About this Project:
Mira’s NGO partner, Family Care Cambodia (FCC), works across urban and rural regions with students ranging from 4-20 providing both academic and vocational skills while additionally also working with parents on developing positive family structures. Particular to this project, FCC seeks funding for students at three schools – one in the rural region of Kampong Speu (in the south) and two outside of Siem Reap (in the north). All students across the country are required to wear uniforms regardless of attending public or private institutions; it is a reality, however, that while families may be able to collect baseline funding to pay tuition, nothing remains to purchase uniforms. Or if a purchase has been made in the past, family money does not remain to replenish clothing when it’s worn thin, become tattered, or faded over time due to poor water quality while washing. Therefore, children’s attendance begins to decline. FCC is seeking a small grant to purchase brand new uniforms for 70 students with the goal to keep them continuing with their studies.
One uniform set costs $15 (USD).
About This Organization:
Per FCC – “FCC is recognized by the Cambodian government with MOUs from Ministries of Foreign Affairs, and Education, Youth, and Sports. Our activities include: translation, production and distribution of children’s books, and assisting a shelter for minor girls rescued from sexual exploitation and domestic violence. We provide English, computer and art classes; rice and cooking gas monthly, and weaving looms and sewing machines for vocational training. We built and maintain a second story with bedrooms and lavatories. At a primary school in Siem Reap, we built and furnished an IT lab, teacher’s office, 3-classroom school building and student lavatories. 300+ students benefit from our English, computer and sports training. 60 students benefit from our assisting a village school. We operate a hostel for 20 rural boarding students earning their post graduate degrees. We also help with the annual Cambodian Special Olympic Games.”
