Since we started our journey as a registered NGO in 2017, quite a few things have happened.
However, one thing that has not changed is that Education still is Key for those we work with, and sponsors are key in making this possible,
As we have grown due to the support of our sponsors, we have grown also in facilities and the number of children we work with.
We now have a full time English teacher, so that the children can overcome any language barriers.
We have been able to set the building up with a fully equipped computer room with 20 computers, going along with computer classes. This is crucial in helping the children to get access to computer skills, internet, and the world in a way that would not be possible otherwise.
Just a few months ago, we have added a library and a reading room allowing the children to read and understand the world even further.
Additionally, we have been able to transform he rooftop of the building to a recreational area, where the children can play volleyball, badminton, and other sports in a safe manner, otherwise inaccessible to them in the neighbourhood they live in.
We have a lot more space available to us, and are making plans to expand the space even further,
This also means, that we would be more than keen to facilitate new sponsorships. as we have seen the difference it makes in our community, and in individual lives.
We can do so much more, together!
Dreams being realized
New ideas being born
Since we started in 2017, when we became an Non Governmental Organisation (NGO) in Cambodia and also a registered charity in England and Wales we have grown from having under 20 students to 40 that are now being sponsored and attending Beltei International School.
As we have grown due to the input of our sponsors and supporters so have our facilities and our ability to support and help the children. We now have an English teacher who works for us to supplement their English lessons at Beltei and a fully equipped computer room with over 20 computers. It is here that they learn the basics of using a keyboard and then move on to Word, PowerPoint, and Excel.
We also have a library on the first floor with a wide range of books including a section for Christian books. Recently we have invested in our roof space after our landlord had it cleared of rubbish and tiled for us. We have had the whole area fenced in to make it safe and put down grass matting, and netting around the sides. The children can now play football, volleyball, badminton and other games as well as using it for a relaxing space and, as an organisation, we can holding meetings there and benefit from the cool breeze at the top of our building.
We now have a Sunday School on a Sunday afternoon with two excellent Cambodian teachers, who teach about Jesus, the Bible and Christianity. This means that we are now keener than ever to facilitate more sponsors as we have seen the difference that it makes, not only to the children's education, but also it changes their attitude; they respect themselves and others more and now have real hope for their future.
We not only support them through school until they leave at the end of grade 12 but continue to support them also when they go to university.
We can do so much more together!
