The Khmer Foundation has been very successful in producing results and is cost efficient in supporting poor and orphaned children under its care to meet all their basic needs, and to provide access to quality education.
Since the founding of the organization in 1994, more than 1,000 children have been raised some from as young as 5 years old and mostly until 18 years old. Over the last 10 years, both Homes have welcomed and taken care of 403 children. 53 of these children have graduated from universities in Cambodia and Thailand. Ten children are currently attending the universities. We are proud of these results.
The Khmer Foundation has operated with a budget that is very small compared to similar organizations having similar objectives in Cambodia and with a similar number of supported children. Up until 2012, the average yearly budget was around $100,000 to cater to the yearly needs of 100-120 children. By comparison, other organizations’ budget and operational costs can easily be 2 to 5 times higher.
Most importantly, as of 2013, and since 19 years, a major part of the Khmer Foundation’s budget (more than 80% of it) has been supporting the children’s development activities and related costs.
