"Education is free,
But going to school is not."
Give the gift of hope. Be a child sponsor.
Sponsor A Child Programme
Education is free for all children in Cambodia, but as many as 150,000 children drop-out from school in the Primary education sector. Why?
Children in rural area like Prey Veng have to do ad-hoc errands work to earn money to buy food. Children as young as 6 years old are hired as laborers, working in the fields, tending water buffalos or selling fruits to make a living. They often drop out from school because of the lack of money to buy stationary, uniforms and have to share textbooks with other students.
How are we helping?
Sponsor A Child is a programme that aims to reduce the drop-out rate for children in Primary school by giving uniforms, stationary and textbooks to students who cannot afford it.
To encourage their guardians to send them to school instead of earning money through ad-hoc errands, we provide food packs every two months if the child attend school regularly.
How it works?
Partnering with primary schools, we identify the children who are not attending school regularly. We work with community leaders to identify those who have dropout from school.
We will make house visits for evaluation and confirmation that the child qualifies to be sponsored. Upon receiving your donation, a child will be assign to you in 3-4weeks.
What will the beneficiaries receive?
With every child sponsored, the child and his/her family will received a bi-monthly food pack containing rice, cooking oil, salt and fish sauce. School uniforms, textbooks, stationary, shoes and exercise books will be given to the child.
