WAYS TO MAKE A DONATION

SPONSOR A CHILD
CHANGE A LIFE

For $40 a month, you can give a Cambodian child the gift of education.

Children who don’t go to school are vulnerable to sex trafficking, a life of subsistence and hard manual labour or can end up married and bearing children at a tragically young age. Through education, children are protected and given the opportunity to develop a purposeful life.

Our vision goes beyond having children just attend school; we encourage academic excellence and do all we can to help children to progress from primary school to secondary school and beyond.

YOUR SPONSORSHIP PROVIDES YOUR CHILD WITH:

  • A school uniform.
  • Essential school stationary.
  • Access to school based health programmes.
  • A monthly contribution to family living costs to cover the loss of the childs wage. This can be spent on extra classes or food for them and thei family. The sponsorship incentivises families to send their child to school, rather than keep them home to work. Over several years, the sponsorship helps to lift the whole family out of poverty.

SPONSOR A CHILD | CHANGE A LIFE

“Education is a human right that is denied to many Cambodian children. Your sponsorship is the key to breaking the poverty cycle and giving one child a chance to live with freedom, dignity and possibility. From the bottom of my heart, thank you.”

SPONSOR A SCHOOL
CHANGE A COMMUNITY

For $1000 a month, you can transform a school and change a community.

A CCT supported school is a beacon of light in a poor, Cambodian village. When you transform a school, you transform the lives of hundreds of children and their families.

A supported school is a centre of new life in the community – it represents the parent’s hopes and dreams for their children and the only realistic stepping stone out of poverty. Many parents have had limited education and have been totally disempowered from any form of engagement in their children’s education in the past. Because many parents are illiterate they do not feel they can have any say in education – we try to overcome that through ongoing community meetings and consultation.

We encourage their ongoing involvement with the school, we consult with parents about what they want for their children and we convince them that their child’s education is a good investment; better than keeping the children at home to work in the fields. The parents and wider community are an important part of the school ecosystem, as much as the school is central to the community.

We currently support 19 primary schools, four secondary schools and 17 teacher’s training colleges.  There are many unsupported schools that we could transform with your help.

Your tax-deductible, monthly sponsorship of $1000 provides the funds for us to put our SCHOOL TRANSFORMATION PLAN into action with a new school. We work through a plan and prioritise what is most urgent out of the following:

  • Improving the classroom environment.
  • Establishing a school library.
  • Building a school playground.
  • Planting a vegetable garden.
  • Establishing a preschool classes.
  • Providing teaching resources and stationary.
  • Providing uniforms for children and teachers.
  • Supporting teacher development through monthly workshops.
  • Annual prizes for the five top performing students in every class.
  • A free remedial class for the lowest performing 30% students.
  • Providing  ‘Days for Girls’ to provide feminine hygiene resources and education.

Could you, your friends, your book club, your church or your company partner with us to transform the lives of hundreds of children?

“Transforming schools is right at the heart of our work as a trust.  Your sponsorship makes possible a radical turnaround in the education, health and wellbeing of hundreds of children. I cannot express enough how impactful this is. Thank you.”

CAMBODIA

REBUILDING AFTER THE LOST GENERATION

Cambodia is a nation in recovery from great trauma. Pol Pot and his communist Khmer Rouge movement led Cambodia from 1975 to 1979. During this dark reign, two to three million Cambodians out of a total population of seven to eight million died from execution, disease, starvation or overwork. Pol Pot’s vision was to create a nation of labourers; educated people and teachers were targeted and killed. The whole social structure of Cambodia was destroyed. A generation of leaders and teachers was lost. Education is vital for the rebuilding of Cambodia, and we feel compelled to support Cambodians in this transformative work. We’d love you to join us.
