (neighbor) in the bushes.

New school year- Mid-Autumn Festival 2014

New school year 2014

During the summer, although the children only got 1 month off and then resumed again in summer school and the new school year. But every year, on Semtemper 5th, all school across the country are opening and their school is no exception.

A ceremony to welcome the new school year

Unlike the other days, today, mother N woke up early because the house assistants were busy in Cambodia. Mother made breakfast and reminded the kids to dress up in order to attend start of the school year.

In 6 months (from Jan-Jun 2016), the OBV Cambodia family had 5 old children and 3 new children. Actually, we adopted 8 new children but 5 children weren't in the OBV Cambodia family anymore. The first one came back and joined in the OBV in Vietnam (Huong's case). The others were 14-15 years-old. Because of the loss of basic in grade 2 so they weren't interest in schooling. They just liked apprentice.

Unfortunately, the OBV doesn't have any training center for apprentices, so they just lived in the OBV for a short time and came back to their home.
