06 Mar Getting Our Groove on with Tiny Toones
Posted at 12:01h in Southeast AsiaCambodia’s got a special place in Operation Groundswell’s heart. Why you might ask? It’s home to one of our coolest and longest running partners: Tiny Toones! Tiny Toones is a unique non-profit organization that uses break-dancing and the culture of hip-hop to engage, inspire and educate marginalized and underprivileged youth in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. Their mission is to provide a safe, positive environment for at‐risk youth to channel their energy and creativity into the arts and education, empowering them to build self‐confidence in their daily lives, aim for better employment possibilities, and feel supported pursuing their dreams. Every summer we are lucky enough to work closely with them on what has become a yearly tradition…our leadership retreat! Our fearless and awesome program leaders, Samnang and Amanda, have made this special video for you to get an inside look of our time with Tiny Toones in years past.
