Gangnam Style Cambodian version by kids from Taramana NGO

At Taramana, we love to communicate differently.

It is usual to see humanitarian NGOs communicating through emotional stories and pictures displaying underprivileged children in need.

Taramana has recently chosen to work with a young filmmaker, Jean-Luc Nguyen, to produce movies that are deliberately offbeat from what you would expect from kids living in a very difficult environment. They are indeed poor, but they have so much potential and energy once you let them express themselves. It would be a shame not to enjoy so much life and joy, and their natural positivity and happiness.

We are convinced that humanitarian aid should focus on giving children strength and confidence: a bit of help that will help them believe in themselves, give them hope for a brighter future and preserve their dignity under any situation.

You loved them in the video? They indeed got a self-esteem boost, feel more brave and ambitious.

Don’t miss out watching the Behind the Scenes and the kids’ reaction watching the parody. It’s full of laughter and smiles !

Thanks to you, these kids might just benefit of the building of a new Taramana Center (see donation section below)

To fully appreciate the clip, you can watch the original video first : Psy – Gangnam Style

Project “new Taramana Center”

Here’s a new project that is going beyond the kids from the slum of Boeng Salang’s hope: the building of the Taramana Center

In 2012, the organization bought a field of a 1000 meters square, where the kids dream of a new place where they could get medical care, eat, learn and play in a more welcoming place.

This is an ambitious project: 4 classrooms, a computer room, a library, a nursery, a sport field, a music and dance room, a theater… in a construction that respects the environment

The building work starts at the end of 2013 and the grand opening beginning of 2015

Project “Cambodian Gangnam Kids discover the sea !”

These kids hardly ever leave their shanty town. Even going to the city center situated just a short 15 minutes away, is very rare, and when they do, it’s usually to help their parents at work. Most of them have never even seen the sea.

We’d like to reward them for their hard work by giving them an experience they will never forget: a week-end at the beach.

We need your help to make that happen ! Be part of this act of kindness by making a donation and you’ll receive an exclusive video showing how much they appreciated swimming in the sea for the first time and a personalized thank you note. It will make your day for sure !

100% of your donation is going straight to the kids. The money will be spent to pay for transportation, food for the week-end, accomodation and chaperones for the 160 kids

4800 USD funded (100%) | 4800 USD pledged

Project “Medical check-up and vaccinations update”

Following the success of the previous project thanks to our generous donors, we have decided to extend and link the project “week-end to the beach” to a medical project

Regularly, we do a medical check-up of our 160 kids to make sure they are up to date with their vaccinations and prevent any disease from spreading before it’s too late. It would be great to have it done before the field trip to the beach this time. Also, with all the dangers linked to a trip to the beach, it would be the perfect time for our chaperones to attend first aid classes.

We need a global budget of 3000 USD to complete our medical equipment  and buy vaccins, medicines, first aid kits and afford X-ray exams if needed

All the doctors for this mission are working on a volunteer basis

3000 USD funded (100%) | 3000 USD pledged

Project “Shooting of a new video clip by the kids from Taramana”

To the request of our numerous donators, Taramana’s friends and the kids from the organization, we have decided to produce a new video which is gonna be more surprising and spectacular because:

- the theme will highlight the life of impoverished kids from all over the world and their potential to do something amazing if we just believe in them and give them a chance to express themselves

- the kids will take part in all parts of the project: from the storyboard to the choreographies, the choice of the costumes and props.

- the shooting will only take place in the slum of Boeng Salang, North of Phnom Penh, featuring all of its inhabitants

100% of the donations will be used to buy props, costumes and expenses directly needed for the video

On another worldwide famous music hit, this new video clip will be once again very unusual and will let the kids express their point of view of a better world

All the adults for this mission are working on a volunteer basis

2600 USD funded (100%) | 2600 USD pledged
