Side By Side International supports key orphanages in Cambodia and in some cases undertakes direct sponsorship of paying teachers’ salaries that assist in the education of children living in extreme poverty. Photo highlights of some of these undertakings include:
IT Computer Training
Sponsoring Students and Teachers for Rural Schools
Top quality leather school bags were provided by SBSI to students in Cambodian schools. These very poor students were overjoyed to be given something so valuable for their own, which their families would never be able to afford to purchase them, and definitely treasured these bags.
Book Project in Cambodia
Side By Side International designed a bilingual educational book for Cambodia which is distributed in orphanages, centers for disabled children and poor rural public schools.
Promoting Humanitarian Tourism
Side By Side International has organized various study tours to Cambodia for members of the student association “Graphis”. These Japanese students in turn held a fund raiser in their home country and raised $14,000 to fix the 8K road between the new health clinic and the highway.
"Graphis” consists of students drawn from about 30 universities and their whole purpose is to help Cambodian children. The organization has begun sending students overseas and providing them with hands-on involvement in humanitarian programs.
