Cambodia - volunteering at a day care center

I spent two weeks ( I know, definitely too short) in a day care center in Phnom Penh in Cambodia thanks to Iko Poran association. And it was such a wonderful experience !
I took care of a class of 7 children (5-6years old) from 9:00a.m to 4 p.m, from Monday to Friday. Sometimes I picked them up in their shanty towns at 8 a.m with the staff. It was very hard and sad to see where they live and in such poor conditions, but it was part of the experience and I simply loved their face, their excitation when the association bus ( that we used to pick them up at Home) arrived in front of their living place ( we cant call it "a house").
