 WORKSHOP

“HIV/AIDS projects in Cambodia – Quo Vadis?”  from 27-28/10/'10

Meta House/German-Cambodian-Cultural-Centre, Phnom Penh 

As international donors might reduce their funds due to the financial crises and the HIV prevalence rate in Cambodia probably remains steady below 1% during the next years, NGOs have to start thinking about the efficiency and intensity of their HIV/AIDS programs and should review their target groups and think about a greater involvement of the PLHIV. Therefore, the workshop provided a panel for NGOs working in the area of HIV/AIDS and to give the CEOs and PCs of these NGOs the possibility to exchange experiences among themselves and also with representatives of the PLHIV- network, to share knowledge and to think about the further developments together. At the end of the workshop participants understood the importance of sustainability of the programs and organizations and developed ideas on how to make their HIV/AIDS projects more sustainable. 

Events

STAND UP - TAKE ACTION! 17th - 19th of September '10

STAR Kampuchea organized events on the 17th and 19th of September with the support of the aid organization Salvation Centre Cambodia (SCC). 

The first event, which took place on the 17th of September, raised funds for the SCC and brought awareness to the issues of global poverty to community members and visitors to Phnom Penh.  The second event, which took place on the 19th of September, included activities taking place at an SCC school in Somrong Mean Chey community.World leaders promised to try to end extreme poverty by 2015 and pledged to support the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). Our activity was organized “to make noise!”  We, Cambodian and foreign volunteers, stood up together! On Sunday, the 17th of September, we collected donations from local businesses, tourists, and   Cambodians. By educating and working with tourists and Cambodians, we stood up and made noise in the streets of Phnom Penh.  As a result, we raised awareness of the MDG pledges and advocated for world leaders to honor their word. We are proud to say that despite heavy rains, we persevered and collected about 325 $. The money will be used for school uniforms for the children of the SCC school in Somrong Mean Chey community. Some of the funds were also used to buy plants and food for the children.

The volunteers, with support from STAR Kampuchea staff, visited the school in the morning on the 19th of September.  The 50 students at the school supported by SCC, including students with HIV, were invited to spend time with the volunteers and will receive the new clothing. The activity began at 9:00 AM with a discussion, and then the volunteers taught the students children's songs in English. Then, a garden was created by the children, teachers, staff, and volunteers. This was followed by measuring the students for their new uniforms.  At the end, the children received nutritious food and clean water. The uniforms for the children will be created by a local income generation program within the same community. In the future, the children will learn how to take care of the garden by themselves, learning gardening skills and therefore another method of self-sufficiency.

Thanks to everyone , who was involved!
