Scholarships project

The level of public education in Cambodia is downright bad. Although Government schools are officially free of charge, children do pay the teachers, otherwise they are simply ignored. The poor children often come no further than a few years of elementary school.
Even the students from the poor families who manage to successfully complete highschool, can not continue studying because their parents cannot pay their follow-up study. The result is that the girls are usually forced to work in one of the many textile factories, households or marry at a young age.
For these talented students from poor families, our Foundation has set up a scholarship project. If they can follow higher education, thus improving their chances on the labour market for a better job, they have better future prospects. 

Thanks to the financial support of the scholarship sponsors these students received a scholarship.

Structural aid for 12 disadvantaged families

We build together with the local population to new housing (shacks), so the families with most distressing situation a roof over their head. We give the children a school uniform, a bike, a bag and books, so that they can attend school. In consultation with those concerned we search for a means of subsistence for families so that these people be self-reliant and not to in length of days depend. We put together with them a small-scale businesses and offer practical education to our educational farm.

Sanitation and water pump on solar energy for the Angroka high school

In 2011 is by our Foundation a new school building with 5 classrooms. It is the 9th building of the Angroka Secondary and High school. This school counts this year over 2300 students, however for the whole school is only 1 toilet available giving the students their needs in the rice fields around the school must do. Especially in the dry season, this is a very unsanitary situation. The girls have long standing in line if they want to use the toilet and go often do not go to school if they are indisposed.
Our Foundation HCC builds 24 toilets and place a solar-powered water pump with a water tank of 7000 litres. This project is funded by Conclusion, Impulsis/Church in action and the municipality of Utrecht.

 

What have we achieved?

In recent years, the HCC Foundation has been able to develop and grow thanks to donations of family, friends, companies and specific actions. Also due to the multiplication of these donations by Impulsis and the Dutch foundation 'Wilde Ganzen', we have been able to realize following projects.


 

2013 - Water pumps: clean drinking water for the poorest people in Cambodia

In 2013, we installed 64 water pumps. For every pump a 35-meter deep pit was dug to make sure that during the hot dry season there is enough water to drink and wash and to water the animals and vegetable gardens.
Thanks to these water pumps at least 2000 people from the poor locals now have access to clean drinking water. The children and women do no longer have to walk in the blazing sun to get clean water. Now they will suffer less from diarrhea, pneumonia, liver and brain inflammation caused by the use of water contaminated with dangerous bacteria and parasites

Infant mortality and disease rates will significantly reduce due to the presence of clean water and general health and hygiene will increase.

This project was funded by: the Goede Doelenfonds of ING empoyees and the Wilde Ganzen.

2010-Instance solar energy installation in school/home

2011-solar water pump and water tower Construction on the farm

Due to the solar energy installation lighting and fans have been installed. The children have access to a whole new world because of th use of computers, television, DVDs etc. Our school/home has sufficient clean water that is stored in a water tank. In 2011 a solar energy installation is installed at the farm together with a water tower with a tank of 5000 litres. There is now sufficient clean water for the animals and the crops. This project is made possible by COFRA Foundation and through the contribution of ICCO/Impulsis.

2011-construction of school with 5 classrooms for the Angrola High school

In april 2011 the construction of the Angroka high school was completed. The school building consists of 5 classrooms in which more than 250 pupils in the ages 12 to 18 receive their secondary education. Our building is the sixth building at the site of the Angroka Secondary High school. The school has a total of more than 2300 students. We were able to build this extra building thanks to a bequest of aunt Wants Bruinsma-Sol,the classes aren not overcrowded and the students are able to follow the lessons in a better way.The foundation of "Wilde Ganzen" has financially supported this project.




 


 

2010-Educational farm

We use our farm to give very practical and hands on lessons in agriculture and cattle breeding. Most of the villagers from our community (9000 inhabitants) consists of poor rice farmers and they have to live on a moderate rice harvest. Our farm serves as educational center for these very poor rice farmers to educate them about cultivation of different crops which will generate a higher income than by only growing rice.

Because of the practical lessons from Mr. Prat Chres the children are taught in a playful way on how they can grow vegetables and how they can take care of the animals. We were able to realize this project thanks to the donations of Jan Fennis, IJssel shores notaries and ICCO/Impulsis. 

2010 cow project

The poorest, mostly single women with children, disabled and problem families live far below the poverty line. We loan these families a cow. This cow is paid for by us and is also vaccinated. If after more than 9 months a calf is born, the family may keep the calf. Then the cow will be given to the next family and the same process is followed. This project is also supported by ICCO/Impulsis.


 

2009-Water pump/toilets school
-Latrines/water pumps for poor families

For our center a water pump has been installed, there is a toilet building and for poor families water pumps and latrines have been built. This project is funded by Roeland Heule and Aqua for All.

2009-Renovation of the school/home and renewal of many shacks of poor families by Dutch job-group.

In november 2009 a Dutch job group consisting of; Maarten Padmos, Maarten Pachen, Lars Caldenhoven, Rolf Bruggink and Yffi van den Berg have executed numerous improvements and construction to the school and home, with huge commitment and drive . Despite the heat and the numerous problems they have also built new homes for 13 families. Leen van Eijk looked after the administration and finances. Travel and costs for staying were paid by themselves, in order to give 100% of the donations to the disadvantaged people in Cambodia.

2008-Opening school/home

To be able to finance the school and home money was collected through all kinds of actions from amongst others the Gregory school, Utrecht and Prinsentuin College, Breda. The HCC also received donations and gifts from family, friends and companies. These achties contributed towards the fact that on 19 August 2008, a whole new multi-purpose centre was opened in Takeo. A number of children board in the home and more than 200 children receive English lessons. This project is financially supported by ICCO/Impulsis.

Multifunctional library and study facility

This project is financially supported by Impulsis and the city of Utrecht.

We are looking for sponsors who are willing to finance the remaining ten thousand euro to built this library.
  Angroka Secondary / High School has over 2,300 students and 60 teachers. The school is located in the Tramkok district, one of the poorest areas in Takeo province in Cambodia. We want to improve the quality of teaching at this school, so that the students' results of the final exam increase and cons2011, we built an extension of this high school: a new building with five classrooms. A year later we built 24 toilets and a water pump powered by solar energy .

What's the problem?

Especially in rural areas in Cambodia the quality of public education is poor. Teachers are not trained adequately, teaching materials and facilities are insufficient. At Angroka school there is a small room with a few stacks of children's books which serves as a library for 2200 students. Both students and teachers have no teaching materials and virtually no opportunity to broaden their knowledge and to share information. 

Angroka Highschool is the only high school in the region and many children have cycle far to go to school every day. They cannot go home at noon because they live too far away and hang around idle for the day. There is nothing to do and there are only a few shady spots in the sand under a tree. The students live in primitive huts and at 18:00 hrs it is dark. Since they have no electricity it is almost impossible for them to make their homework. A library with a study area would solve a lot of problems because the students would have a place to study at midday and spend their time usefully.

Plan of action : multifunctional library

The library building will be used as :

-       Library for the whole community

-       Study place for students and teachers

-       Meeting space for teachers (there is no meeting center in the entire district)

-       Space for exam preparation and training

-       Research Area for preventive research students by ophthalmologist (Eye Hospital Caritas)

-       Knowledge and Information Centre (eg: HIV - AIDS, hygiene)

-       Cultural space for dance and art

Teachers, students and residents can use the library. The books in the library will be both English and Khmer textbooks, encyclopedias and other books (second-hand). English books will be shipped from The Netherlands. In order to improve the results of the examinations there will be extra exam prep courses by teachers in the library.

Computers

Of course, computers are indispensable to seek information and to acquire knowledge. Once the library is well furnished and the use of the material is carefully monitored, our foundation will also set up a small computer project for the school. The realization of the multi-purpose library will reduce the number of drop-outs, since the school with this study facility will be very attractive for the students. This will reduce the number of early school leavers.

In addition, the building will have a social function for the entire community.

If a child enjoys going to school, it develops better and its performance will improve.
