Tiny Toones Leading the Field in Sport and Education

For the second year running, Tiny Toones is one of only three projects from across the globe to be shortlisted for the UNICEF Sport for Education Award at the Beyond Sport Awards. BeyondSport is a global organisation that promotes, develops and supports the use of sport to create positive social change across the world.

Almost 400 projects applied to the Beyond Sport Awards and we are honoured to have been selected as one of the strongest projects once more. Last year’s summit in London drew the likes of Muhammed Ali, David Beckham and Tony Blair (as well as our own KK). The award ceremony this year will take place in Philadelphia in September – keep your fingers crossed for us.

DJ Koflow (Singapore)

In early 2013, Tiny Toones was fortunate enough to be visited by the internationally acclaimed DJ Koflow. Hailing from Singapore, Koflow’s won a number of awards including first runner up at the Singapore DMC Champion 2003, Juice Magazine Best New DJ 2003, Best Musician at the Nike StreetStyle Awards in 2004, Honorable Mention for Juice Magazine Best Independent DJ 2004 and first place at the Heineken Thirst Singapore 2005.

He put on a sensational performace in the courtyard of the Tiny Toones centre. Afterwards, he pulled aside some of the music teachers to show them some tricks of the trade and inspire them with his talent.

Recently, some of the Tiny Toones staff were interviewed and featured in a news article published by the Christian Science Monitor. Founder KK and General Manager Shhort spoke to the CSM reporter about the Tiny Toones program, the challenges, the successes and about making a difference in the lives of children and young people in Cambodia.
