In Cambodia, it is all too common for children to stop their education in order to help support their family. There are a high number of children who do not attend school, but work to earn money for food and other basic items.
We want our families to have full bellies, but don't want them sacrificing their education to do so. At the start of every month we perform 'food drops' where we deliver rice along with a few sauces and spices, to our families.
We conduct small workshops with each family, teaching them about nutrition and the importance of a diet high in fruit and vegetables. The workshops also explain how to consume a nutrient rich diet from the smallest amount of money, helping them save money and stay healthy.
We have recently started expanding our food donations, which means more rice, more full bellies and more beaming smiles! Your generous donations will help us to fill stomachs!
