About CHD Cambodia

Children with Hope for Development is a grass roots Cambodian Non-Governmental Organization. It is based in Po village, Takeo province, Cambodia and is located approximately 94 kilometers from the capital Phnom Penh. The village is in a poorly serviced remote, rural area with unmade roads. The children in the Po village come from poor rice cropping families and have limited prospects to assist them, break out of the cycle of poverty.

Providing the children from Po village with the opportunity to attend a free NGO school such as Children with Hope for Development improves their educational opportunities to become literate in Khmer and English. At CHD we teach the Government Curriculum to multi-level students. As qualified Teachers we know that education improves children’s confidence and their self-worth and gives them some hope for their future.

The project at Po village has been created to assist children out of illiteracy, create opportunity for them and contribute to the development of our society and Cambodia.

We welcome short or long term Volunteers at CHD School who really wish to make a difference to the lives of our children. Buddhism is the national religion of Cambodia and we ask that volunteers respect our beliefs and that we are a Cambodian managed NGO.
