Children’s Fund Programme

IMG_7316 (2)The Children’s Fund Programme targets children at an orphanage, who are children infected and/or affected by HIV/AIDS, children-victims of trafficking, orphans and abandoned babies.  SFODA helps children and youths have a better future through access to safe shelter, recreational and cultural activities, adequate formal and non-formal education and vocational training skills, thus leading to their own business, employment, and successful family reintegration.

Reaching Cambodia supports SFODA Orphanage with food, healthcare, potable safe water and salaries.  However, these do not cover the expenses involved with raising a child.  Families/individuals are needed to be part of the children’s development.

How does it work?

A sponsor/godparent will be combined to a particular child.  The sponsor/godparent receives regular updates about their child.  Occasionally handmade cards or small letters will be sent to sponsor/godparents from the children.  On the other hand, godparents can send gifts to the child through Reaching Cambodia and cards from children are received from time to time.

The cost of the programme is of €330.00 yearly.  This supports the particular child with basic necessities needed, mainly educational.  The cost of less than $1 a day is not enough to support a child on a daily basis and hence more than one sponsor/godparent is needed for each child.  SFODA Orphanage acts as the children’s family and hence the programme will support all the children, irrelevant if these are sponsored or not.  Therefore each child at the orphanage will have the same meals, clothes, uniforms, healthcare benefits, stationery, satchel, books & other needs. This ensures fairness among the children.

IMG_0358 (2)An additional advantage is that children coming from an orphanage are OBLIGED to attend school and therefore education plays an important role in the lives of children at the orphanage, guaranteeing a better future through education – which is a very important fundamental aspect Reaching Cambodia believes in.  In addition, Reaching Cambodia has an agreement with SFODA, where volunteers will also be monitoring the children.  Reaching Cambodia will be sending the updates to the sponsor/godparent regularly.
