Provide Quality Education to 200 Khmer Children

A microproject by Village Earth
Vetted

Summary

This program will develop the community in which Human and Hope Association operates by providing 200 Cambodian youth with access to quality education for one year. Taught entirely by local staff, our education program has been proven to increase the confidence of our students, encourage their parents to keep/enrol them in public school and equip them with a love of learning. Since moving to a new location in October 2014, our students have doubled, widening our reach.

Challenge

The causes of poverty in our communes are quite simply, a lack of education and training. When the villagers are not educated, their job opportunities are limited, hence they end up working as builders, rice farmers, begging, etc. There are many underlying issues associated with a lack of education, including hygiene issues, domestic violence, poor nutrition and bad behavior. Our education programs attempt to address these issues.

Solution

Our English program equips our students with a language required in most well paid jobs. Our Morality program empowers our students with knowledge on topics such as hygiene, child abuse and the rights of the child. Our Preschool program keeps small children off the streets and provides them with Khmer language skills. Our art class, movie club and library time encourages creativity and independent thinking, which is often stifled at public school.

Long-Term Impact

"Studying English can help me a lot because I can read and write. Knowledge makes my future better. I want to become a good student and citizen in my society." - English student, aged 11. By providing education programs, we are investing in the future of our students. The short term impact will be increased knowledge and improvements in their behaviour. The long term impact will result in our students having the knowledge necessary to gain employment, reducing the poverty in their families.
