As the new year is upon us, and the end of financial year is approaching in America, we are asking our supporters to dig deep so we can start this year with a bang!
We have already reached our goal of funding our education program for 2015, and are now looking for further support to empower community members. Please see below for information on how you can assist us to empower Cambodians to create sustainable futures!
This project will enable a much-needed upgrade to our library by providing new games, puzzles, books, flashcards, art supplies and furniture. Run entirely by our Library and Education Assistant, our library empowers children in our commune knowledge, creativity and fun.
This project will enable our three part-time sewing staff to pursue further education at a reputable English school. All three staff are from disadvantaged backgrounds and never graduated high school. By continuing to study English, their confidence and knowledge increases and it enables them to increase the sales in their outside sewing businesses, hence moving out of poverty. Our scholarships assist our staff to rise above the economic limitations that present obstacles to their further education. They will then use their education to guide, educate and inspire others to achieve. Ultimately, they become role models and help break the cycle of poverty.
This program will develop the community in which Human and Hope Association operates by providing more than 100 Cambodian youth with villagers with access to community initiatives for one year. Run entirely by local staff, these projects empower our community members with knowledge, skills, support and enable them to secure a sustainable future for themselves. Our rural project supports education and empowers teachers with knowledge and resources. Our job skills workshops equip villagers with the knowledge to seek, apply for and secure employment. Our microfinance loans provide villagers with business opportunities. Our child protection workshops empower kids to stand up against abuse. Our university scholarships empowers staff with knowledge which they bring back to our organisation to ensure we provide the best services to our villagers.
