Sponsorship

 

Education in rural Cambodia is still not considered a necessity and families often see more value in the children’s ability to work rather than continue with their studies. Working with the Chumkriel Language School, Project Indochina has implemented a scholarship program, agreeing to sponsor 2 ambitious students seeking tertiary education when they would otherwise be unable to afford university fees. This program corresponds with the values of sustainability through education.

SOK SREY YA is 20 years old with an intelligent face and a hesitant but striking smile. She wears her extremely long black hair pulled back to expose a high brow and small, curious eyes. Standing not much  more than 1.5m  from the ground, she could easily be mistaken for a young and wispy adolescent were it not for her earnest expression, a feature that betrays her dimunitive  stature. Read more...

 

 

Like anywhere in the world, education in Cambodia is a gateway to a bigger and better life. In Chumkriel and Kampong Samrong, this bigger and better life may be no more than a modest job that puts food on the table but this is luxury in comparison to the alternative. Attending university is sought by many students of the two communes. These students want more for their families and more for themselves but in reality, they will be dragged down by the poverty of their circumstance. High school and University are expensive. Families often have to make extreme sacrificies to put their students through high school and university is often out of the question. These 6 students are children of these families and the ambition and courage shown in their everyday lives would make not going to university a tragedy for themselves, their families and the future of Cambodia.

CHIN THAVVY Families in the Chumkriel and Kampong Samrong Communes are not only torn apart by death, absconding or violent alcoholic parents. Illness, in particular HIV, often claims the lives of not just one, but both of the children’s parents, often leaving the children in the care of their grandparent, or sometimes, without a carer. It is not uncommon that they are also carriers of HIV, a harsh and cruel reality for the children to grapple with and one that will eventually cut their lives short. Read more...
