Susann and Marco helped in 2013 to bring our learning center in Takeo, Cambodia to life. Since then, their commitment for “their” center hasn´t ceased. This May, they revisited Takeo.

On an average Tuesday in May pretending a skype call we rode our bikes to the learning center in Takeo with a smile on our faces. It has been two years that we moved to Takeo for five months to fill the learning center with life.

We looked into suprised faces, shed tears of joy and it was like we had never been gone. Still, we felt the progress, the development the center had made. It is sooooo beautiful to see what Sokoeurn and his team have achieved and continue to achieve. Two years ago, there were three half-full English courses. Now we saw four stuffed classrooms everyday from 4pm to 7pm. There are many new students visiting the learning center and many known faces that still come to the library and attend activities. Whereas two years ago we managed to talk to many younger students being facilitated by a third person, we now could talk in English to them. Teachers asked us to visit their English courses and give them recommendations how to improve them. They were immediately implemented in the courses.

We were lucky to meet Vannak Pen in Takeo, Head of Learning Center in Tonloab, to visit the learning center in Angtasom and to see again Sreydieb, Head of Learning Center of the first Mobile Learning Center.

Alltogether it was a great time. Thhough it was short it was very intensive. We left with a good feeling…one week later – on our bikes, a smile on our faces and some tears of joy.

Thank you all for this wonderful time. In our hearts we are connected to you – forever. Whenever you need help we will try our best to support you. You rock!
