Sponsor a Child's education and know that they will grow and smile with a lifetime of possibilities!
Our sponsorship program supports children in a small, semi-rural. community near Siem Reap, Cambodia. Most of their parents, grandparents and guardians are poorly educated and many are unable to read or write. More than half of the families in the community suffer generational poverty and most require emergency assistance. For the children in these families, an education is an unattainable dream and they are targets for exploitation, trafficking and abuse as they try to find ways to survive.
In Cambodia, the school year commences in November and ends the following August. There are complex issues preventing poor children from attending school with any regularity, but there is no doubt that lack of ability to pay for school-related costs is a key issue affecting families living in poverty. Relieving economic pressure by subsidising schooling costs is a relatively simple way to give support to children and make a significant difference to families.
Siem Reap has the potential to provide much employment and prosperity to Cambodia's population in the areas of hospitality, tourism and associated service industries. Unfortunately, a significant percentage of Cambodia's rural children live in such dire poverty that they will never be able to capitalise on these opportunities, because they cannot obtain even a basic education. Without some outside support, these children have little chance of improving their living circumstances and breaking the poverty cycle. Not only is this detrimental to the future of Cambodia's children, but it is also detrimental to the positive and sustainable development of the Country and its communities.
It doesn't take much to change the course of a child's life and give hope, inspiration and personal empowerment to build a brighter future.
