Challenge

Most of our students come from vulnerable backgrounds, with approximately 35% living in the poverty bracket and 52% hovering just above the poverty bracket. Although they are surrounded by great role models when they study at Human and Hope Association, we can't say the same for their home lives, where most of our students' parents were never afforded the opportunity of education, affecting their behaviours and attitudes.

Solution

Our mentoring program will pair our graduates with a mentor who will identify available resources to accelerate their learning. Immersion excursions will encourage the students to learn about the world around them by partaking in various interactive experiences that promote curiosity and inspire them to continue with their studies. Through our Youth Leadership Scholarships, they learn how to manage peer pressure, develop critical thinking skills and work collectively to overcome challenges.

Long-Term Impact

In Cambodia, a total of 6.26% of those aged 25 and over have completed upper secondary education. The students will maintain their education due to their understanding of the importance of their learning and having clear goals in life. The students are able to work as a team more effectively, opening up future opportunities to collaborate on community projects. In a society where change from the top is difficult, we will create future leaders and influencers through a grassroots approach.
