    "Pour un Sourire d'Enfant" (For a Child's Smile) is the name of a French association that has been working in Cambodia for 25 years, but it is above all the extraordinary adventure that a retired French couple, Christian and Marie France des Pallieres, dared to undertake. Some of you may have seen them in the documentary film "Les pépites" (The Nuggets) released in cinemas.
    Their aim is to save the most disadvantaged children, particularly the rag-pickers on the streets of Phnom Penh, who are trying to survive in horrible conditions.
    With no resources of their own, but thanks to their exceptional efforts, they have saved thousands of children.
    Today, 6,500 children are being looked after: fed, cared for, protected, schooled but also trained in a trade so that they can be saved from poverty for good.
    In addition to these children, more than 5,000 young people have already been trained by the association. Thanks to a skilled trade, they are helping to rebuild their country, support their families and, for the most part, have created a loving family.
