Выхад за межы Ангкор Ват: Green Gecko дзіцячага дома

Вопыт

Siem Reap is famous for housing Angkor Wat: the eighth wonder of the world, Cambodia’s most prized possession, and the epicentre of huge national pride. Angkor Wat is the most-featured ruin in the Angkor UNESCO World Heritage Site; and it was also the set for Lara Craft, Tomb Raider. There is no contest that touring Angkor Wat is a special experience, and if you visit some local community projects benefiting the Khmer (Cambodian) people, Siem Reap will always mean something more to you than just a tourist site.

Сучасны, раскошны гатэль у цэнтры горада Сием-Рып, Hotel De La Paix мае сапраўды цёплую і ўтульную атмасферу, і знаходзіцца ў падпарадкаванні харызматычны датчанін імя Крысціян, які, як гарачы аб гатэлі, паколькі ён пра многіх грамадскіх праектаў Гатэль падтрымлівае. Hotel De La Paix з'яўляецца хіп і сучаснае месца для адпачынку пасля дня Ангкор Ват руіны, і Крысціян быў досыць ласкавы, каб запрасіць мяне разам з некалькімі іншымі гасцямі, каб наведаць намаганні, што Hotel De La Paix з'яўляецца гонарам адданыя.

First stop was the sewing school, created to teach young women, and occasionally a young man, from rural areas outside of Siem Reap. For ten months, the students learn to design and create different articles of clothing as well as learn the skills required to run their own tailoring business. While living in Siem Reap, they are given room and board as well as sexual education and spiritual classes. Each student is given a sewing machine upon graduation to ensure they are equipped to begin their business when they return to their respective villages. The program was created by a thirty-five-year-old female manager from Hotel de la Paix who learned that most women in rural Cambodia were dying by the time they were her age. Their bodies gave out from the sheer exhaustion of bearing five or six children while simultaneously engaging in the extreme physical labour necessary for survival in rural areas, such as brick making and tending to crops and rice fields.

The next destination was the Green Gecko orphanage (http://www.greengeckoproject.org) where, for the most part, the more than seventy children that live there are so happy and healthy it feels more like summer camp (although an orphanage like this is probably rare). Before coming to Green Gecko, most kids are found impoverished and begging on the streets, often with babies on their hips to attract money from tourists. Their future looks bleak, with most kids turning to prostitution as they get older. Many have abusive families while others have lost their families entirely. At Green Gecko they are given nutritious meals and lodging, as well as the tools they need to survive as self-sufficient, empowered people. The kids learn to cook, clean, engage in regular hygiene, and develop routines for bedtime, meals, study and play. They are taught English, Khmer culture, dance, music, drama, crafts, computer studies, martial arts, and sports. Green Gecko strives to help the children build strong minds and self-esteem, and to discover passion through activities, skills and talents that bring them a natural inner joy. And as kids everywhere should know—these Green Gecko children know how to play.

Doctors frequent Green Gecko to ensure the orphanage stays healthy, although the kids are thriving so medical visits are happening less often. With most children coming from abusive backgrounds, psychological counseling is important at Green Gecko. Classes in sex education and HIV are taught. There is also a focus on healthy, non-abusive relationships and gender equality for women. Green Gecko works with the families to re-integrate the children back into their homes if and when they can be safe, healthy and harm-free; or into the world as independent, well-prepared young adults.

Мне пашчасціла прысутнічаць на дзень дзеці былі прымаючага пяцьдзесят ровары і школьныя сумкі ў праграме выступіў MasterCard і Hotel De La Paix. На працягу апошніх двух гадоў, былі тысячы ровары і сумкі падораныя ад гэтай ініцыятывы. Большасць дзяцей жывуць па меншай меры, у пяці кіламетрах ад школы, і павінны ісці туды трапіць, у выніку чаго многія не пайсці на ўсё. З зялёнымі Geckoâ € ™ з â € œteach чалавеку Fisha €? не філасофія, дзіця з роварам і транспарціроўкі ў школу больш не дзіця з нагода, каб не атрымаць адукацыю.

Seeing the uninhibited excitement and pure joy over the bikes did not leave a dry eye; a moment not easily forgotten. Before leaving, there was a final treat: a beautiful, traditional Khmer performance danced by several of the girls while a handful of boys played drums and various indigenous instruments. Although there is a celebratory mood at Green Gecko, it is not all rainbows and sunshine every day. There is, however, a genuine feeling of hope, future and possibility with an unshakeable sense of community and solidarity. Green Gecko is not just an orphanage; it is a home, a school, and a family.
