Thank you for Sustaining CCHP!

We extend our thanks to all who have donated to the “Sustaining Fund”, which has reached its $2,000 goal. These funds have indeed sustained Santepheap during the past three months, providing for rent and food, basic needs for caring for these wonderful children. With additional support from visitors and volunteers, the children remain healthy, have been outfitted for the new school year, and are again working hard at their studies.

The goal of this project was to secure $2,000 in monthly donations. We did achieve $500 in monthly donations. As those accumulated over three months, with the addition of many one-time donations, we reached the $2,000 goal. However, we did not succeed in gaining the needed sustaining funds, the monthly donations. We appreciate the fact that $1/day, $30/month adds up to $360/year, a generous amount to ask for. I ask myself what I typically spend a dollar a day on, and it’s usually trivial things, non-necessities even. So, that helps me commit to a dollar a day for something I really care about. We also realize that our benefactors have many commitments to causes they care about. We cannot thank our past and current donors enough for all they have done to sustain Santepheap!

So, let us say THANK YOU again! And by “Us”, we especially mean the children themselves, who benefit every day from proper nutrition, a safe and comfortable place to live, study and play, from the opportunity to attend school, and eventually go to vocational training or university! Our graduates are working in major hotels as bakers, in shops as mechanics, in studios as sculptors, in university preparing for careers in service to their communities and country. Without a project like Santepheap, they would more likely be in their villages, undernourished, poorly educated if at all, working as children, within a cycle of poverty that persists in the countryside, and even in the cities.

You, our Friends of the Children of Cambodia, of The Cambodian Children’s House of Peace, are our heroes! Please use our new project to make additional donations.

Peace Walk for Peace World in Cambodia

The youths of the Cambodian Children's House of Peace – CCHP attended “The Peace Walk for World Peace” at the Royal Garden in Siem Reap, Cambodia on 24th May, 2015. The event was co-hosted by the International Peace Youth Group (IPYG) in South Korea and the International Peace Organization in Cambodia. The goal of the Peace Walk is to commemorate the Declaration of World Peace. This is the first time for our youths to participate in this event in Siem Reap, Cambodia. Our youths delivered the peace message so that everyone who belongs to the family of humanity must now become a messenger of peace.  

 

Youth Vocational Training

Skills development plays an important role in the economic and social prosperity of individuals, employers, communities and nations as a whole. CCHP is trying to motivate its children who turned 18 to pursue their education either through an educational system with the ministry of education or the TVET (Technical & Vocational Education and Training) system through the ministry of labour and vocational training. During the reporting period CCHP supported a youth to have access to vocational training so that he can be fully qualified for employment and at the same time, accommodate the needs of the labour market. Once he completed the training within one year he will be immediately placed in employment within the line of industry or enterprise that is the focus of the TEVET.

Progress Report on Community Outreach Project of the Cambodian Children's House of Peace (CCHP)

Progress Report on Empower Child Labourers in Need through Education Project

Fight against child labour using social activities

Cambodian children in rural communities aged 7 to 14 dropped out of school due to poverty. They are usually forced to help their families. Some of them work for local brick factories, some work on farms, some work as daily labourers and others are forced to migrate to neighbouring countries such as Thailand to find work to earn a living for their families.

 

To help reduce the number of children working in such situations and to prevent child labour the project staff worked cooperatively with student volunteers from local universities to provide basic counseling for school children and their parents so that they are well aware of the importance of education for themselves. In addition to counseling service they team also provided remedial classes to improve their reading and writing during their break time at school and introduced some educational games for children to play and learn at the same time. The team also provided the school children with some school supplies and other materials to meet their basic needs.

 

The children really had a great time with the staff and student volunteers – they have learned a lot. They determined that they will try their best to continue their education until they get a job for a better future for themselves and their families.
