A Cambodian community prepares students for quality education on the first day of school. With the support of her mother, her teachers, and other community leaders — and with school supplies donated through World Vision — 6-year-old Channy is ready to learn.
Why World Vision is in Cambodia
The after-effects of the COVID-19 pandemic continue to negatively impact Cambodia. Families’ livelihoods, education, water and sanitation systems, and the economy in general have been hit hard as the country worked to recover in 2022.Schools shut down for two years after the pandemic, causing students to return with many differing needs and setbacks. Additionally, widespread flooding across the country delayed school another month and displaced families, ultimately affecting over 68,000 people. Beyond the physical needs, these challenges have taken a toll on the emotional and mental well-being of vulnerable children and families within these communities. Working with partners and governments, World Vision‘s Cambodia staff empowered communities throughout the country with tools to improve health and nutrition; water, sanitation, and hygiene; income generation, and child protection. Schools were equipped with resources and professional development to help teachers navigate this new landscape of education. We celebrate that 1.3 million children overall benefited from our continuing work in nutrition, education, and child protection!
We never give up on people
World Vision child sponsorship looks at all the things that prevent children from surviving and thriving in their community, and then works with that community to bring all the pieces of the puzzle together to build a better life for all children. For sponsors, it’s a personal way to show God’s love to a child in need in a life-changing way.
Prayer Requests from Cambodia
World Vision's staff in Cambodia are asking us to join them in prayer for the following:
For appropriate legal representation among children who are currently tried in adult courts with limited access to rehabilitation or educational support.
For the restoration of family livelihoods and children’s educational support amid continued post-pandemic consequences.
