Challenge

There are many forgotten children in Kampot living in dire poverty with their mothers. Their fathers have died or left them. Some have no proper housing, water or even shoes on their feet. Others have malnutrition and nutrition-related illnesses. Many cannot get to school regularly. These children are at risk of ending up on the streets as beggars, exposed to substance abuse and child gangs. Their mothers love them, but are really struggling to cope.

Solution

Our school (KCDI) will provide nutritious meals, clothing, medical care and check-ups, facilitate state school education, provide books and schooling materials, give Traditional Cambodian Arts lessons (dance, theatre and music) then provide transport to take the children back home to their mothers every evening. Their mothers can then find work, learn new skills and have some of the weight of being a single parent lifted from their shoulders.

Long-Term Impact

This program is of vital importance to those children who come from poor single-parent families. The program lifts them up out of their desperate situation, provides them with education, practical support and hope for a better future. The teaching program provides them with quality training to become a professional artist (as many previous KCDI students have done) and helps them reach university level, becoming self-sufficient adults.
