Helping Disadvantaged Children of Cambodia is a nation that is still recovering from the atrocities of genocide, war, mass starvation and a regime that devastated the country from 1975-1979. Approximately 33 percent of the population is under the age of 15, and many are impoverished or orphaned. Children roam the streets selling small items in the hopes of making enough money to eat and to help support their families.
PAC Foundation is a non-profit, non-governmental organization (NGO) in Cambodia that provides home-care, nutritious meals, healthcare, education and clothing to orphans and children living in conditions of poverty and social isolation. Any orphaned children that come under our care are placed in trusted families that we have links with and enrolled into one of the schools.
There are many ways that you can help us help these children. One of the most common ways is by “donations” to provide food, shelter, and education for them. You can also donate supplies, food, and clothes.
Once we get a child settled into a family we can then introduce them into our school’s system. Education in Cambodia is limited and expensive. The average monthly wage for a Cambodian worker is about $60 a month while it costs $370-$450 for a year to send a child to school. At PAC Foundation we believe that education is the key to empowering children to break the poverty cycle and to give them hope of a better and more productive life.
We Need Your Help!
We now are rapidly approaching 3500 up children in our schools and outside funding is vital to keep our school open.
