The Children at Risk (c@r) is New Life Foundation's sponsorship program reaching impoverished children and families throughout Cambodia. Many village children have only one parent, or are orphaned. These children grow up in extremely poor conditions as their struggling families live day to day. Our goal at C@R is to bring these at risk children hope and a bright future.
The Children at Risk Project is working closely with pastors in the villages. Many at-risk children do not attend school because, in order to survive, they must labor in the rice fields with their families. The C@R program provides school supplies for the children to go to school, as well as basic food for the family. With this help, the family is able to release their children from laboring in the fields, and allow the children an opportunity for education. Children who do not receive an education, cannot break free from the cycle of poverty, but we have seen this simple sponsorship program set families free from that cycle.
The monthly sponsorship per child is USD$35 (or USD$420 per annum). We would urge donors to commit to a period of 3 years but if you are unable to do so, a one-year commitment will still help. Our goal for 2019 is to increase the number of sponsored children from 150 to 200.
