Hope Of Children (Orphanage)
Hope Of Children (HOC) was established in 1992 by Buddhist monk Muny Vansaveth as an orphanage in Noria Monastery.
In 2011, we moved to the current Takok Village, aiming to become a vocational training facility for children. We opened CAFE HOC, a place of income, in the city, and it continues to this day.
Towards autonomous operation of HOC
HOC operates with the support of donations and volunteer activities from various people.
With this support, the children's home and the HOC center are operated, but on the other hand, the crops of the fields in the HOC are cooked at the cafe and provided to customers, which leads to income.
In the future, I would like to gradually increase the sales of the café so that children can run it on their own.
Support for social advancement of children
We support children in various ways so that they can go out into society with confidence.
First and foremost are life skills. The children are responsible for cleaning, washing, and cooking.
Next, skills such as English, Japanese, and PC. The HOC Center is responsible for improving these skills. Children study at the HOC center after school.
There are children who use what they have learned here to acquire Japanese language proficiency tests, and children who study further at Japanese schools. In addition, some children go to Japan to learn technology as technical intern trainees.
Then there are practical skills such as cooking, customer service, and accounting. The cafe is responsible for this. The cafe is visited not only by Cambodians, but also by Japanese, European and American customers. Children use and practice the Japanese and English they learned at the center in a café where various languages are spoken. In addition, the children are cooking daily at the HOC as described above, and are practicing this at the cafe.
We want children to make the most of these opportunities, improve their skills, and go out into society with confidence.
Efforts of HOC
Each child goes to school, but after classes are over, they study at the HOC center so that they can acquire English, Japanese, and computer skills. And we are working to connect to the future path, such as acquiring a Japanese proficiency test.
Cafe HOC was established to create sustainable operating funds for orphanages. This café has a wide variety of customers from Japan and overseas, so it is a place for practical training in language and customer service.
The orphanage has fields. The crops harvested here will be part of the children's daily food and cafe HOC menu. The crops in the fields are grown using organic farming methods, with the hope that children and customers will be able to eat healthy foods.
This website is operated by children as a job training. Supported by NPO KAKEHASHI
