School Health Program and Books

In cooperation with the Angkor University Nursing Program, CCDO is teaming up with their 3rd year students and expanding our School Health Program. The students visit schools and conduct general Health Check Ups referring any children with health issues to the local hospital.

Upon the agreement signing, the university director said that the student nurses heard of our lending library program and they would like to spend additional time after the check ups reading to the kids. This gives us an added incentive to fully fund the 100 schools that need a lending library.

It is only $500 to bring joy to children and give them books to read. Reminder that there is very little TV or use of computer and tablets in villages. The children rely on books to stimulate their imagination.

Consider donating to our lending library, we need to fund 87 more schools with books.

Now imagine you are a mother of a child who brings home a book from our lending library but you yourself can not help them with reading because you are illiterate. We hope to change this for local women. CCDO has been approached by women in the community who expressed their desire to learn to read and write. 

CCDO is starting a pilot program to involve local school teachers to spend some time teaching the mothers of their students and other underprivileged women. This is really exciting news as it has been a long time dream to encourage women to be fully literate. We hope to expand the program in the fall under the umbrella of our partner Soroptimist International who has been supporting the education of the young girls who have dropped out of school for various reasons.

Donor Visit

SE Asia Foundation has been a great partner over the past few years. Their president, Bill Taylor, paid a visit to the different programs they are funding. First stop was a visit to the teacher training literacy program where he also saw his Mobile Library in action. He then had a meeting with the director of the Provincial Training College where his funds are sponsoring teaching English to 164 new teachers. They discussed the implementation and challenges of the project.

He also visited one of our Women Empowerment workshops and was most impressed with the changes that CCDO was making.

Ordinary people can do extraordinary things
to change lives, one child at a time.
