Project in 2017
The Cambodian Children’s House of Peace began as a residential care project since late 2008 to house and care for a group of poor children from countryside villages in Siem Reap province.
In late 2015 the Cambodian government collaborated with UNICEF to publish the new policy of cut down the 30% of orphanage or the children’s home in Cambodia. The restriction on taking in new children is being implemented in 5 provinces and capital city such as Phnom Penh, Siem Reap, Battambang, Kandala and Sihanoukville.
According to our achievements in the past years, Santepheap was encouraged to continue the mission in providing much-needed services for poor children in neighboring communities in Siem Reap. After seeing the potential of development opportunity, Santepheap decided and committed to provide many children within the local community with food, school supplies, health care, moral development, scholarships and benefits from the free education that Santepheap education program offers such as Khmer literature, English, math, physics, chemistry, computer etc.
Project in 2015
Our budget in 2015 is for running costs around $1,500/month - which affords teaching, housing, food, medical care, school supplies and a small allowance to our children.
As we start this year, we hope that in addition to these costs, we can embark on new projects that improve the environment for our children.
