Progress Report on "Empower Child Labourers in Need through Education Project" of the Cambodian Children’s House of Peace - CCHP
December 2013 – February 2014
On behalf of the child laborers, we would like to say thank you very much for all your support in helping the Cambodian Children’s House of Peace provide basic supports for the child laborers in Siem Reap, Cambodia so that they can access to education.
It is a very immensely satisfying support that since the project launched in June 2013, we have been able to keep more and more child laborers in school. This is a reflection of both a decrease in the number of child laborers and dropouts.
One of the key principles of the provision of the school supplies is to make sure that these marginalized children that we are supporting have access to equal and quality education like others in the community. We are committed to achieving the goal of “Education for All”. Besides the provision of basic school supplies we also work with their parents to provide some basic counseling services so that they fully understand the importance of education and provide support to their children’s learning and school. The children and their families in the community are very happy with the supplies they have received and determined that they will encourage their children to pursue a higher education for the sake of themselves, their families and the society.
Recently, we have organized a meeting with the teachers and the school support committee to discuss future collaboration between the children’s home and the school and also to find way to allow both the children at the Children’s Home and the children in community to encourage interaction.
Thanks again for your contribution and commitment to support the “Empower Child Laborers in Need through Education Project” through the Cambodian Children’s House of Peace. Every donation you have made helps ensure that we can continue helping our beneficiaries. We look forward to keeping you updated on the progress of the project in the months ahead.
