Intercultural Fun and Creativity!
It has been a busy season for our Embracelet Students. In November, they spent two afternoons bracelet weaving with students and adults from the RoundSquare organization who were here in Cambodia building a school in Takeo province. Our Cambodian women did not know how to speak English, but a great time and lots of laughs was had by all as they spent time weaving together.

-Weaving Amazing Bracelets!
Seven of the students have now received educational and occupational support detailed in the album link here: Embracelet Students - Fun with RoundSquare Students & Support Received
New rural women and girls have been added to the program and will start March 2012. Many Thanks to everyone who supports this ongoing program through the purchase of a bracelet - especially Rotary Clubs in Ontario, Canada! A special thanks to RoundSquare, Socheat Chea (Program Manager) and Bill and Dora Rathbun for their support. Embracelets is a program of A Mine Free World Foundation and Banyan Learning Tree
Lisa McCoy will be back in Canada the second week in April with many more colorful bracelets, necklaces and fobs that will be sold at upcoming presentations - your support will benefit more rural girls and women like Ven Touch and her daughter (below).
