It started by accident. I had spent months scouring Pursat, asking everyone that I knew, “Where can I find someone who is great with kids, speaks good English, and doesn’t have a job but is looking?” Sure I found some people with some of the skills but the 2 key ones of English and good with kids I couldn’t compromise on.

Through sheer coincidence I was pointed in the direction of Chen, who is the neighbor of a family that we support. She had recently moved back to Pursat from Phnom Phen and was looking to settle back down. Finding Chen in this village that is not even on the map is the equivalent of finding a Brazilian speaking Architect in Kathmandu. We were very lucky indeed.

We started with an interview followed by a couple of days trial. Next was a one month trial and finally on Feb the 1st, Chen came on board as our full time support. As always we are looking to help anyone that we come in to contact with and Chen is no different. Although her English is good we will continue to offer her English lessons and have enrolled her in Computer classes. I believe in training someone so that they can get a job anywhere and then treating them so that they never want to. Thanks Chen for becoming part of the Tuk Tuk Family.

Love everything tuk tuk related and my life in Cambodia. Not an author but don't mind spinning a yarn for the benefit of this project.
