Summary

Cambodian Children's House of Peace (CCHP) is a local Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) registered with the Royal Government of Cambodia No. 294/SorChorNor, dated 12 December 2008. Our Vision is to provide growth in body, mind and spirit for vulnerable children in a community of peace. We provide a safe home and environment for 30 otherwise vulnerable children in Siem Reap province that come from very poor backgrounds with little to no access to education, health care or essential living needs

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Siem Reap province is one of the poorest regions in Cambodia: over 50% of children (under 5 years old) are "stunted" largely due to lack of food; less than 40% complete primary school and only 8% complete secondary school (Cambodia demographic & health survey 2010). This level of poverty and lack of education leaves children vulnerable to trafficking, disease, child labor, or abuse. CCHP extends support and the promise of a more successful future to some of the most vulnerable Cambodian children

How will this project solve this problem?

When children come to CCHP they are welcomed as a family member into our safe, nurturing environment where they will no longer be at risk. We provide them with medical and dental treatment as well as a healthy nutritious diet. As soon as each child is fit enough they are enrolled in public schools and provided with school supplies and uniforms. This schooling is supplemented by extra lessons at CCHP campus in Khmer, English, Maths & Science, as well as life skills education and meditation.

Potential Long Term Impact

Education is the key to reducing poverty. It is fundamental to human development, playing a key role influencing an individual's economic security, life opportunities, social status, health and happiness. The Cambodian Children's House of Peace educates these vulnerable children to give them a better, healthier, and happier future. Most children that graduated from our home continue to volunteer with us and serve as role models for the younger children.
