Designed specifically for children
Covering an area of 80,000 sq ft, Hope Village Prey Veng is designed specifically for children. This includes a sports area for football, volleyball or badminton, computer rooms, classrooms and a large multipurpose hall.
With over 70 children, it is lively and buzzes with activities and much love. A full complement of staff looks after the children, overseen regularly by staff from OHF HQ in Singapore.
Children learn entrepreneurial skills
Children are encouraged to learn entrepreneurial skills as finding a job is not easy and the majority of Khmers are self employed. Our food stall projects during the school holidays teaches the children to make and sell muffins among other items.
We teach them how to calculate the cost and work out the gross profits and selling prices. They also learn about marketing, what can or cannot be sold and learn to change their products to suit the market.
The children will then keep the profits and many are excited to be able to earn money themselves!
We encourage them to develop their talents
OHF takes its responsibility to look after the poor and abandoned children seriously. We encourage them to develop their talents, be it in music, arts or sports.
Children are taught board games like Risk and Monopoly. It is amazing that our boys love to play a military strategy game like Risk! The children also excel in games like Othello, Connect 4 and Uno.
The children learn to use computers
A computer room is not just a room full of computers. A lot of effort is required to run a computer room.
The computer must have the appropriate software, there must be timetables and lesson plans for children from age 3 to 20. The computers must be maintained and rules have to be followed to prevent viruses and misuse of the computers.
The children take to the computers like ducks to water!
Character development and teaching values are very important. Children keep their dormitories neat and clean. Tuition classes are held daily to help the children catch up on their school work.
Most important of all, the children have to feel loved and cared for and given every opportunity to improve themselves.
Opportunities to earn
From sports to growing vegetables, the children are also given the opportunity to learn and earn.
A personal bank book keep tracks of what they earned and some children could have as much as US$400 when they leave the home!
This money will help them transit from the home to the outside world.
