To build community centre / classrooms for rural children and their families to access education and health related services.
There are over 60,000 new victims of government land grabbing policy since 2014. Many of these children and their families have been forced out of their homes and towns to live in remote and isolated rural area with little access to basic education and health services. As a result many of these rural children and their families are at high risk of long term hardships, and irreversible family isolation and disconnection.
Many of these rural children are illiterate and in poor health. Not able to attend school and having to work all day on the unproductive land to feed their families. Many young adults (12-15 years) are forced to work in low paying factory jobs paying little as $1 per day. The majority of these rural children (especially females) finds themselves trapped in slavery and/or unable to afford to return to their families.
I'm involved because I have visited the community and seeing first hand the suffering and hardships many of these children and their families are facing on a daily basis - not having access to safe drinking water and basic health services.
I have been requested by three rural local community leaders of Phsar Trach, who are desperately trying to change the situation, to help with the fundraising activity and act as an adviser to this important project.
The goal of the fundraising is to:
1. Build community centre / classrooms
2. Provide education and community services
3. Provide financial assistance for social enterprises
