Helping Hands Cambodia is a grass roots aid organisation empowering Cambodians living in poverty to help themselves.
Today, Helping Hands operates a school for more than 300 students, provides breakfast for 100 children 5 days a week, runs complementary educational programme, teaches children and young adults about health and hygiene, supplies two sets of government school uniforms to the children who attend our school every year and supports young adults in university studies. Helping Hands also runs agriculture training programme, provides irrigation drip system to trainees, and teaches mothers and care-takers about food, nutrition and general household hygiene issues in seven villages around Siem Reap.
We operate a school in the village of Prasat Char. Amongst other things, we teach the children English, Khmer reading and writing (to kindergarten classes), and health and hygiene-related issues.
All the students who attend our school in the morning (approximately 100) receive a nutritious breakfast. The meal they receive is prepared in accordance with guidelines from the World Food Programme and is aimed at combating protein malnutrition.
All our students receive two school uniforms each year. Some of the children had just one set of clothes. How could we teach them about personal hygiene when they had to wear the same clothes every single day?
Through our University Scholarships Programme, we provide free support for young people from our target area who wish to attend university.
Our Agricultural Training programme teaches the villagers better agricultural practices. Our aim is to maximise the potential of the land and water resources at their disposal to produce high quality vegetables.
Our Nutrition Training programme teaches the mothers and care-takers better nutrition practices. Our aim is to promote knowledge about nutrition values in food and food storage and preparation, to reduce the wide spread issues of malnutrition in Cambodian rural villages.
