This year Don Bosco Technical School & Children Fund in Kep Province is celebrating it’s 5th anniversary.
We are very proud to say that we now have 250 technical students in our classrooms and workshops.
Now we wish to complete our Educative Mission by improving the Kindergarten Program, a branch of the Don Bosco Kep Children Fund.
The Kindergarten accepts children from the age of three for a period of up to three years, then they can start the regular classes up to 12th grade .
During three years these children learn the basic social skills – many come from poor families, whose parents have no schooling at all – and acquire the skills that will allow them to access the regular Don Bosco education starting from Primary to Graduation (12th grade).
At their stay at the Kindergarten, dedicated teachers care for their education and activities in the following areas:
- Transport to and from school (a van picks them at their home and brings them back).
The total cost is $55 per month. Although it is a very reasonable amount, for many Cambodian families it can be a real unpayable fortune.
The Sponsorship Program is aimed at allowing those children to attend by subsidizing the fee to the amount of $25 per month. The balance ($30) must be assumed by their parents. Their contribution ensures that the parents keep the interest and commitment of the education of their own children.
In order to insure the stability of the Sponsor Program, we require a minimum of a one year commitment of $300: $25 x 12 months = $300 year + $10 (bank transfer fee). Ideally, we would appreciate the full payment of $300 x 3 years = $900.
We hope and pray that many of you will respond by becoming SPONSORS in order to give these children their chance for a proper education, which will allow them to live a prosperous independent and fruitful life.
