Budget: €21.900 ($27.020)

Summary

One of our most important partners is Khmer Akphiwat Khmer Organization (KAKO). In terms of both the total number of projects supported and the total amount of financial support, we provide more for KAKO than any other partner.

Because of the extent of our support, and the challenges to this small, rural, Cambodian organization in receiving more sustainable financial support from larger charities or the Cambodian government, we have taken on the overall administrative support of their operations.

KAKO works in many rural communities in Siem Reap province. For over a decade, their small and dedicated staff have been committed to providing opportunities, education, health care and sanitation to thousands of impoverished Cambodians.

We are happy to provide this support to KAKO to give them the financial stability they require.

Background

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.

KAKO offers many services to rural Cambodians. From preschools, to primary, secondary and university scholarships, to toilets, and much more. They share the same belief in providing help wherever they can, as we do.

In previous years, we had been separately supporting administrative costs in each individual project. Beginning in 2017, we began providing overall administrative support, thus providing stability and financial security to their operations.

Goals and Results

The goal of this project is to provide our long-time partner, KAKO, with the support and financial stability they need to help thousands of impoverished Cambodians.

Sponsors

130 children, from 3 to 5 years old, in five remote rural villages in Cambodia can join village preschool classes which we have been supporting since 2013.

Prior to this, these young children were looked after by grandparents or relatives at home, while their parents would go out to earn a living. Not only would they miss out on the solid foundation that preschools bring but also on the extra nutrition and the health monitoring that the schools provide.

This preschool education ensures that children will be well prepared for primary school; the first step towards better chances in life.

We think 'they deserve better than the circumstances they live in'.

That's why we support these young students, in total 63 children in rural Cambodia. We give them scholarships so that they can create better chances in life, for themselves and for their families. And when they succeed.... Wow... that feels so good!

Thank you Anthony Mann and Reineke Bakhoven for so generously supporting this wonderful project.

In five remote rural villages in Cambodia, 130 children attend local community preschool classes which we have been supporting since 2013.

Without this, they would not only miss out on the solid foundation that preschools bring but also on the extra nutrition and the health monitoring that the schools provide.

Early childhood education prepares them for primary school, without which these children would lag far behind their peers who did go to preschool. In far too many cases, they would then drop out of school.

We would like to thank Annigje Jacobs and Brice Godard for volunteering to travel, film and interview the KAKO project team and the students!
