Family Sponsorship Program Cambodia
Pha Kimmak is not only our translator in Cambodia, but also our friend, guide, advisor and social worker.
He has done similar work with a larger NGO and is very knowledgeable about that fine line between helping a person/family without making them dependent. He suggested that providing a very poor family with the basics for 3 years is a good amount of time to lift them out of dire poverty. In this time Kimmak will personally visit the family and teach them, suggest things, help them to get work and education. Every family will be different, but the idea is that within a few years we would ‘wean them off’ the financial support and they will be in a position to support themselves.
We are wondering if anyone would be interested in making a small ongoing contribution such as $5 a month, or $60 a year. Kimmak would need a commitment of 3 years so that he doesn’t make promises to families that he can’t keep.
The SVPI team will provide any donor with financial reports that track their money from the deposit until the point that it is withdrawn by Kimmak. From Kimmak’s side, he will provide details about the family, regular updates and photographs.
We ask for direct bank transfers so we can keep fees to an absolute minimum. We will use a separate SVPI bank account to the volunteer payments so this money is never confused and used for another purpose. Please be 100% assured that aside from a possible international bank transfer fee, every single cent donated will go to the families. Absolutely no administration fees etc…
