About Our Sponsorship Program

SPONSOR A CHILD'S EDUCATION AND KNOW THAT THEY WILL GROW AND SMILE WITH A LIFE 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.

YOUR SPONSORSHIP PROVIDES:

  • All the essentials your sponsor child needs for a year at school...uniforms, shoes, books, writing materials, water bottles and a backpack; 


  • Food support to families at key festival times during the year; 


  • A fund that can provide additional support programs such as health checks for children, hygiene awareness education, additional teacher resources or improvements to the learning environment, subject to amounts available.


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.

How Can You Become Involved?

 

We want our sponsorship program to be a rewarding experience for both the Sponsor and the Child. 


The first step to becoming involved is to make your donation using the link on this page.  Once your donation is received, our team will allocate your sponsorship place to a child who has registered for the program but is not yet sponsored.  Please note, this process can take 2-3 weeks for us to complete.  A photo and profile about the child will then be sent to you for you to keep.  An update of the child's progress will be provided through the year and you will have an opportunity to continue sponsorship of the same child in the following year(s).   You will be the only sponsor assigned to your sponsor child and you are welcome to sponsor several children if you wish.


When arranging payment of your donation, you can elect to make a one off contribution of $120 AUD (per child) for the year, or recurring monthly contributions of $10 AUD (per child) per month.  You will be able to select the recurring option during the payment process.
