SPONSOR A UNI STUDENT
There are a lot of students in Cambodia who despite achieving outstanding results at secondary school, cannot afford to pay for tertiary education and whilst they understand that their biggest stepping stone out of poverty is through education, the cost of university is well beyond the means of most Year 12 students.
For $45 a month Your donation will pay for the student’s university fees, with the option to also assist with necessities such as text books, notebooks, pens, pencils etc. University sponsorships are paid as a lump sum annual donation of $550.
SPONSOR A FAMILY
Many families in the rural village areas around Siem Reap live far below the poverty line.
For $45 a month, a sponsored family receives food every week and small amounts of cash.
This can create an opportunity for children to attend school instead of collecting rubbish to sell for the family income, allows illiterate mothers or older girls to learn sewing, or feeds a sick grandmother raising her grandchildren.
In Cambodia medical care is often very limited for the people who live in rural areas.
As such, New Bridge organisation employs one qualified nurse who visits the village fortnightly with our staff. Providing medication, examinations, and if needed further medical care.
