Duration:2017 - ongoing
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.

Last Friday we put our Cambodian partner KAKO in the spotlight.

During our ten-year partnership, we have supported their six preschools, five village libraries, the construction of more than 200 toilets, over 60 primary and secondary scholarship students per year and their operating costs.

Admin is not the most appealing of topics but without funding administration costs of our partner KAKO, their projects could not be implemented.

KAKO manages 6 preschool classes for a total of 130 children aged 3 to 5 years old, in five remote rural villages in Cambodia. They built hundreds of toilets to improve sanitation, and with that, the hygiene and health situation in numerous villages, and over 100 underserved children can attend primary and secondary school thanks to scholarships, of which we finance 64.

Without qualified staff and an office from where they can manage the projects and handle the complex local legislation, these vital programmes would simply disappear.

Thank you to the anonymous sponsor who acknowledges that โ€˜administrationโ€™ does not sound very exciting but it is essential to run these projects that benefit so many.

It is 90 years since Ole Kirk Christiansen established the 'leg godt' company in 1932, and 6 years since we received the first donation from the LEGO Employees' Anniversary Grant group.

Last year's grant of EUR 3.772 is used to support two preschool classes for 6 months, covering teachers' salaries and operational costs to prepare the preschoolers for a better future.

Thank you for all your support - your funds make a significant difference to underserved preschool children in Cambodia!
