Happy Year of the Monkey from all of us at Ray of Light Cambodia!
Ray of Light Cambodia is a non-profit organisation that works to break the cycle of poverty by providing education, improved health conditions and occupational skills for children in Cambodia.
Our aim for 2016/17 is to raise $20, 000. This is what we need to keep the shared house going and the kids in school (grade 12) and university.
If you wish to help in any way please feel free to contact us or donate using any of the donation links throughout this site.
We are working with SFODA in Phnom Penh. It runs an orphanage (for 50 children) and provides outreach services for HIV children and victims of child trafficking and prostitution.
After many years of supporting the education of young people at one orphanage in Phnom Penh we are sorry to announce that the land was sold. This has meant that the children had to be rehoused which has now been completed. Ray of Light Cambodia has always had its focus as academic development of young people in order to break the cycle of poverty that exists for them. We are continuing that by housing 13 of the older children from the orphanage so that they can continue their education without interruption. They are in grades 10,11 and 12 and we are looking to support them through university. We have provided a number of them with vocational training as well. This will continue to be provided so that they can support themselves when they go to university.
