Since our foundation, we have been committed to supporting local school children in the jungles surrounding Siem Reap. By assisting in purchasing school supplies and delivering nutritious food and clean water, we are helping to pave the way for a brighter future in the heart of Cambodia.
Our mission is to help neglected schools receive the critical support they need by constantly assessing the needs of attending children and fulfilling those needs to the best extent possible.
We believe that by giving children the tools they need to receive a better education, and by ensuring they receive nutritious meals and clean water each day, we can make an impact in their lives and on the future of Cambodia.
How to Contribute
Our goal is in helping poor and underfunded school children receive school supplies, clean food and water, and basic gym equipment to promote healthy social relationships.
Schools surrounding Siem Reap are constantly in need of assistance, with many children unable to receive basic school supplies due to a lack of government funding. For most Cambodian Families, purchasing school supplies isn't possible when money must be spent to feed their families. Additionally, because of the recent boom in tourism surrounding Siem Reap, most children are forced to work after their classes have ended.
The little time they have at school is the most valuable and precious
Along with providing tours throughout Angkor Wat and its temples, we also provide daily excursions to rural schools where any sort of assistance from you can make a huge impact on the children attending.
After touring the beautiful and ancient temples built by the Khmer People, spending just half a day at one of these schools is a great way to make a memorable impression on your vacation.
A few ways you can give your support:
- Purchasing food, snacks, or clean drinking water in bulk
- Providing the school with health vaccinations, or hiring a local doctor for one day
- Buying notebooks, pencils, color pencils, pens, backpacks, and other school materials
- Creating your own gym program by giving sports equipment (soccer balls, volleyballs)
- Volunteering for the day by teaching English to teenage children
A tour like this would start with a visit to the local wholesalers market where you can pick from hundreds of shops to select the items you would like to donate (Items like notebooks can be purchased for 10 cents, packs of colored pencils for less than 25cents). We would then journey into the jungle on the outskirt of Siem Reap to schools where you can meet the children, hear from their teachers and experience the liveliness of classrooms filled with students eager to learn.
It is a terrific moment to include in your travel plans!
Additionally, if you would like to donate without visiting the schools, please contact us about supporting the future of Cambodia.
Please contact Angkor Guide Services for more information.
For those that continue to provide their support after leaving Cambodia, Thank You!!!
