Children's preschool in Cambodia

$2,800 of $7,200 goal

Raised by 30 people in 63 months
We need your help! Hearts and Hands for Cambodia is a non profit organization that is the sole financial support for Sobbhana Daycare Center Preschool in Battambang Cambodia. We have been supporting them for the past 12 years. However without your help we will not be able to meet the budgetary requirements to keep the Center open through 2014. We are asking you to support our operating budget with your donation for 6 months until we can find a more permanent solution. We support 75 children ages 3-6 who come from several villages surrounding the Center. Our program provides our students with 2 meals a day plus snack, preschool classroom activities divided by age into 2 classrooms, organized and free play, nap time, bath time, and most of all a safe, secure, and loving environment for them to be children. Our children come from 8 of the poorest villages surrounding the Center. We believe that our preschool gives the children a head start in education, important nutrition for growth, and personal hygiene which helps prevent disease. 
Take a look at our website: Hearts and Hands for Cambodia and our Facebook page: Sobbhana Daycare Center.  
Dig deep and give from your heart- what we do works and has already made a big difference in the lives of our children and their families in Cambodia.  We hope and pray we can continue to provide support to these children.  Thank you for your consideration!

We were able to raise $2760 with this site. I want to thank everyone who donated! The money even though it fell short of our goal of $7200, helped us keep the Center open. Best of all one of our Board Members, Barbara stepped forward to donate the money needed to keep the children's meals this year.

We are implementing future changes in order to gain more consistent funds. We are adding a few more board members and hoping to partner with a preschool in the USA and Singapore. Please keep in touch with our website: heartsandhandsforcambodia.org and our Facebook page: Sobbhana Daycare Center for updates and pictures.

We are very grateful for your generosity. Our children and staff thank you very much-akun jann!
Best to All- Chris

The Center's Kitchen Garden
Nicoleta volunteered with the Center in late summer of 2013. She initiated the start of our kitchen garden. So far it has produced tomatoes, eggplant, and lettuce among other vegetables. We also planted mango trees with a donation from Deborah (our Canadian volunteer). I posted photos of our garden and our produce. The food augments our meals for the children. Most often we have soup with rice as the staple for lunch. The fruit is wonderful for snacks. Our goal is to provide 2 nutritious meals for the children and the garden is a wonderful complement. We have fresh vegetables, we lower our cost, and the children learn about the benefit of a family garden by actively helping in the planting and harvest.
Please help us to continue our Center. Every penny of money earned is used by the Center for our children. Look to our Facebook page: Sobbhana Daycare Center for more photos and activities.

International Children's Day at the Center

International Children's Day spreads hope for the future of children, the architects of tomorrow, especially those thriving for "just existence" in the underdeveloped world. The participation of agencies like UNICEF, G8 and other charitable organizations is a giant leap towards peace and unification of humanity, giving all those involved in the process the knowledge that the world is ONE FAMILY.

These are pictures of our Sobbhana Preschool Daycare Center celebrating.

I have attached a few pictures of our kids arriving and departing the Center. Modes of transport include walking, bicycles, motos, and tuk tuks.
