About This Project: 

Per Riverkids –  “A public education is free in Cambodia, but often there are extra ‘fees’ for extra coaching and study materials from the teachers.  We work hand-in-hand with the parents on school fees while we seek support from donors on the must-haves in school to fully equip them.  Parents are regularly having to work long hours (often at night) and they can not spend any regular one-on-one time with their children to make sure homework is always done right and on time.  Your gifts will give the assurance that the dream for an education is within reach with you behind them, always.  They can get help in the short term for success in the long term.”


About This Organization: Riverkids

Per Riverkids – “In late 2001, the Cambodian-born adopted daughter of a Singapore family told her new parents how she had been trafficked.  Other children she had been with were soon found, and the family began building stronger ties within their communities.  From these roots, Riverkids soon began and started its first site, Alexandra, in 2005, followed by Blum and Railway 2, and the fourth site, Kilomet 6 in September 2010.  We prevent child trafficking and exploitation by providing education, training, health, social work, and income generation programs such as Financial Management and weekly boarding.  Our beneficiaries are infants and toddlers, children and teens, sex workers, HIV positive families, and business women.
