Cambodian Kids Education Fund
WHY WE NEED YOU
Whilst the Cambodian economy is improving, millions of people including children and vulnerable young people live in desperate poverty: struggling to cope with no access to education and having a little hope of a normal childhood.
WHAT WE DO
Indochina Starfish Foundation (ISF) believes that every child, regardless of where they were born, has the right to education, healthcare and support. Our work focuses on increasing access to education, improving school retention, and strengthening the quality of educational experience for severely underprivileged children and young people living in the slums of Phnom Penh. The majority of children who enter our programme have had little or no chance to receive education. To give the children an opportunity to catch up and be integrated into the state schools system, we use a Fast Track Education programme, followed by supported integration to state educational programme and vocational training when young people reach the age of 15-18 years. ISF educational programme supports over 600 children in 2016, and through the services provided to the families of the children ISF works with almost 3,000 more people.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
The annual individual subscription is A$ 500. We guarantee that every penny is spent on our operations in Cambodia, and no deductions will be made for our administration in Australia.
HOW LONG DOES MY SPONSORSHIP LAST?
Sponsorship is a relationship, not a contract, and you can therefore stop at any-time. But we hope that you will see the difference your donation makes in the lives of children ISF supports and will continue to support ISF in an ongoing basis.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
It takes a few minutes to become a member. Just click ‘sponsor now’ and complete the payment form. We will then send you a receipt to confirm your donation. Within 2-3 weeks we will send you a welcome pack.
