New Year, New Website & New Direction!

Welcome to our new website!

It’s been a while since we’ve updated you on what’s going on here at Tiny Toones but we’re still working as hard as ever in our Chbar Ampov centre. We currently have over 100 kids attending daily and with the help of their inspirational teachers, they’re continuing to develop their dancing and academic skills whilst most importantly, still having fun doing it.

We’re also proud to say that we continue to help our kids through our scholarship program. This has enabled us to support them in accessing the public school system, some of them for the first time, and they’re now working hard towards a brighter future.

These are exciting times for us as July 2016 saw the opening of our new social enterprise, The Cool Lounge in the Russian Market area of Phnom Penh. This is a food and drinks venue staffed by former Tiny Toones students and includes recording and dance studios on the first floor.  Tiny Toones would like to say a big thank you to the Global Fund for Children, without their funding and support we wouldn’t have been able to make The Cool Lounge a reality.

Soon we will be launching hip-hop dance classes for the general public here so keep your eyes on the website for more information. Profits from The Cool Lounge will help to sustain our work here at Tiny Toones. If you’re in town we’d love it if you come down to see us, check out our Facebook page for more information.

We continue to be humbled by the support we receive from around the world.  We were recently contacted by Alex Ciuro, a student from the UK who has been inspired by the work we are doing at Tiny Toones.  Alex took part in the Siem Riep half marathon on December 4th and is donating all of his sponsorship money to Tiny Toones.  Once he’s had a well-earned rest, Alex will update us all here on how he got on.

As ever, we’d like to thank you all for your continued support of the work that we do at Tiny Toones, we couldn’t do it without you.

We would also like to give special thanks to Stephane Ellis, our talented web designer from Vendelis who volunteered his time to help build the website. We couldn’t have done it without him.

Please take some time to look around the site and if you have any feedback, do let us know.

Beeside Donations

There was a special surprise at Tiny Toones today as BeeSide from Long Beach, California came to our centre today with food, drink and bags for each of our kids. These were donated by BeeSide and their supporters and we’re very grateful for their support. Thanks to their generosity, the kids went home full and happy!

Merry Christmas!

We had our Christmas Party at Tiny Toones on Friday December 23rd.  All the kids had a great time and they all got a present from Santa as well. He even had time to show us a few of his dance moves, considering the heat and his big red suit he did a great job! As well as Santa, we had some live music, DJ’ing, dancing, games and a meal for the kids. Check out our photos of the day.

Thanks to everyone that donated their time to help us on the day and also for the presents, we had a great collection this year and the kids went home very happy and full of festive cheer.

Merry Christmas from all of us at Tiny Toones!

Thank You to David Choe

Here at Tiny Toones we want to say a huge thank you to renowned street artist David Choe for all of his support.

Over the last year David has supported us financially through his foundation but has also visited our centre here in Chbar Ampov.  Whilst here, David took the time to paint an incredible piece of art in our courtyard for our Tiny Toones kids and staff to enjoy.  As you can see from the photo, we all love it and are very grateful for the contribution, thank you David, you are welcome back anytime!
