New Hope Project
As part of our vision to see Cambodia develop, Khmer Friends has started a new project called New Hope Project (NHP). Our objective is to improve and support children’s health and education. This year we have started supporting a school in Kampong Thom Province that is located 25km from the city. The road to the village from the city is a difficult one on which to travel; it can take 1.30 hr to drive there depending on the weather. The school is called Camnna Primary School and it is located in Camnna Village, Sala Visay Commune, Prasat Balang District. Currently there are four volunteer teachers who staff the school, including the school director. This school started in 2015-2016. There are 120 kids in this village, but only 78 kids are able to study in the school because the building only has three classrooms. This year the New Hope Project has helped provide the local children with school materials for one year through support received from Ms Betty Zesiger from US. There is an old saying, “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime”. We are a language school. We see the value of teaching Khmer language to our students from around the world. We believe that education is the key to Cambodia’s overall development too. If you would like to support our work, you can do so. If you would like to know more details, or even see our project for yourself, please let us know!
