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.  Filling a backpack with uniforms, books, shoes, and stationery immediately reduces the burden on the parents having to work long hours (often at night), or worse, pulling their children out of school to help support the familiy.  Your gift goes beyond seeing the child finish school with all that she needs.  It gives her the assurance that the dream for an education is within reach with you behind them, always.”


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.
