Cambodia and its children face big challenges
The children of Cambodia need your help to access the education and resources they need to survive in a challenging time.
Today’s Cambodia is still recovering from the brutal Khmer Rouge regime of the seventies and the ensuing Vietnamese occupation. This devastating era left many Cambodians orphaned or widowed. The country faced numerous interlinked problems such as famine, food shortage, polluted drinking water, illiteracy, unemployment, psychological trauma and extreme poverty.
These problems have been very hard to tackle, since the Khmer Rouge genocide systematically targeted teachers, doctors and other educated Cambodians who could have otherwise assisted in rebuilding the country. Although progress has been made, it will probably take a few generations before these problems are solved. In the meantime, Cambodia continues to rely on support from abroad and local nonprofit initiatives, such as the Life and Hope of Cambodian Children Organization (LHCCO).
Many Cambodian children, especially those living in rural areas, have little or no access to proper education. Without access to education the children cannot learn to read or write, and are unlikely to learn the skills necessary to find work. Without literacy skills those children will remain in the dark about their own country’s cultural, political and environmental issues, and will know nothing about national or international news. They are likely to remain in poverty and be vulnerable to violence, drugs and human rights abuses. Sex trafficking in women and children is a major concern to the Cambodian Government.
The Life and Hope of Cambodian Children Organization (LHCCO) is a Cambodian non-governmental, non-profit organization. It was developed to try to give hope to Cambodian’s poorest and most vulnerable children. We believe that a better life starts with education and community. We provide access to free education in a safe environment to improve the literacy of Cambodian children and adults. We are based in Siem Reap and we help out in rural villages as well. We receive no government funding, but rely on support from abroad through volunteering and donations.
The Life and Hope of Cambodian Children Organisation (LHCCO) was established by a Cambodian Buddhist monk, Venerable Yorn Chea. Yorn had to endure his own hardships growing up in poverty when his father died under the Khmer Rouge regime. Having later managed to access education and Buddhist teachings and learn English, Yorn began to teach Siem Reap’s poorest children. He started with just a few benches, one map and one whiteboard, in his hut in Angkor Sa Pagoda. Six boys came to the pagoda to live and study. Many more started attending the classes. They survived on donations and money received from offering prayers to the town people.
The number of people reached by the LHCCO is now far greater, and the service offered is making a big difference to the lives of Cambodian children. Life and hope of cambodian children organization(LHCCO)opened in November 2012 and now has 8 classes daily and around 150 regular happy students ranging from 3 years old to 30!
Your donation is needed to help improve the lives of Cambodian children and to save them from the vulnerabilities of poverty, and the dangers of drugs and sex trafficking which have become such a problem.
