Challenge

More than 20% of Cambodians live below the poverty line. With poverty comes other social issues, such as lack of hygiene which results in increased illnesses, domestic violence, children dropping out of public school (if they have been enrolled in the first place), family planning and money management.

Solution

We provide education programs, including English, Khmer, preschool, art and library for children so that they can break the cycle of poverty. We provide sewing classes for adults so they can earn while their children learn. We provide a wide range of community support projects to work with whole families and help them not only overcome poverty, but address the social issues they face.

Long-Term Impact

This program provides education and support to more than 300 villagers in our community. This allows them to break the cycle of poverty and improve the opportunities, health and well-being of future generations.
