The NGO´s have identified three main priorities through their researches in the region:

  1. Vocational training.
  2. A hostel/refuge for vulnerable children.
  3. Youth Centre with sport facilities.

In this context and taking account of those priorities, the Salesians of Don Bosco have started the foundation of what is today “Don Bosco Poipet”. In November 2001 was acquired the first piece of land, 28.721 square meters. The construction started in March 2002 by raising the land and building a fence all around it. This work was completed at the end of May 2002. The purposes of the centre are:

1. Shelter homeless children by providing them with a temporary place to stay, a refuge away from the streets of Poipet: Home for children.

2. Offer an alternative to life on the streets by providing a program which includes recreation and sports as well as education: Youth Centre.

3. Implement a reintegration program to facilitate reintegration into the child/youth own family where possible: Social work.

4. Through a program of assistance enable children in need to access education: Literacy centre.

5. Offer a number of individual students the opportunity to access higher education: Scholarships.

6. Providing technical education in relevant identified skills: vocational training.

Every day at Chicago Bears training camp is about the quarterbacks. There is no quarterback controversy -- Mike Glennon is the clear-cut No. 1 -- but plenty of intrigue surrounds Glennon (still a relative unknown), Jordan Howard JerseysMark Sanchez (former high-profile starter) and Mitchell Trubisky (No. 2 overall pick of the 2017 NFL draft). Glennon is clearly on the same page with wide receiver Cameron Meredith, one of Glennon’s favorite targets on the practice field. Arguably Glennon’s best throw of the day happened in the opening 7-on-7 period when he rifled the ball to Meredith, Walter Payton Jerseyswho broke hard toward the right sideline approximately 15 to 20 yards downfield. Glennon put the ball on the money. Glennon later found Meredith over the middle in 11-on-11.Glennon and Meredith did have a misfire on a deep ball in a full-team period. Meredith had a step on a defender downfield on the left seam, but Glennon sailed the ball over his head. Kevin White JerseysGlennon’s ability to hit on those big plays is important. Again, teams are going to stack the box to stop running back Jordan Howard -- second in the NFL in rushing yards in 2016 -- which will create opportunities for the Bears in the vertical passing game. Glennon has to keep defenses honest.Can’t remember a wow moment from Sanchez on Wednesday. Kyle Long JerseysHe spent most of practice with the third team as the Bears wanted Trubisky to get some extra work.

Whoa moment: Sanchez was intercepted in the end zone by rookie Eddie Jackson, Danny Trevathan Jerseyswho rotated over from safety to pick off the ball by the front-corner pylon. Jackson also intercepted Trubisky over the weekend.

Wow moment: First of all, Trubisky spent most of the day working with the second-team offense. That development is noteworthy in itself, although Bears coach John Fox downplayed it after practice.

“Don’t read much into it,” Fox said. “It’s just a matter of getting guys through different centers, different groups. It’s something that we mentioned would happen at some point throughout the camp.”

Trubisky has shown throughout camp that he’s mobile. The rookie successfully climbed the pocket in one team period and found Daniel Braverman wide open over the middle. Trubisky also targeted Kevin White on a couple of plays. Alshon Jeffery JerseysWhite had one of his best practices of camp, catching multiple passes from both Trubisky and Glennon.
