Who am I?

Smiling Hearts is a non-governmental Primary English school. The school is located in the city of Siem Reap and we opened our doors for the first time on the 1st of November 2010. We provide classes free of charge for two neighboring villages and we rely solely on the charity of volunteers and sponsors to remain open and operational.
At Smiling Hearts Association for Children (SHAC) we aim to give Cambodian children hope for a safe and prosperous future. We aim to provide disadvantaged children with a sense of belonging in a stable and loving family environment. We also aim to give the children a chance to enjoy a childhood free from misery and suffering. We currently have approximately 200 students in attendance at Smiling Hearts and our door is always open to local village children in need of support and guidance. Our students range in age from as young as 5 up to the age of 19.

Volunteering !

To our volunteers, the compassion you show to the children we serve is an inspiration for us all. I’ve noticed how you treat everyone with respect and kindness, no matter what the situation is. We know how stressful it can be for the children and their parents who find themselves in need of the services we provide, and your words and actions go a long way towards helping them learn. I just want you to know that your work hasn’t gone unnoticed. Thank you for all that you do.

The weeks lessons are structured as follows
