ABCs and Rice
Nourishment for the Children of Cambodia
ABCs and Rice is different to most Non-Government Organizations (NGO) schools in Siem Reap. In addition to providing a much-needed free education in English and Khmer, we offer various food programs to nourish the children’s bodies as well as their minds.
Education in Cambodia comes at a cost, perhaps small by western standards, but often unattainable to the impoverished in the region. ABCs and Rice recognize education as a right that every child should have, as well as the key to breaking the cycle of poverty.
ABCs and Rice offer free education, nutrition and healthcare to the rural children of Siem Reap in the Sala and Kroligne Village areas. It is a safe-haven for children otherwise exposed to child labour, abuse or worse.
Families struggle through overbearing poverty; and in attempts to get at least some of their children an education, they often leave one or more children home to work. ABC’s works closely with the village chief and key community members to target those most in need, and offers a hand up.
ABCs and Rice differ to most NGO schools in Siem Reap because we feed the children’s bodies as well as their minds.
