Challenge

Our children are from poor rural backgrounds. Most are orphans or have lost one parent. Their extended families have an average of $10 a month to support their entire family so can't afford to educate the children. Children and adults suffer from malnutrition and associated health problems. Malnourished, sick children can't learn properly. We take in such children provide them with good housing, education, medical and dental treatment and a nutritious diet in a happy and safe environment.

Solution

Then only way out of this spiral of poverty is education. When children come to CCHP they are immediately given medical and dental treatment. We provide them with a healthy nutritious diet. One of our children has a residual digestive abnormality requiring a special diet. As soon as each child is fit enough they are enrolled in school which necessitates kitting them out with school supplies and uniforms. We are dedicated to educating our children. We also provide extra daily lessons at the Home

Long-Term Impact

Education is the way out of poverty. The Cambodian Children's House of Peace will educate these children and give them a better, healthier and happier future which they will use to nurture their children as well as looking after any surviving members of the previous generation. We empower them to be better equipped to care for their own, as well as to earn money, in order for them to look after their extended family when the time come.
