My story

[p][b]Summary[/b][/p][p]ABCs and Rice is a school that provides free education, food, medical and dental care for 220 needy children and their families in Cambodia. In addition, it provides supplies, shoes, socks, uniforms and transportation for these children aged 4 years and up. Graduates from this program are supported in to post-secondary programs of their choice and are supported in education until that support is no longer required. This program also enables disabled adults to grow produce and operate a fish farm to help sustain themselves and assist in feeding the students.[/p][p][b]Challenge[/b][/p][p]Today more than 40% of the population lives on less than $2 a day. Ninety percent of the poor live in rural areas and female- headed households are amongst the poorest. These Cambodians have an average of 5.1 years of education. There are high levels of malnutrition.[/p][p][b]Solution[/b][/p][p]ABCs and Rice is a school that provides education, food and healthcare for 220 needy children and their families in Cambodia. It provides books, equipment, clothing and transportation. ABCs and Rice feeds each child two hot meals per day (often the only food they eat) and sends rice home to their families to encourage attendance.[/p][p][b]Long-Term Impact[/b][/p][p]Feeding these 220 children in Cambodia, and sending rice home to their families is saving these peoples' lives. Not only is ABCs and Rice improving the health of several hundred people, it is also providing an education. Two of our first graduates are in medical school, another is training to be a chef, a fourth is studying agriculture, and 4 are already graduated and beginning their careers.[/p][p][b]Resources[/b][/p][p][url=http://www.abcrice.org/][b]http:/?/?www.abcrice.org[/b][/url][/p][p] [url=https://www.facebook.com/ABCsandRice/][b]Our community Facebook page[/b][/url][/p][p] [url=http://www.abcrice.org/][b]Home page, website[/b][/url][/p][p] [url=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VbWXkvq2jJk][b]These children have BIG DREAM[/b][/url][b]S[/b][/p]
