What can you support?
- Financial adoption of a child :
The costs incurred for a child at our school include the salary of the teachers, the rent of the land on which the school is located, school materials, and also the food package that is provided to the families. The total amounts to 20 euros per month per child. For this amount you ensure that one child can go to school.
- Education Fund :
SOID does not offer secondary education itself, but started in 2013 with an Education Fund to enable talented children to continue their studies at the state school. Every student needs a rucksack and a school uniform and has to pay their teachers tuition fees. In theory, state education in Cambodia is free, but because teachers earn little money, they also ask for an amount from their pupils. For each child, the total costs that SOID pays is 40 - 60 euros / per month, depending on the type of school (Secondary School or High School).

- Dental care :
A toothbrush and toothpaste are luxury items that these children do not have at home. Every child therefore has their own toothbrush at school. Before the lessons start we brush our teeth together. Still, the teeth of many children at our school require extra care because it has often been neglected for years.
- Purchase of rics :
The children receive a portion of rice to take home per month when they regularly come to school. Because of this extra rice, the children do not have to work or contribute to the family. For 60 euros, one family receives a portion of rice each month for a year.
- In general :
Also the normal everyday costs have to be paid, it includes teachers and director’s salaries, rent of the land, fruit on Friday and so much more…
- Medical care :
Sometimes children or family members of our children need urgent medical care. The people of the Veal Village can also call on SOID for this.
