Rice for Cambodia Australia Inc.

Rice for Cambodia (RFC) was formed in 2004 and is registered as a fundraiser and charity in the state of Victoria, Australia, donations over $2 are tax deductable. All funds raised go to the kids, with all administration done on a voluntary basis.

 

Statement of purpose:

A sustainable and improved future for the community of Siem Reap, Cambodia, through the implementation of sustainability programs and projects for orphans, vulnerable children and their families. This will be achieved with their assistance in diverse educational programs teaching self-sufficiency and developing self-esteem through: food production, developing and growing micro-businesses, building and construction, health and sexual education, and literacy and numeracy skills. Advancing further education and traineeships.

 

RFC projects:

The Life & Hope Association Sustainable Communities Project provides education and support for over 300 children and their families in 6 Villages in the Angkor Thom District.

With our assistance, LHA provides school uniforms, school bags, books and stationary for the children and encourages them to attend school. The poorest families receive rice, cooking oils and fish sauce each month. In the past education was not a priority for these families, however through their program the families not only want to send their children to school, but be educated themselves. They provide workshops on agriculture and fund tools, fertilizers and seeds to help them become more self-sufficient. They also offer micro loans for families to set up cottage industries and are setting up an agriculture school for the families.

 

The Green Gecko Project:

The Green Gecko project is an initiative founded to benefit the lives of street children in Siem Reap, Cambodia.

The Green Gecko project is about empowering these children with skills, education, care and support to enable them to break the begging cycle and live to their highest potential. It also provides shelter, care and stability for those physically battered or psychologically in need.

RFC assists Green Gecko by providing funds for education and sustainability projects including Footprints Farm where the children enjoy growing their own food and learning agriculture skills, and setting up families with micro businesses to help break the cycle of ignorance and poverty.
