Supporting…Leila Antakly and Aziza’s Place in Cambodia

Leave a comment


Leila Antakly is working with Aziza´s Place in Cambodia a grassroots home and learning center for 21 impoverished children who come from the municipal dumpsite and city slums, after spending 4 months volunteering there and teaching English. Aziza´s Place opens the doors for these children and their families with a combination of holisitc programs focused on education, healthy lifestyles, community involvement and the visual arts.

Aziza´s Place staff  and volunteers envision all their children to learn the life tools, skills and values to become productive citizens of their community, economically self sufficient and socially empowered. So far Leila has raised enough money in generous donations from all over the world to cover health insurance for all the children and staff who before had limited access to dr´s and dentist visits. Leila who began her career in fashion at Italian Vogue, now wants to raise awareness for all the different children´s causes she works in, and would also like to encourage everyone to take the time to volunteer.
