This project will allow Cambodian Children's Fund (CCF) to enhance the education of the most impoverished children living in Stung Meanchey by providing access to the Internet and electronic learning materials. A link to the world, to current events, and an increase in communication will guarantee CCF students become tomorrow's leaders. The children and their families, the community and the country are strengthened & empowered when we give them the opportunity to thrive.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
CCF serves the Stung Meanchey landfill district, one of the most impoverished regions in Cambodia. More than two-thirds of CCF's students once worked here, scavenging through trash earning less than $2 a day. Few had access to education prior to joining CCF and all lived in extreme poverty. CCF's satellite schools are located in the villages; with your help we can stock these classrooms with innovative technology to ensure the kids' educational success!
How will this project solve this problem?
CCF will now be able to provide electronic learning materials to enhance the education of children, their families and community members. As we believe the only way to provide lasting, generational change, is to ensure that whole families are lifted from poverty, not just individual children. Therefore, all CCF programs seek to empower family members and provide opportunities to make lasting changes.
Potential Long Term Impact
Cambodian Children's Fund aims to break the cycles of poverty, abuse, illiteracy, and neglect of Cambodia's most impoverished and underserved children and their families. Through comprehensive education, healthcare, vocational training, and community outreach CCF has had immense success transforming the lives of over 1,800 children & their families.
