We are passionate about keeping families together.
Poverty is multidimensional. To break the cycle, children need access to equal opportunities whilst their families also receive holistic support. Once a family is enrolled at REACH, our students and their guardians have access to everything we offer.
Our goal is long term sustainable change, and we firmly believe that the best way to facilitate this is through local empowerment and collaboration. As such, our programs are all locally run and we carry out our strategies alongside other respected NGOs, local authorities and child protection agencies.
Post-genocide conflict, the Cambodian economy is growing, but sadly, with it grows the socio-economic gap between the rich and the poor. As the minority gets wealthier, the majority of families living in dire poverty are being left behind. These families are living without access to basic human needs and are surviving hand-to-mouth. Furthermore, without proper education, they are succumbing to exploitative inhumane labour, prostitution, and modern-day slavery.
The need for support goes beyond teaching English to a child. Our beneficiaries require all-rounded aid, which focus’ not only on the development of a child’s education, but also in supporting the day-to-day survival of their families. Through our integrated program offerings, we aim to ensure that the needs of each child and their family are met, so that they can effectively break free from poverty, in a productive and lasting way.
