Sponsor a School student’s education
for just US$40 per month
or US$480 per year
Education is key in helping to break the cycle of poverty. New Hope Cambodia provides schooling based on the formal government Khmer curriculum from pre-school to grade 4.
Sponsoring a student’s education gives them access to formal Khmer education. Some families would not send their children to school or would not send them regularly if not for this support.
With more than three million people visiting Siem Reap City each year, English competency increases the students’ future employment opportunities. Few government schools provide this service consistently and private schools charge high fees, which most Cambodian families are unable to afford.
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 student with full support and access to New Hope Cambodia’s free school health centre, staffed by a qualified nurse.
Your donation will pay for the student’s school uniform (blouse/shirt, skirt/shorts/trousers and socks and shoes if needed) as well as school supplies such as text books, notebooks, pens, pencils, back pack. If required, your donation will also cover the cost of a bicycle enabling the student to get to and from school.
As a sponsor you will receive an annual school report and photo and an update on progress from your sponsored student.
