Covid-19 UPDATE June 2021

Covid-19 has had a devastating impact on New Hope Cambodia, especially as there is no work for many people. Families are struggling to source their most basic needs.

For a few months we were permitted to continue to provide free education, health care and community support for the impoverished children and youth.
We have had to close our Volunteer Program, Restaurant and Tour Group Program. The closure of these programs has resulted in net loss of approximately 50% of our income.

Since 20th March 2021 the school has been closed again due to the Covid-19 lock-down. We have also been restricted on how far we can all travel from our homes.
We are now providing online distance learning for as many of the students that we can. They can use smart phones or a computer if they have access to one. Our teachers are working from their homes to provide these lessons. For students who have no phone, where is it possible, students come to NHC and take worksheet from their teacher.

Our goal is to support our staff and students families so they are able to return to school once this crisis is over.

More than ever our goal is to continue to
“Transform the lives of impoverished children and youth within Mondul Bai Village,
by providing free education, health care and community support.”

Any financial support you are able to provide to NHC in these difficult times would be most greatly appreciated.  Please visit our DONATION page.


About New Hope Cambodia

New Hope Cambodia provides free education to children and young people from some of Siem Reap City’s poorest areas. We teach the government’s Khmer curriculum up to grade six and we teach English, computers and life skills while also providing vocational training in our School House Café. Many of our students come from families living on less than $100 a month. Our school provides hope and opportunity for young people to break the cycle of poverty for themselves and their families.

A big thank you to iHerb
