Name: Na*
Age: 3 years old
Child ID: C279

“It takes a village” is the perfect expression to use for Na and her elder sister. Instead of being raised by their parents, the 2 girls were raised by kind neighbours and villagers in the village. Na’s father appears only when he needs money and then disappears shortly after he’s managed to borrow money, and during his disappearance remains uncontactable. Na’s mother, who is a farmer, constantly struggles to put food on the table and never has time to look after Na and her elder sister. Having just given birth 9 months ago, Na’s mother focuses all her energy on her newborn baby. The 2 girls live in their grandfather’s house, but her grandfather is partially blind and thus unable to provide full care to the girls.

The villagers in the village have reached out to Hope Village as they have heard the success stories of past children who have graduated from Hope Village. They have witnessed these Hope Village alumni go on to lead successful lives after graduating. Filled with concern that the girls will be eventually abandoned by their struggling mother, they have requested for the 2 girls to be enrolled in Hope Village in hopes that they will get 3 regular meals a day, proper care and a chance at going to school.

Name: Eng*
Age: 5 years old
Child ID: C283

Eng’s mother disappeared 5 months ago, and has remains uncontable since. His father owns no land and has to work as a labourer in order to earn money to support the family. However, as his father earns barely enough for food and water, Eng and his brother are both unable to go to school. Since the Covid-19 pandemic happened, Eng’s father lost his job and the family has thus sunk even further into poverty.

They live on borrowed land from the government that has no title deed. It is a land reserved by the government for redevelopment such as to build a road, however since they have been living there are a long time and the government does not have any current plans to develop the land, they have been allowed to continue their stay there. This however puts them at risk of losing their house anytime should the government decide to develop the land in the future.

Name: Dav*
Age: 6 years old
Child ID: C284

Dav and his baby brother was brought up single-handedly by their mother after their father ran away and disappeared. Dav’s mother had been an orphan herself since the age of 7, and grew up in a village orphanage. Upon his father’s disppearance, Dav’s mother tried to seek help from his father’s family, but was rejected by them as they felt that she came from a poor background. Dav’s mother was then offered a place of residence at a school dormitory for teachers, in exchange for her being a cleaner for the dorm. For the past 5 months Dav and his baby brother has been living there with her.

We were alerted to her situation by a Hope Village staff who has been watching her collect rubbish along the road to sell, all while carrying her infant and Dav following quietly beside her. Our staff approached Dav’s mother and had a short interview with her to find out about her situation. After some discussion, we decided to enroll Dav to help lessen her burden as well as help give Dav an opportunity to go to school so that in future he can find a good job and help his mother and brother.

Child ID: C262

Struggling to make a living as general workers, Sa’s parents had to leave him behind with his grandmother so that they could go to Phnom Penh to work.

Sa currently stays with his unemployed grandmother, who also helps to look after 4 of her other grandchildren. Due to the difficult financial situation they face, Sa’s parents are unable to send any money back to Sa’s grandmother. In order to ensure that Sa can grow up healthily and have a better future, his parents decided to reach out to OHF for help.

Name: Bott*
Age: 9 years old
Child ID: C274

When Bott’s father was alive, he worked as a construction worker and was the sole breadwinner of a family of 8. Unfortunately, his father passed away two months ago, and since then life has been difficult. Bott and his 4 other siblings live with their grandmother, who also helps to look after his mentally disabled mother. His mother’s mental disability caused her to reject her children and rendered her unable to work. Bott’s grandmother had no choice but to retire early from her job as a village assistant to look after the family.

Having no form of income, Bott’s grandmother can only seek help from neighbours and relatives. Neighbours share rice and clothing with them and some relatives help to contribute money for milk to feed Bott’s 9 month old sibling.

Bott and two of his siblings, who will be recruited together, have expressed that they really want to go to school and that they would like to stay at Hope Village where they are able to study.

Name: Pi*
Age: 10 years old
Child ID: C276

Pi grew up in a single parent family. His father disappeared a few years ago and had yet to be found. His mother, taking on the burden of being the sole breadwinner, left for the capital of Phnom Penh to work as a factory worker. Since he was 6 months old, Pi was entrusted under the care of his elderly grandparents who are both farmers.

Pi’s mother does not send money home regularly. Once in a while, she will send home an estimated amount of USD$12.32 for both Pi and his grandparents. However, the amount she send home is barely enough to buy food for one. Being unable to properly feed or send his grandchild to school, Pi’s grandfather decided to reach out to our Hope Village staff. He hopes that Pi will have a better future staying at Hope Village, with 3 meals a day, a good environment to grow up in and a chance to go to school.

Name: Sey*
Age: 11 years old
Child ID: C277

Abandoned at 2 years old, Sey has never known his parents. His parents had a divorce and then both proceeded to have their own individual families, leaving Sey behind with his elderly grandparents, both past 60 years of age. His grandparents are both famers, owning a small rice field, but little income comes from what they harvest. The small rice field is barely enough to cover their daily meals. Sey’s grandparents earn some income by helping a relative to look after cows, and also get USD$49.24 per month of allowance from their married daughter who owns a Khmer cake street stall outside of a factory in the capital of Phnom Penh.

Any money or rice they have is used to feed themselves as well as Sey and his 2 cousins. Worrying about his future, Sey’s grandparents reached out to Hope Village for help. When our local staff arrived at the village, we were impressed at Sey’s hunger for learning. He was very enthusiastic about reading to us, and had expressed keen interest in going to school.

Name: Vann*
Age: 12 years old
Child ID: C261

After the death of her father, Vann’s mother struggled to support the family of 6. However, as she is elderly and in poor health, it made finding a stable job impossible. The only job she is able to do is rice farming. She picks up whatever rice grains are dropped or missed during harvest, dries it under the sun and tries to sell what she can.

Vann’s eldest sister is married, and no longer contributes to the family. Her second eldest brother is working in Phnom Penh and sends home USD$50 per month. The allowance is barely enough for daily necessities, and definitely not enough to send her Vann and her two other siblings to school. In order to give Vann a better environemnt to grow up in as well as the opportunity to go to school, Vann’s mother reached out to our staff at Hope Village for help.

Name: Chan*
Age: 12 years old
Child ID: C248

After the death of his father, Chan’s eldest brother followed soon after in a traffic accident. The task of being the sole breadwinner then fell on the shoulders of Chan’s mother. She had to leave her children behind with their grandmother, and move to the capital of Phnom Penh to work as a factory worker. She earns only USD$50 a month, and send back whatever she can spare to her family back at the village. Her income however is not enough to support her children and their grandmother. Chan and his siblings also could not go to school.

Chan’s grandmother health was deteriorating rapidly, and she feared that she could not look after her grandchildren anymore. She then reached out to Hope Village, so that she can enroll her grandchildren in our home, where they will be taken good care of.

Sponsor a Child – Empower Poor Village Kids

What is Hope Village Prey Veng?

We are a children’s home designed specifically for the poor children of Cambodia.

Our staff are alerted to cases in the community where children are abandoned, orphaned or living in terrible conditions. Some poor families reach out to us for help because they are unable to provide the best for their children and wish for them to have a better environment to grow up in and an opportunity at education.

Interviews with the families are conducted to check for eligibility as well as on the condition of the child. The parents / guardians must give their consent in the enrollment of the child to Hope Village.

Hope Village Building

Hope Village is equipped with a variety of facilities specifically for child development. Computers rooms, fields and sports facilities, classrooms, dormitories, multi-purpose hall and more!

Children and Staff in Dormitory

Children are given a chance to grow up in a loving environment, with proper meals and an opportunity at education. The child sponsorship donation pays for all the food, utilities, education, medical bills, maintenance of the home and a host of other expenses incurred by the home. Your sponsored child receives your donation in both direct and tangible benefits.

The children are also exposed to entrepreneurial and learning opportunities such as:

    • Food stall projects during the school holidays, where they learn how to do business
    • Taking care of their own vegetable garden
    • Going to the markets to help buy food for meals

The children each have their own personal bank books which will keep track of all they have earned from projects, chores and other ad-hoc activities. The money will be given to them when they graduate Hope Village, to which they can use to help them navigate the world.
