Detailed Itinerary Of Phare: The Cambodian Circus Show
Phare Ponleu Selpak (PPS) is a non-governmental organization established in 1994 by 8 young Cambodians who spent their childhood in refugee camps at the Thai border. Aware of the importance of preserving their culture and Khmer art, the founders developed social and educational programs for children with difficult situations including orphans, street kids and trafficked children.
