Sponsor a Child’s Education
for just AU$40 per month
or AU$480 per year
Education plays a vital role in helping to break the cycle of poverty. New Hope Cambodia teaches English, maths and morals to children.
The town of Siem Reap is a major tourist destination attracting over two million visitors every year and it is very important that the children are taught competent English, which will increase their opportunities for employment in their local area. Few government schools provide this service and private schools charge high fees, which poor families are unable to afford. Although the parents know that education is a stepping stone out of poverty, priorities such as food and shelter take precedence and education is often out of their reach.
Your donation will pay for the child’s government school uniform (blouse/shirt, skirt/shorts/trousers and socks and shoes if needed) as well as school supplies (text books, notebooks, pens, pencils, back-pack etc.). If required your donation will also cover the cost of a bicycle so that your sponsored child can get to and from school.
As a sponsor you will receive an annual school report and photo as well as a drawing / letter from your sponsored child.
Importantly, in a country where free medical attention is practically non-existent and where people die from treatable ailments, your sponsorship funds will also provide the child with full support and access to Sunrise New Hope’s free medical clinic staffed by local Khmer and Western volunteer nurses.
