The Cambodian Community Dream Organization (CCDO) works tirelessly for the health, wellness, and education of villages neighboring Siem Reap every day. CCDO provides schools in these rural communities with resources that help children thrive—these resources include everything from basic supplies to faculty, libraries, and latrines.
Since 2011, CCDO has also led a Breakfast Program that feeds nearly 1,000 children every morning before school. In addition to supplying communities with a well, giving them access to clean water, CCDO also provides qualifying families with two pigs and the resources they need to create a local pig farm.
This home provides secure housing, counseling, pre- and post-natal medical care, job skills training, and day care for at-risk pregnant women and their babies. Currently, TWCCTW is helping to fund their Master Development Plan that, in addition to bringing their 2-1/2 acre facility up to a serviceable standard, will also enable them to materially increase the number of women they are able to serve.
The Good Shepherd Sisters’ (GSS) Center was first established in Bangkok over fifty years ago. It’s one of our favorite places to support in Thailand. They do absolutely first-rate work caring for impoverished, marginalized women and children from local slums, some of which are right next to the Center. GSS provides pre-school education for kids from the Klong Toey slum, preparing them for government schools. Separate classrooms are provided for more than one hundred three-to-five-year-old children. Lodging and loving care are given to about a dozen at-risk women and their babies. They receive safe housing, nourishment, healthcare, counseling, and whatever else is required for them to return to their communities with self-sufficiency.
