Summary

Khmer Akphiwat Khmer Organization (KAKO), our partner in Cambodia is active in non-formal education and community development projects in the province of Siem Reap.

In 2007 KAKO ran seven preschools in remote villages around Siem Reap, but in 2009 the sponsor stopped the funding and the preschools were closed. In 2011 KAKO reopened one preschool in Lvea village with the hope to reopen more.

The preschools ensure that between 80 to 100 children per year are well prepared to attend primary school, improving their chances of successfully completing their education.

In 2013 KAKO approached us to support the school in Lvea and reopen another two preschools. For this essential part of a coherent educational and health programme, we found sponsors who enabled us to fund the three preschools.

In 2017, KAKO began support for another preschool and approached us for funding, bringing the total up to four preschools: Lvea, Snor, Kouk Srama and Kouk Thmei Preschools.

Background

As a developing country, Cambodia does not have the means to ensure basic education for everyone, especially in rural areas. While primary and secondary schools exist in the larger villages, there is an overall shortage of government-funded preschools. In addition, many villages are too remote for younger children (ages four to five) to attend the preschools that do exist, especially when rural roads are washed out during the rainy season.

This lack of access to early education places children from the least developed villages at an additional disadvantage when they reach school age (6), as they are often not ready and lag behind their peers. It is very difficult for them to catch up and many of these children drop out of school and will not get the chance to continue their education and improve their chances in life.

Goals and Results

From the reopening of the KAKO preschools in 2013, until the end of 2016 over 145 children graduated from their preschools. In November 2015 the government agreed to assume responsibility for the preschool in Stung Preah Srok and absorb it into the local primary school. This gave KAKO the opportunity to respond to requests from parents and, with our funding, to open up another preschool in Kouk Srama Village. In 2017 KAKO was able to open an additional preschool in Kouk Thmei Village.

Exciting news! Thanks to your support, 135 children aged 3 to 5 in five remote rural villages in Cambodia can now attend preschool classes. Since 2013, we've been backing these village preschools, giving these young ones an essential head start.

Before this, many of these children spent their days at home with grandparents or relatives while their parents worked. Sadly, they missed out on the crucial foundation that preschools offer, as well as the extra nutrition and health check-ups provided by the schools. Together, we're changing that!"

We extend our gratitude to Willem and Erica, Loopkoets, Annabelle, Barkruk, Stichting Wees, Stichting Ochtendstond, and ATJ for supporting these young children.

"Ten years ago we supported Dok Srei-ny with an education scholarship for the last 3 years of her secondary school. And recently, after a wait of 4 years, she just received her diploma from University of South East Asia in Siem Reap!

Today, Dok Srei-ny is giving back, as a grade 4 at Stung Preah Srok Primary School (one of 4 remote rural village schools we support in Cambodia). It's inspiring to see her not only achieving her dreams but also contributing to the education of others.

This incredible journey was made possible, all thanks to the generous support of our sponsor and former volunteer, Melanie Naegeli and her family. Their dedication not only empowered Dok Srei-ny but now plays a pivotal role in shaping a brighter future for others.
