Story of Support
Between 1975 and 1979, the Khmer Rouge regime killed one in four Cambodians in a genocide that claimed most educated or professional citizens, including 80% of doctors and teachers. Future generations had few educational role models, and attending school became a luxury instead of an inalienable right. Poverty, hunger, and many other issues continue to plague the country today.
But Caring for Cambodia believes that education will restore Cambodia’s foundation and secure its future. Since 2003, the organization has built or supported dozens of safe and modern schools, trained hundreds of teachers, and given thousands of students a world-class education. Caring for Cambodia also provides students with fresh water, healthy meals, uniforms, basic health care, and transportation, working hand-in-hand with the local community to ensure that sending a child to school is a choice that positively affects the entire family.
Schools involved in the program have increased enrollment by an average of 70% over a five-year period, proving that smaller class sizes, supportive environments, and enthusiastic, trained teachers make a difference.
Caring for Cambodia believes that when knowledge cannot be handed down, it must be handed out. With our support, more children in rural Cambodian communities will be able to seize the opportunity to learn.
