“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 in Cambodia, yet as many as 150,000 children drop-out from school in the Primary education sector. Why?
Children in rural areas like Prey Veng often have to take up odd jobs to earn money for food. From as young as 6 years old, children work as laborers, in the fields, tending water buffalos or selling fruits to make a living. They often drop out of school because of the lack of money to buy stationery, uniforms and textbooks.
How are we helping?
Sponsor A Child aims to reduce the drop-out rate for children in Primary school by giving uniforms, stationery and textbooks to students who cannot afford it.
We provide food packs every two months if the child attends school regularly. This encourages their guardians to send them to school instead of sending them to earn money via ad-hoc errands, which are not a stable source of income for the children, and have little to no learning value.
The child’s attendance at school is regularly monitored to ensure that the child is consistently attending classes.
How it works?
We partner with primary schools and community leaders to identify children who are not attending school regularly, or have dropped out of school.
We conduct 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, stationery, shoes and exercise books will be given to the child.

- Who are we?
Operation Hope Foundation (OHF) is a Singapore registered charity, and has offices and operations in
Cambodia and Nepal. OHF’s mission is to transform the lives of orphans and the rural poor in developing
countries through community development projects where cost-benefit ratios are proprly managed to ensure
that donations are used effectively for the poor.
- How do we ensure that your sponsored child attends school regularly?
We work closely with individual primary schools for each child attendance and study progress. Reports
of your assigned child will be sent to you every 6 months (reports are sent every April and October).
- How long do I need to be a sponsor for?
The minimum period to be a sponsor is 1 year. This is to ensure that the child sponsored gets supported
consistently and gets to finish one Grade year in school.
- How many sponsors will my child have?
A child will only be assign to one donor at a time to make sure that as many children get to benefit from
our programme as possible.
- How does Sponsor A Child programme different to other charities’ child sponsorship?
Many child sponsorship are community programs where the child benefit indirectly from it.
(E.g. a well may be dug or a road repaired).
OHF’s Sponsor A Child programme provides DIRECT benefits to your sponsored child.
- Where does the money go?
For every $1 you donate, $0.80 will directly benefit the child in terms of food pack or school necessity.
The balance $0.20 will be use to operate the programme and ensure its sustainability in the future.
