LUNCH FOR KIDS 2017 : PURSAT, CAMBODIA

HELP US FEED 200 KIDS FOR A YEAR

LUNCH FOR KIDS : NOV 2017

+ Our next campaign : 2017 @ PURSAT, CAMBODIA

Come November 2017, LUNCH FOR KIDS is going to Kraeng Tasen Elementary School, Pursat in Cambodia for the second time.

This time round, 200 needy children will be selected from the school population and we will provide daily lunch to them for a year during school term.

Poor students are motivated to attend classes when food is provided. We believe that education is an important stepping stone out of the poverty cycle and we hope to motivate these children to attend school through our food aid programme.

As a donor, you will receive a photo and biodata of your sponsored child. A periodic report of the campaign will also be sent to you over the course of the year.

Do support our cause to feed a child in need for a year. Your generosity will mean the world to another child in need.

+ INTRODUCTION

LUNCH FOR KIDS is a food aid program that aims to reduce malnourishment among students in developing countries within South East Asia. Malnutrition is a common health deficiency in impoverished communities where food is scarce and nutrients in food are lacking. Children are most likely to suffer from malnutrition, which affects growth and development in the body.

+ About The School

Kraing Tasen Elementary School is situated just about 3 km further up from rural Pursat. While being the fourth largest province of Cambodia in area, Pursat ranks only 14th in population within the country. It is one of the poorest provinces in Cambodia. Here, more than 400 children are enrolled in this school as grade one to grade six students.

+ About PURSAT ALUMNI ASOCIATION

LUNCH FOR KIDS is working closely with Chandara Rem, the founder of the Pursat Alumni Association to co-ordinate our charity effort in Pursat. Pursat Alumni Association aims to promote higher education for underprivileged youths. Students in Pursat, many of whom are poor, have the opportunity to study in the University of Phnom Penh through the Association’s scholarships and fully covered costs on accommodation. Currently, the Pursat Alumni Association is fundraising school necessities like bags and books for the children of Kraeng Tasen Elementary School as well.

+ Central Dilemma for Youths in Pursat

Many in the province of Pursat do not receive proper education because of sheer poverty. Contrary to other parts of the world, primary education in Pursat is a luxury.

Many students in Pursat would rather choose to work after receiving primary education, in order to start earning a living, than pursuing higher education. Unlike youths in the capital city of Phnom Penh, opportunities for higher education are rare.

Yet, a dire issue that demands tending to is of primary school children facing hunger. Hunger deters children from attending school because they would rather spend the time and effort scouring for food.

There are many reasons why food is not readily available to these children. One of them is the lack of familial care.

There are children in this school as young as eight or nine years old whom are often left to fend for themselves. Many of their parents work in Thailand, and leave them in the care of grandparents. In other cases, parents working as hard labor at construction sites do not have time to tend to their children.

Hence children have to settle their own meals before and after school. Often, this would mean going into the forest to dig for crops like potatoes, or fishing at nearby reservoirs.

Many of these children live in insecurity. For girls, it is especially dangerous. Cases of rape that happen in the forest are not uncommon. Securing food on a day to day basis is extremely difficult for the children of Pursat.

+ HOW WE CAN HELP ?

The LUNCH FOR KIDS program will play an important role in these young lives. We aim to provide school lunches for a year to the children of Kraeng Tasen Elementary School, in the hopes that the students will be motivated to pursue basic education for a better future.

Please support our cause to make a difference in a children’s life today !
