SUPPORT FOR CHILDREN OF THE ORPHANAGE OF PAILIN
The Pailin orphanage is a state orphanage, sponsored by a French association for more than 20 years. This orphanage is an real example of education for the children living there.
As the partnership with this association expired, l'AVENIR LEUR SOURIT has decided to support this orphanage and implement actions to promote the education of its children.
The first actions of the L'AVENIR LEUR SOURIT for children are the followings:
after school tutoring,
teaching English (two hours per week),
financing of school materials,
creation of a library,
CREATION OF A LIBRARY
/ MEDIA LIBRARY
In 2020, "L'AVENIR LEUR SOURIT" has established a partnership with the association « In Cultura Veritas ». The purpose of this partnership is to rehabilitate the library and to create a media library inside the orphanage.
To carry out this project, In Cultura Veritas has financed the publishing and the sale of two books: The novel “De l’ombre à la lumière” by Michel Thomas and the book by Yves Ridel “Le petit carnet noir ”, written in collaboration with Michel Thomas.
The funds raised by the sale of these books will be used to buy books and equipment for this media library which will be inaugurated next November and which will have the name of "Yves Ridel Media Library" in memory of this generous humanist man who has spent the last years of his life facilitating access to culture for many poor children from Brazil and Asian countries.
For more information, visit the « In Cultura Veritas » website and don't forget its motto: "Every time you give, it is you who receive!"
Due to COVID 19, this mission has been postponed to 2021
