Vetted

Summary

Enable kids in the "Help Destitute Moms" project to purchase school uniforms & supplies, pay monthly teacher fees ($7-15) so that students can access so called " free public education". Without these funds,students may be ignored, ridiculed, denied study materials or given failing grades. We strive to get and keep kids at grade level and instill the idea that they can and will be able to graduate. Please see 2014-2015 budget document.

Challenge

Children from families impacted by HIV/AIDS may have not have equal opportunity for education without outside support. Support includes supplies, uniforms, tutoring and " Tea Money" to pay fees that teachers demand to provide access to lessons and exams. Teachers in Cambodia are poorly paid and there is a long history that teachers require small additional fees from students. Poor students without money often may not be able to receive equal treatment or access to education and resources.

Solution

Providing resources to enable children to have equal access to education during the 2014-2015 school year.

Long-Term Impact

The Help Indigent Mothers with AIDs (under Kasumisou Foundation's AIDS Patient Family Support program) protects children from trafficking and victimization by empowering them with education and supervision combined with a stable home setting.Our goal is to help children in our program break out of the cycle of inherited poverty.Our program for indigent parents with AIDs combined with a strong focus on education has a 15 year history of success, of creating middle and high school graduates.
