Best Wishes from Cambodia to You!

Image
As we enter this holiday season, we are grateful for all the support you have given this past year.


Our international operations are 100% volunteer, and any overhead is paid by the founders, so that 100% of your funding goes directly into the Cambodian projects.
Through your generosity, children and families are receiving the gift of empowerment, and are rebuilding their lives. 

You can share and spread joy by sponsoring a student.  Click here to sponsor a child today!
When you give a "pass-on animal", you empower the families, enabling them to help other families by passing on the gift to other families.

Through wells and bio-sand filters, children can lead healthy lives and stay in school. Contributing to a well or water filter is a meaningful holiday gift and can change a life.

Thank you for helping to make such a huge difference in the lives of the Cambodian children and families whose lives we touch together. All of us together help to make this happen - the families, Rotarians from around the world, Sustainable Cambodia Australia, and our dedicated SC staff and international volunteers - all working to help village families and children improve their quality of life, with healthy water, nutritious food, health care, education, and sustainable income generation.

With your help, more than 385 wells are providing safe water, more than 4,500 students are currently enrolled in Sustainable Cambodia schools, and hundreds of thousands of Cambodians have been able to change their lives for the better. None of this would be happening without supporters like you!

Students and trainer in the sewing class
The Sewing Program, one of our programs, was established in order to offer potential drop-out students an opportunity to learn a vocation to support themselves and their families. The sewing class graduates are not only trained in sewing practices, but also in running a small business. This is accomplished through trainings covering money management, marketing, and fair trade practices. 

Here are some products our students have made...





Trainees are trained to make a variety of souvenirs and clothing such as purses, shoulder bags, scarves, pyjamas, and dress shirts. They learn best practices in creating high quality products that can receive a good price at the market. Graduate sew…

Rural Cambodian students face many challenges.  The public schools in Cambodia are free, but students from impoverished families do not receive the same quality of education as those students who can afford to pay for in-depth instruction outside of class, handouts, basic school supplies, uniforms, and bikes.

Our students at the state school
Instruction materials and hand-outs can cost over $1.25 per day, an impossible fee for families who make $2-$3 per day.  Students who cannot afford after-class tutoring and expensive study materials often fail to advance to the next grade level.  This leads students to drop out of school early in their lives, either to help their families at home or to help generate family income.…

With your support, SC has thrived since it opened in 2003. It has grown from 50 students to over 4500 students in our school programs. Every student who graduates and passes his or her exam receives a SC University Scholarship. More than 145 students have received a SC University Scholarship and our 62 university graduates have returned to the villages to help their communities. We have seen the number of scholarship students steadily increasing over the past several years.
