Clean House Project
Today most of our provinces are unable to cope with the rapid pace of urbanization. People do not understand that it is their right to clean house and environment to get clean air to breathe, proper housing, education and health. SAC send our staff every month to teach the villagers and students how to understand the clean house project. We also shun our responsibility of keeping our environment clean. We encourage the cleanest house every month with $20 in our both villages (Svay Leu and Kantuot). It is an acceptable fact that no government can keep cities clean by mere enforcement of environmental laws. Public co-operation and participation is vital for cleaner and greener cities.” The child is the father of man “and thus a powerful agent of education. The clean house programmed realizes the enormous potential hidden in the students and youth group which is capable of changing the world. The programmed aims to mobilize community responsibility for environmental assessment and improvement in all major towns and countryside of Cambodia. Though school itself is a unit of the community, clean house is not confined to schools. The programmed envisages learning for students and villagers through community service and scientific investigation. This helps the youth discover and implement lasting solutions to environmental issues in their community. It also develops life-long habits of active citizenship and environment.
Playgrounds project aims to change the lives of children in the rural school by developing schools environments, sports and play facilities. By working alongside local communities, SAC provide sports training and equipment or playground to our schools as well as create play spaces for them now we created 12 playgrounds for SAC’s schools (Svay Leu School, Kantuot School, Varin Primary School and Bantey Srey Primary School).
The importance of sports, play and extracurricular activities is often an understated part of a child’s development. The playground allows children to explore, create, happy and invent. It is through this that they are able to develop their social skills, ways of thinking, learn how to deal with emotions and their own physical capabilities. The fun that children have through sports, play and extracurricular activities has a great impact on children whose lives are difficult. There are millions of children who lack safe and fun play spaces and equipment which can hamper their development because a lot of schools in Cambodia don’t have the playgrounds.
Our Playgrounds’ project aims to change this lacking by working alongside local people and Non-Government Organization’s to identify the most suitable schools and communities for us implement the following projects with. We provide high quality, safe and fun playgrounds and play spaces. We have a fully trained and experience builder who construct each playground to the age specifications and requirements of the children at the school. These playgrounds create a safe fun place for children to play and learn during their free time.
Provide Bicycles for Poor Students in Cambodia
The Child Charity Center work to cooperate with local organization and our sponsor to find out the bicycles for our poor students until now our project is providing 120 bicycles to help the poor students to go to school in poor coastal areas of Trapeang Run Village, Ampil Commune and Bakong Commune in Bakong District Siem Reap province, Cambodia.
What is the problem?
Students of poor coastal areas of Trapeang Run and Bakong need to go to school in remote villages. Areas are steeped in poverty and at the mercy of repeated sea erosion. School is too far from villages to walk each day barefoot with heavy bags of books, making school attendance difficult to the point of jeopardizing students’ future. Bicycles will have a strong impact by helping poor boys and girls go to school regularly. Students will own their bike after completing school.
-How to solve the problem?
Buying and distributing 120 bicycles for poor students contribute cost from $70-$90 for one bicycle. Project will ensure qualitative changes in people’s lives and enhance rural village integrated development.
-What is the potential long-term impact of this project?
By helping 120 poor students (30% boys; 70%girls) finish high school and own a bicycle after graduation, the project will provide access to basic education to all the poor students in the our organization selected area and villages.
Health Care Project
Bakong Clinic is located in Trapeang RunVillage, Ampil Commune, Bakong District, Siem Reap province. It is on the North-East of Siem Reap town and 11 km. There are 10 villages with 7132 people, 3636 women, and there are 836 children. There are 01 nurse and 04 staffs working in this clinic to help the people. Most of the illnesses in this clinic are Diarrhea, Malaria, Cough, fever and cool. CCC set up this project to help and support to this clinic with the birth control project, materials for women giving birth and some of medicines and we send our volunteer to this clinic every year to improve the health care education to the staffs and the villagers. The project work involves setting up and running educational workshops on general health and hygiene practices. These are aimed at child-careers, teachers, children and their parents. You will be directly involved in setting up and implementing these workshops to create a fun and interactive, informal environment. The program will ensure that these communities will be better prepared to care for and protect their young children from general illness and will offer advice on how to live in a healthy environment.
Here, one of our projects has set up because of the poverty; food prices and hunger are inextricably linked. Poverty causes hunger. Not every poor person is hungry, but almost all hungry people are poor. A lot of people live with hunger and malnourishment because they simply cannot afford to buy enough food, cannot afford nutritious foods or cannot afford the farming supplies they need to grow enough good food of their own. Hunger can be viewed as a dimension of extreme poverty. It is often called the most severe and critical manifestation of poverty.
Rural households are the most heavily burdened by the consequences of poverty and hunger. In addition to causing hunger, poverty limits a rural community’s ability to invest in its own development. Over 25 percent of rural girls and boys living in poverty are kept out of school to save money, opposed to the 20 percent of urban girls and boys not in school they have to go to work as the construction worker or work on the farm to earn the money to buy rice for the family. So, the studies have shown that lack of general education leads to higher adolescent birth rates; births that in turn over-burden an already economically strained community, perpetuating a cycle of gender inequality, poverty and hunger. So please you help them with us to save the poor community from hunger and help them to go to school.
Our School Breakfast Project (2018-2030)
started as a pilot program to provide funding for school breakfasts in poor area where children had to travel a great distance to school in Siem Reap Province of CAMBODIA. Taphang Primary and Secondary school is so far from Siem Reap Town, about 40 km and there are five villages around that the students come to study, there are 800 students are studying in this school. We set up school Breakfast Project to this school because most of the families are very poor; the students go to school without breakfast every day. About 3km from this school, Taphang Primary School, is our second project that set up the breakfast for the students with 470 students are studying in this school.
The intent is to provide a nutritious breakfast to children who might otherwise not receive one. The importance of a nutritious breakfast is supported by several studies that appear to have linked it to improved dietary status and enhanced school performance. Most recent research suggests that providing schools breakfasts to low-income children is associated with greater likelihood of eating breakfast and significant improvements in children’s cognitive, emotional, and psychological behavior, as well as in their school attendance and academic achievement. In response to the growing body of evidence suggesting educational and dietary benefits from school breakfasts, many observers have urged that the availability of school breakfasts be expanded. Despite an increase in the number of schools offering the School Breakfast Project, the percentage of students eating school breakfasts is considerably lower than the comparable percentage eating school lunch. Those eating school breakfasts are more likely to be poor and qualify for free or reduced-price breakfast. Our School Breakfast Project is free to all students that could substantially increase the cost to the government of subsidizing school breakfasts, should get participation increase as proponents of universal-free breakfast believe. In a climate where public resources are constrained, it is critical to know whether these expenditures are worthwhile.
