We feel strongly about continuously providing our staff with new knowledge and skills to perform better in their jobs. Each Saturday, we hold workshops so we can have open communication with our staff and also consistently increase their skills.
Our staff learns about topics such as teaching methodology, child protection, teamwork, management, leadership, and other general knowledge to assist them to better their jobs, keep them motivated, and their professional lives. All our workshops are held by our staff, governing board members or professional Khmer volunteers.

1. Managing Performance

“It is new to me as my previous workplaces, never have a regular staff development workshop like this. There are many benefits for me through attending the workshops. I have gained new general knowledge and skills to better my job. It reminds me of what I have learned. Also, I feel great with my teamwork as we learn and share from each other.” Mon – our new Education and Community Assistant.
