To sponsor a child is to see it grow, evolve and become autonomous. Indeed, a sponsor is a real support for the child, encouraging him to give the best of himself. Follow him and help him blossom every day!
The child you are sponsoring, you know him. You first receive an introductory sheet about him and then about his news through his testimonies (letters, drawings…). You can also come in Phnom Penh at the shelter to visit your sponsor child by contacting us.
Children in Sok Sabay have suffered a lot in their past. Sponsorship helps to create bonds of solidarity with the child, which will help him to blossom and will also serve as therapy. Thus, the child benefits from a real openness and develops his sociability and curiosity.
Sponsoring a child at Sok Sabay is a long-term commitment, where you will build an emotional and caring connection that may last many years. You will be establishing a loving and caring relationship with a child that has been deprived of love, self-esteem and opportunities.
You will engage in regular letter exchanges with your sponsored child, send small presents for birthdays and special occasions and – if your travels take you to Phnom Penh – visit the child to participate in face-to-face activities, under Sok Sabay’s supervision.
You may need to be very patient and supportive at the beginning, as some of the children living in Sok Sabay have survived very difficult and challenging circumstances, but as the relationship matures over time you will share in the success and affection of someone special.
A sponsorship starts from just USD 100 a month. Three dollars and thirty cents a day. This is much less than the cost of a cup of coffee, and can mean so much for a child in Cambodia.
Sponsoring a child is available for individuals and corporations, and it’s a wonderful way of ensuring that your donation directly improves the life of a child.
For 10 years now, in the beginning of June, the association is audited. This year, the audit will be conducted by Grant Thornton, one of the world’s largest professional services network of independent accounting, certifying the transparency of our accounts, the good internal management of our structure as well as the use made of the funds received. This process allows us to have a rigorous control over our finances, where we also carry out a pre-control with the help of an independent accounting firm hired specifically for the preparation of the audit. Our annual report is available online and accessible to all, where you can read our annual budget.
Every child deserves a strong start – the best chance for a successful future. But too many children right here aren’t getting the opportunity to reach their full potential. You can help change that. If you sponsor a child, you’ll give them the gift of a brighter future and hope. Give him the strengh to success and the attention he deserves.
Thank you for choosing a child to sponsor at Sok Sabay! You have our gratitude.
