Cambodia Youth Center Computer Lab Project
Kampong Cham Youth Center is an important social initiative that came to life in November 2015 by joint efforts of our local partner in Cambodia; Mekong Charity and Australian Relief Organisation.
Located in rural Cambodia, this key project provides a safe boarding environment to 45 orphans at high school level. Since inception, Mekong Charity covers the ongoing running costs of the center including rent, wage of a dedicated tutor for the children as well as daily sustenance for the orphans.
During its establishment, Australian Relief Organisation provided funding to purchase the furniture and white goods for the complex. With orphan sponsorships collected from the Australian public, our organisation also provides financial support to needy children on a quarterly base.
Over the past two years, social impact of our initiative was remarkable. Thanks to a safe boarding environment where meals are also provided, resident students were able to attend public education, remained in health and excelled in their studies.
Thanks to our dedicated tutor – who assisted students in studies after school hours and over the weekends, many orphan students were gained access at universities, won scholarship at private universities and secured employment with extra skills gained.

Proposed Computer Lab Project for Kampong Cham Youth Center
With our newly proposed project, we aim to further advance the studying prospects for our orphan students. Our project includes purchase of 15 computers, 15 screens, 2 all-in-one printers, a router and yearly internet subscription to the facility. We already have the table for the computer labs.
Primary objective of this project is to provide internet access to resident students under supervision, so they can improve their study research. A secondary and indirect benefit of this program will be the IT skills gained by resident orphans, in which will help them finding employment after their stay at the center.
Overall cost of this initiative is AU$ 12,500 and donors have the option of fully or partially sponsor the project.
So far, we raised 16% of the required for the project.
