The Cambodian Hope Organisation is a Christian organisation based in Poipet, Cambodia. Their vision is to cultivate hope in the future by assisting the development of a network of strong, self-reliant, independent, hope-filled communities, where adequate mental, physical, and spiritual needs are met. We believe this to be in keeping with Matthew 22:v39, where Jesus commands us to “love our neighbors as ourselves”.
CHO believes children to be at the heart of this vision for Cambodia and strives to educate, empower and equip children as leaders of the future. Seeking to improve child protection, food, security, health, skills, livelihoods, water and sanitation as well as the spiritual lives of targeted children, youth and adults in order to improve their quality of life.
In fitting with this, the pinnacle of CHO’s ever-expanding network of projects is currently a ten year vision for the creation of a safe haven site close to Poipet: set to house educational, pastoral and administrative facilities. Currently, they have over 200 students enrolled in their 2013 academic year. They have 7 grades now from 1st grade to 7th grade. It is their vision to see the Safe Haven keep progressing until University level into the future. Their main goal is to provide quality education to the children of the area and to see each graduated student have the potential and the resource they needed to grow another step of their lives. As for the vocational training, They have currently started with agricultural skills and are planning to take in other skills such as sewing, handcrafts, and computer technology. These skills would greatly enhance their future potential.
