Few people are more vulnerable and in need of assistance than young girls subjected to domestic violence, sex abuse or sex trafficking. Since 2004, we have assisted the CCPCR rescue shelter in providing a safe home for such girls, who have ranged in age from as young as 5 through to age 19.
It’s been said that it takes a desperate situation for God to do a miracle. If that is true than we have just such an opportunity that we’d like to share with you concerning the future of the CCPCR Rescue Shelter in Phnom Penh Thmey.
In many rural schools there is a shortage of classrooms, supplies and qualified teachers. Our rural education development program began at a large public primary school in Siem Reap called Phum Thnarl. We started by building a teacher’s office for student counseling and record keeping. This opened up a classroom that we renovated into an IT lab, with the help of the Entrepreneurs Organization of Singapore.
Cambodia is a land of youth. A recent survey lists 41% of the population of 13 million under the age of 14. Despite the trauma and suffering of the past 30 years, Cambodia is striving for social, educational and economic reconstruction. One particularly great need is children’s books in the local language.
Rural students coming to Phnom Penh to study, face several daunting challenges. They struggle to raise the necessary funding for their tuition and living expenses. It is very difficult to find safe, affordable housing. The students are in desperate need of friendship and mentoring as they adjust to life in the “big” city. To help meet the need, we opened the Phnom Penh Student Hostel in September 2009.
Family Care Cambodia is honored to assist the Cambodian Special Olympic Committee in hosting the annual Special Olympic Games for intellectually challenged children.
To date, we have secured scholarships to an international school for 6 children from K-4 orphanage. Three of these students have already graduated from High School!
Located on the outskirts of Phnom Penh, Sen Srok is home to hundreds of displaced families, who were resettled from squatter tenements in the capital. Since 2005, we’ve channeled food, supplies and medical care to the poorest families, and run weekly activities for the children. In collaboration with the Department of Informal Education we helped establish the Sen Srok Community Learning Center (CLC) in 2009.
We have an ongoing project to garner food, milk, clothing, shoes, school supplies, educational material, audio/visual material, construction supplies, fabric, computers, sewing machines, and more, partnering with the local business community.
