Cambodia Clean Water Wells and Health Education Program History Water Sanitation Hope International Project Water wells "Established in 1975, HOPE International Development Agency's mission is to enable people in the developed world to connect with people in the poorest communities on earth through compassionate giving and other opportunities to help. This year alone, our work will positively impact the lives of more than one million people worldwide." Thank you for listening Midnight Vigil Killing Field [1975-1979 The Khmer Rouge/Pol Pot's Regime]
The Communist Party of Kampuchea was ruling during this period. The party leader, Pol Pot was inspired by the communist party in China. Insufficient staff (an average of 50 students per teacher)
Minimum fund
Teachers with minimum education themselves Hey Do you ever wonder,
what type of education do your teachers have? Bachelors? Masters? A Ph.D? In Canada, it is required to have a bachelor's degree in education and a provincial teacher's certificate to teach. However, in many countries around the world, there are no requirements at all.

If you want to be a teacher right now, Civil war (1970-1975). Started by
the Communist Party of Kampuchea with both the North and South Vietnam Communist Organizations
Government forces of Cambodia, with the support of the United States
Repubslic of Vietnam (South Vietnam).
The creation of Democratic Kampuchea and the beginning of the Cambodian Genocide. Of Cambodia's 14.4 million people, half of the population is under the age of 22! Children in Cambodia have many barriers standing between them and a solid education. Poverty is one of the major problems, but so is the lack of education spending in the country and the rare learning opportunities that are available for students beyond the elementary level. hardships encountered include: Today's education system is still being rebuilt after much of the knowledge and experience that were stripped away during the Pol Pot years. Both the primary and secondary education systems have been changed into direct translations of the Vietnamese terms

Little funds are available for school's facilities maintenance and proper teaching materials (such as computers and even basic stationary)

The teacher to student ratio is also very high, which often leads to an inefficient learning environment.

Only 14.4% of the population can afford to attend university
Here is how the educational system looks today... Bio-sand water filters Lack of access to safe water, combined with poor sanitation and hygiene conditions increases the risk of illnesses causing diarrhea, one of the leading causes of child deaths in Cambodia. Some water sanitary methods... Contaminated water wells are treated with chlorine and kills the harmful bacteria. And in 24 hours the chlorine is pumped out and the well is safe to use again! HOW IT WORKS The dirt and bacteria becomes trapped in layers that help trap and filter out the harmful bacteria. Now you're left with clean filtered water. CLEAN FRESH WATER For the majority of the poor this is but a dream Women and children walk miles everyday to collect dirty, contaminated water from infested ponds and fields. THE SOLUTION Safe, drinkable water lies just 100 feet under the poor villages of Cambodia. Through cooperating with Hope International, we can help build water wells and make communities in Cambodia healthier and better. There were two wars happening one after another,
Cambodian-Vietnamese War (1975-1989) was between the Democratic Kampuchea and Socialist Republic of Vietnam. With the final Victory of South Vietnam, it marked the end of the Khmer Rouge and Cambodian Genocide. Education Other health and sanitation issues include...

-According to the UN, 12 million people die of preventable diseases every year, such as dysentery, malaria, or from other factors related to malnutrition and lack of medical care. Here is a look at what the lives for the majority of the population are like currently.. DID YOU KNOW? Studies show that simple practice of washing hands can reduce diarrheal diseases by greater than 40% Story SVAY RIENG PROVINCE, Cambodia, 4 May 2007 Rice farmer Vorn Mao is looking forward to the rainy season to flood his family's dry and dusty rice paddies. But for him and his wife Roeung, water not only provides a livelihood. It also brings back great anguish. Together they looked after seven grandchildren while the parents worked in the capital, Phnom Penh. During a water shortage a little over 6 years ago, their five-year-old granddaughter Chenda died from drinking unsafe water. The grandparents recall Chenda having a high fever and diarrhea and had died overnight at the district hospital Her mother returned from Phnom Penh only to see her daughter lifeless. And here is a video to sum all this up.... -Living in Canada gives us the privilege to have access to Universal Healthcare, yet many of those who are in poverty often have no access at all to medical services at all.
-With basic and better knowledge about HIV/AIDS, for example, may help many people to reduce HIV infection rates and infant mortality rate Now we are going to show you a short clip on the effects of Pol Pot regime have on the education system in Cambodia.
