Mission

Our mission is to promote sustainable village development in partnership with Cambodian people by helping to provide clean water, sanitation, educational opportunities, health care from birth onwards, improved nutrition, and economic empowerment. We work to increase awareness of environmental and social responsibility within families and communities by helping provide the necessary tools for villagers to improve their quality of life; feel pride and reach their highest potential.

Notes from the nonprofit

We continue to grow and service the Ampil Commune with a comprehensive outlook and outreach program. We believe in a partnership with the community to give them a say in their own development. The attrocities of the Genocide and 20 years of Civil War have taken its toll and we now see an upswing in the development to a sustainable life.

WASH Program ( Water, Toilets Health & Hygiene)

Building Water Wells & Latrines in the Rural area of Siem Reap. This changed people's lives as they are able to have clean safe water without walking 2 miles in each direction to bring it to their home. We have provided over 1300 water wells since Aug 2007. Repaired 300 belonging to other NGO's. Latrines help keep the water tale safe from disease. We have built 450 latrines and repaired 200 latrines.

Sports plays a big part in a child's education, building confidence as well as health benefits. We have full time nurse at our schools and keep the children healthy with our dental hygiene and hand washing programs.

Social Entrepreneurship program gives villagers an opportunity to build new income generation skills and help support their families.
To date we support 3 projects: Piglet Farming, Vegetable Gardening, and Soap Selling.
We have started 200 families producing piglets which are then sold in the local market. They also pass on piglets to other families. We have 10 village vegetable gardens who help feed the children and sell the surplus to hotels. We have 10 soap sellers who not only keep up the standard of hygiene, but also provide for their families.

The participants in all projects give back to our organization and community in small ways.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We continue to educate the children and their parents on a sustainable life with clean living conditions. Cleanliness is paramount for good health. We are forming partnerships with the communities and give them a hand up and not a hand out.

We believe that Education is the key to sustainability. We are working closely with the village chiefs to secure the trust level of the villagers. We ask for financial participation in our water filter and latrine program so we have them invested in their own futures.
We currently run after school programs in 54 government schools with 12,000 children. We provide English classes from 3-9th grade as well as sports and library programs. We have 54 scholarship students in High School & University.
Our WASH (water, sanitation, health and hygiene) has built 1,700 wells and 700 latrines. We operate 22 preschools for 3-5 year olds so that their siblings can attend school instead of staying home to look after the little ones. We have twice weekly Women's Workshops giving information on Domestic Violence, Parenting, Health and Hygiene, Nutrition and Anti-Trafficking.
We have built 200 houses along with rainwatere gutters an storage waters. We have built 9 toilet blocks as schools with handwashing stations.

Our Cambodian Team on the ground is growing and implementing our ideas. We work hand in hand with them and have regular Skype meetings to implement each aspect of the programs. We are fortunate to have a selection of educated volunteers who spend a minimum of three months on the ground in Cambodia helping our amazing Cambodian team expand their knowledge. Our President and Vice President are on the ground in Cambodia 6 -8 times a year and this makes a huge difference.

We have continued to evolve our hands on approach and can count the progress with the number of students that are now speaking English and going to school due to our programs. We are also measuring their BMI on a quarterly basis. Visual results in the villages will tell the difference since we started our programs 14 years ago. A cleaner and healthier environment that produces vegetables for healthier and more educated rural population.
