Cambodia – Tiny Toones.

Tiny Toones is a drop in centre in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. Its 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.

ASE helped finance The Tiny Toones education and creative programmes to welcome all youth and encourage them to participate in free daily classes in the following:

  • Breakdancing
  • Hip‐Hop song writing andrecording
  • DJ’ing
  • Rapping
  • Visual arts
  • English literacy
  • Khmer literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Computer skills
  • Harm Reduction (basic hygiene,drug prevention, HIV)
  • Life skills

ASE’s relationship with Tiny Toones began in January 2011 with provision of ASE Resources to undertake a five week assignment. The initial brief was to conduct an assessment of Tiny Toones and to build the capability and capacity of the finance function. The assessment was completed quickly and ASE resources moved on to coach the finance function to develop and implement reporting and budgeting capabilities. ASE continues to support this worthwhile charity.
