So little can go so far in a place like Cambodia.
Help with future projects and daily needs!
Support the Orphanage
With only 2 children on formula, the cost per child for the 17 children in the orphanage has been reduced from $158/month to $78/month. Most of the fruit and vegetables (soon Rice) are grown at the orphanage. We have a great caretaker. Also, our staff has been reduced because the older age of the children allows one nanny to care for 2 1/2 to 3 children instead of the 1 nanny to 2 baby ratio we previously had. This makes your donation go further.
Support a Student
It costs approximately $90/year for each child to attend school full time. We have a total of 48 children in the 1st thru 5th grade studying in Khmer, the national language of Cambodia. You can donate to support one child or more.
We want to build 2 additional classrooms onto the existing school. Each classroom will house up to 2 classes (we now have 3 teachers and 1 classroom) and cost aprx. $1200 for material (Lumber, concrete and galvanized roofing). The parents will supply the labor on a food for work program (aprx. 80% of thier rice crop was destroyed by a monsoon in July 2009) that will supply the rice needed at about $28/bag. We are supplying 50 bags to help the families in the old town of Cheneng.
We currently need 3 solar power systems. One each for the school in the old village, the orphanage and the school/sewing center in the new village. This would not only lower fuel costs (diesel and gas electric generators) it will also introduce the students and their parents to a green lifestyle for the first time. Each system costs $780 complete.
Donate as much as you wish in $20 dollar increments. Send us an e-mail to specify what project you wish to donate to or we will apply the donation to the most pressing needs. Thank you!
