Children At Risk

NEED:
Many village children have only one parent or are orphaned.  These children grow up in extremely poor conditions as their families struggle to live day to day. Many at-risk children do not attend school because, to survive, they must labor in the rice fields with their families. Children who do not receive an education, cannot break free from the cycle of poverty.
 
VISION AND GOALS:
Children at Risk (C@R) is the New Life Foundation’s sponsorship program bringing hope and a bright future to impoverished children and families throughout Cambodia.  The C@R program provides needed school supplies for the children, and basic food for the family.
C@R works closely with the provincial pastors to reach out to these poor children and families, looking after their physical and spiritual health, visiting and following up on them regularly, teaching them about Jesus, and showing God’s love to families who do not know Christ.  With this help, the family can release their children from laboring in the fields, and allow them to continue their education. This simple sponsorship program is setting families free from the poverty cycle.
 
The monthly sponsorship per child is USD$35 (or USD$420 per annum). We would urge donors to commit to a period of 3 years but if you are unable to do so, a one-year commitment still helps. Our goal is to increase the number of sponsored children from 150 to 200.

In addition, we aim to run “Parent Seminars” to educate the parents of our sponsored children about the value of education and provide us with a further opportunity to share the gospel. The cost per seminar (for 30 children and their parents/guardians) is approximately $150.

New Life Foundation is seeking partners who will partner with us in having a long-term, multi-generational impact on hundreds of young people through this sponsorship program.

SELECTION CRITERION

The selection of children and families consists of this main criterion –

  • Only one child per family
  • Children of poor provincial pastors: We feel it is important to look after our poor local village pastors by supporting them to keep their children in school
  • Poor children in the provinces are willing to study hard with supportive parents: We provide sponsorship to poor children who are committed and who have supportive parents.
  • Children from Grades 1-12 in government schools: As funds are limited, we only provide sponsorship for a child to attend the local government school, however, vocational training or private schooling is not provided.  We aim to support a child to finish their  High  School qualification.

The vision of the project is to bring hope and a bright future by breaking the poverty cycle through Education and Jesus – by providing sponsorship to poor families in the provinces to enable their children to attend the local government school; providing an opportunity for the local church to minister to these families, and to be a witness of God’s love to families who do not know Christ.

The goals of the project are to provide sponsorship to 150 children to pursue higher education, expectedly finishing Grade 12 in High School, and to bring the Gospel and make disciples with these sponsorship children and families through the program.

The mission of the project is to work closely with the provincial pastors to reach out to these poor children and families by sending funds to provincial pastors to purchase rice and ingredients, thus they can look after the physical and spiritual health of the children and their families by visiting and following up on them upon a regular basis.
