Bloom is an educational/training development project that works directly with vulnerable young women in Cambodia, providing them with valuable vocational skills that lead to long-term employment, dignity and value.

Currently Bloom conducts hospitality training courses that include classes in café/barista skills, cookery, hygiene, workplace safety and specialist courses in cake art and paper craft.

All training is done through games, role play, and practical exercises to ensure girls from all educational backgrounds can participate.

The Training Centre also operates a thriving training café in Phnom Penh for its students and employees, featuring world class 'cake art' created by the talented girls of Bloom. These cupcakes and incredible cake designs have taken Phnom Penh by storm and enabled many girls the chance to find careers as high end cake decorators.

Bloom provides all students with Khmer & English literacy training as many girls have never had the chance to go to school. The training is also done through games, role play, and practical exercises.
