The Friendship Association For Cambodian Child Hope was founded in 2008 by a group of committed community members, and continues to grow and support hundreds of students in rural Cambodia at two school locations.

Background: Breaking the Cycle of Poverty
For the last 10 years the Lolei Learning Center and School has provided the children with school uniforms, study material and most important free additional education in subjects as Khmer language (national language), Mathematics, English and Computer. The Learning Center offers daily lessons (2 to 3 hours) for almost 300 children and therefore complements the basic education children get at local primary or secondary schools. In 2018, FACCH will open a second Learning Center at the Kouk Trach village some 5km from Lolei temples.
The school also aims to give poor, orphaned and rural children the opportunity to go to high school and later study at the university. Scholarships are the only way to cover the costs for uniforms, school material and school fees.
About 25 boys aged 7 to 15 receive free housing at the Lolei School (Boarding School). The premises have been upgraded over the last few months (toilets, shower, beds) and the food has been improved.
All these children are the future of Cambodia and need all the support they can get.
