Summary

Please help us to build Cambodia's first sensory room for 5000 children and young people to be able to access. For children with developmental delay a sensory room could mean the difference between long term disabilities and mobility issues, and good health and happiness. To start with we're planning on funding a sensory room in Cambodia. Building on the success of this project we will then look towards funding further facilities, including a twin facility in North West England in the future.

Challenge

While all children in a clinic or hospital might benefit from additional sensory support, for those with developmental delay, mobility issues, or visual/hearing impairment this might make their visit so much more pleasant. Sensory equipment is designed specifically to support the development of the senses - like touch, hearing and sight - through cool things like special lighting, music, and tactile objects.

Solution

Sensory equipment has been used to support child health in lots of settings in the UK, but many health facilities still do not have access to this equipment. In Cambodia, very few children have access to these sorts of facilities at all. We hope to provide sensory facilities in a social development organisation in Cambodia where over 5000 children & young people will have access to them, including a significant number of disabled children. We also hope to fund a twin-facility in the UK.

Long-Term Impact

Enabling children to take part in sensory play helps them develop and refine the use of their senses and enhances their development and wellbeing. Sensory play can boost children's touch, sight, hearing, smell and taste. This can help a disabled child's development significantly improve. It may also help a child to develop enhanced gross motor skills (walking, jumping, running, climbing) and fine motor (writing, drawing, eating, drinking) skills as well as behavioural and emotional development.

Additional Documentation

This project has provided additional documentation in a DOCX file (projdoc.docx).
