On Saturday, December 11, 2021, an official inauguration ceremony was held for the public use of a newly built kindergarten located in Teaen Village, Duem Rues Commune, Kandal Steung District, Kandal Province. The ceremony was attended by 63 people from PPSP, young and adult villagers, local authorities, and presided by Mr. Ouch Sao Voeun, Governor of Kandal Stuerng District and Mr. Hiroshi Uematsu, CEO of PPSP.
The kindergarten was a result of the 12th Project of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) of the company, which cost USD 10,759 in total. It has the dimensions of 6m width by 8m length, furnished with classroom furniture and study materials ready for immediate use.
The aim of the 12th CSR Project was to provide opportunity for young children to receive a more established preschool education than the normal home education by elderly grandparents, as well as to assist their young parents to have more time and opportunity to work and generate income. So hopefully, this new kindergarten will contribute to the uplift of early education of small children and betterment of the living conditions of families in the village.
PPSP has started the annual CSR projects and other small charitable activities since 2009, three years after the establishment. Throughout the years the projects include building school libraries and toilets, road repair and pavement, road safety education, Cambodian silk production study support etc. We always keep in mind that helping improve people’s living condition is one of our mission.
