HOW TO HELP

Whether you are in position to give a little or a lot, your support means a great deal to us. Below you’ll find a variety of ways you can support our work. Choose something that suits your budget and that you personally connect with.

Poverty and slavery have no place in the world we want to be part of. Thank you for joining your vision with our vision, your hope with our hope and your resources with our resources.

WAYS TO MAKE A DONATION

SPONSOR A GIRL
CHANGE A LIFE

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

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

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

YOUR SPONSORSHIP PROVIDES YOUR GIRL WITH:

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

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

SPONSOR A BOY
CHANGE A LIFE

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

Girls have been subject to the worst systemic injustice and international development work over the last few decades has focused on addressing that. However, our Cambodian staff members and communities have been saying to us “don’t forget the boys.”

Boys are also vulnerable to slave labour and to poverty. Our Cambodian team is identifying vulnerable boys in need of sponsorship.  We’d love you to help us to help them.

YOUR SPONSORSHIP PROVIDES YOUR BOY WITH:

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

“Boys are the silent group in development contexts at the moment. Your sponsorship is the key to changing this and giving one boy a chance to live with freedom, dignity and possibility. Your support transforms their life. 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 twelve primary schools, four secondary schools and two teacher’s training colleges in the Takeo and Kampot provinces of Cambodia.  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. This includes:

  • Repairing school infrastructure and buildings.
  • Improving the classroom environment.
  • Building toilet blocks for health sanitation.
  • Installing rainwater collection systems for fresh drinking and washing water.
  • 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 healthcare programmes for school.
  • Providing  ‘Days for Girls’ to provide feminine hygiene resources and education.
  • Providing ongoing maintenance, school supplies and school and community development.

 

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.
