Children’s Education and Project
The basic need of every child is to be able to attend school in a safe environment.
The rural schools Cambodia in the middle of open fields with dirt roads, no electricity or toilets are not an ideal learning environment. There is no other equipment but blackboard and chalk in the classrooms. Often there are not enough desks and benches for children to sit. The education is free and universal, yet each child has to have a uniform and school supplies to be able to attend. One realizes that education is a prized possession when one sees most children walking 3 km (about 2 miles) in each direction on an empty stomach. The children are tiny in stature and often look three years younger than they are. The school classrooms are crowded with three children to a desk and 60 children to a class. Being in the crowded classroom in the midst of the heat, one feels truly stifled. Yet the attention of the students and their thirst for knowledge is astounding.
Cambodian Charity Organization is currently working in three village schools supplying school books and stationery as well as sponsoring 120 poor children. We provide full time Khmer class.
For the future vision and mission:
We will support to more as we can as like computer instructors, English class free and librarians and sports coaches. We have built libraries, kitchens, toilet blocks, playgrounds, sports fields, vegetable gardens, water wells, and Tippy Taps. We regularly bring in experienced teacher volunteers to infuse new ideas and provide teacher training.
We provide a comprehensive puberty curriculum in the secondary school which includes human trafficking awareness and prevention workshops. With the support of CCO we were able to construct a new school building comprised of two English classrooms, a computer lab and a cultural center.
Supplemental Educational Programs
In order for our village children to reach their full potential, we enrich their basic education with additional programs.
Instilling the love of reading is provided by our librarian and an inviting, well stocked library with over 1,000 books in Khmer & English. Daily story reading under the big tree inspires the children to borrow books. Our simple system of library cards is spreading to other schools in Siem Reap and we are spearheading a Library Association initiative.
A significant amount of children are experiencing violence, abuse and exploitation in Cambodia. In CCO’s target areas there is limited information about these issues. There aren’t any organizations are addressing these issues and local authorities are struggling to fulfill their roles to children lack of education.
CCO is implementing projects focused on making CCO communities more aware of child’s education to improve their future. CCO will assist those responsible for children’s education to prevent and respond better to future.
