One Family At A Time
Rice Scholarship Program
Many Cambodian families living in extreme poverty are forced to remove their children from school to commence work – these young children often only earn a few cents each day, generally collecting rubbish and scavenging for food. Sometimes they’re left at home to care for younger siblings so parents can go to work.
Each of the families we work with express a strong desire for their children to attend school but are faced with a daily fight for survival which unfortunately means often a child’s education comes second to food.
We developed this program in 2016 and run it in partnership with Duon Sva Primary and Secondary Schools. We provide students with 10kg of rice every month in return for them having outstanding school attendance. In addition to the monthly rice allocation, One Family At A Time also provides bicycles, helmets, school supplies, Days for Girls, Iron Fish and much more!
This is one of our most cost effective programs and is producing excellent outcomes. The cost of the program is AUD$120 per student for a full year.
