In February 2011, puppeteer Kay Yasugi will be volunteering in Siem Reap, Cambodia for the the 5th annual Giant Puppet Parade for children. The Giant Puppet Project, Siem Reap, is a local children’s community arts project – the largest of its kind in the province – providing a creative platform for disadvantaged children to foster and promote self-expression and confidence through art. This event for underprivileged children in Siem Reap creates an important sense of community building, establishes teamwork and offers pride and commendation. The children from the local schools, hospitals and orphanages will come together to create giant puppets which incorporate educational, cultural or ecological themes such as road safety, endangered species, hygiene, local cultural appreciation and environmental awareness. Pupperoos would love your support for this fantastic and valuable project.
