Summary

Khmer Akphiwat Khmer Organization (KAKO), our partner in Cambodia, is a non-profit organisation that runs several projects that focus on education in some of the poorest villages in Siem Reap province. These projects include preschools, village libraries and a secondary school scholarship programme.

In 2015 KAKO started a new programme, focusing on higher education. The goal of the programme was to help determined secondary school graduates continue on to tertiary education without financial barriers getting in the way.

The programme began when KAKO approached Philanthropy Connections about supporting one of their secondary school scholarship students who wanted to continue her studies after her graduation. Their hope was that she would be the first university scholarship student, and that more students would follow in her path.

Background

Khmer Akphiwat Khmer Organization (KAKO) aims to fulfill an integral role in providing the youth of Siem Reap Province with access to education. KAKO runs a secondary school scholarship programme that makes it possible for children from the province’s neediest families to continue their studies.

In 2015 a girl named Dok Srei-ny became KAKO’s first secondary school scholarship student to successfully complete high school. Srei-ny’s achievement was the inspiration behind creating a university scholarship programme to help her and hopefully many other graduates continue their education in pursuit of a profession that will give them more chances in life.

The tertiary scholarship programme helps recipients by covering the costs of school tuition, school uniforms, stationery, textbooks and food.

Goals and Results

In November 2015 the first tertiary scholarship student, Dok Srei-ny, started a four-year course in finance and banking at the University of South-East Asia in Siem Reap. Srei-ny’s dream is to get a job in microfinance so that she can help people living in her village start businesses of their own and gain financial independence.

In 2016 the second tertiary scholarship student, Cheun Hean, started a four-year course in accounting.

153 children, from 3 to 5 years old, in four 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.

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.
