Children with Hope for Development
Children with Hope for Development (CHD) is local non-profit organization in Cambodia whose objective is to provide free education to poor and vulnerable children in Takeo province. It is based in Po Village and is located approximately 94km from the capital city Phnom Penh.
This project has been created to assist children out of illiteracy, create opportunity for them and contribute to the development of our society and Cambodia. We want to give an opportunity to help the poor children and youths in Cambodia to have a good life in their future and reduce poverty in their families and in their communities. A lot of the families make less than a dollar a day and so the children are forced to stop studying and help their parents at work to get income to support the family.
Our vision is to improve the children’s confidence and to strengthen their feeling of self- worth in order to give them hope for their future. We are convinced that education helps children and their families to make positive changes in their lives and empowers the community. Children with Hope for Development is a place where children and youths can learn and share experience with each other and develop skill for active citizenship.
