Helping families better provide for their children
Hello from M'Lop Tapang,
I wanted to thank you again for your donations that are allowing us to help thousands of Cambodian children and families here in Sihanoukville, Cambodia
We all know that children grow up best in loving families, but sometimes even the best of parents need support. By supporting poor families, children are more often protected from violence and abuse, do not live on the street, or face the risk of being separated from their parents and placed in institutions.
Your donations have helped mothers like Sreyroth (name changed for confidentiality), a single parent with three small children aged 12, 10, and 5 years old.
Before Sreyroth used to work at a local garment factory. With no one else to look after her children while she went to work, Sreyroth's oldest daughter, who was not even a teenager yet, had to stay at home all day to look after the younger ones. Sreyroth is now one of the mothers in our Home Based Production program. The program helps poor families develop a steady, safe source of income generation. Mothers and fathers completing a sewing training program are provided with sewing machines to work with from their homes. The products they produce are sold in the Tapang’s Shops and other outlets.
Sreyroth now earns $60-80/month sewing products from her home where she can work flexible hours and is able to be with her youngest child. Her two oldest children are now in a classroom everyday studying at M’Lop Tapang’s Education Center and getting a chance for a better future.
From everyone here at M’Lop Tapang, thank you again for your support and encouragement.
