Srey Leap

Srey Leap

Srey Leap is 7 years old. Her single mother died last year in childbirth and her grandmother was too poor to send her to school. Srey Leap's cousin, one of our college dorm students, asked us to take her to live at the Refuge Center. When she first came she was very upset (pictured below) and wouldn't talk or smile. She was six at the time, but needed to be put in 1st year Kindergarten because of lack of schooling. She is now smiling and loving the Center so much that she doesn't like visiting the village where her grandmother lives on holidays. She is now in level 2 Kindergarten and doing really well in school.  She is learning English, which will help her obtain a better paid position in the future (poor children in Cambodia rarely have the opportunity to study English). Note: She had a cyst removed from her neck which is why she is pictured with gauze around her neck.

Manna Mourng

Manna was born to a prostitute. His mom had been rescued by an organization in Cambodia but soon returned to her profession. The couple who runs our Refuge Center adopted him. They are a poor couple - the wife had had 2 miscarriages which resulted in large medical debt. Because Manna is sponsored, they now not only have a child of their own, but are also able to send him to school. As resident staff, food is provided for the family too. Manna is now 8 years old and is often in the top 3 of his class in school. Music and English classes are also provided at the Center; Manna has taken to the drums and excels at that too!

Sponsorship FAQs

Why does Bold Hope require more than one sponsor per child?

Bold Hope sets itself apart from other sponsorship organizations through the program it has developed which allows it to work in each individual country without restrictions on what it can provide or how much things cost. Child sponsorship costs are determined by which needs local leaders aim to meet and how much it costs to meet those needs. Therefore, the cost of sponsorship and its inclusions are unique to each country. As a result, sponsorship is more costly in some places than others. In an attempt to make sponsorship more affordable for donors, we have allotted more than one sponsorship slot for each child. No matter how many sponsors there are for each child, your prayers and support are priceless. Your involvement goes a long way towards making an eternal impact for your sponsored child.

Does the family really get the money?
Choosing to make a difference by sponsoring a child through Bold Hope provides the unique opportunity to develop a true relationship with one specific child. However, monthly sponsorship donations are pooled in order to make the greatest impact. What does this mean? It means that because of your generosity, and that of other Bold Hope child sponsors, children around the globe not only get their basic needs met, but also have the chance to thrive and have HOPE for their futures. Sponsorship funds long-term programs and initiatives, fostering long-term relationship with the aim of empowering not only individual sponsored children, but their entire communities as well.

We work in partnership with local churches and missionaries to ensure that the children enrolled in the sponsorship program are truly receiving the benefits of sponsorship. Instead of giving money directly to the family of each sponsored child, local leaders are responsible for things like purchasing food and supplies, or paying school fees. We also require regular reports from the sponsorship program directors to ensure that the needs of each sponsored child are being met. Each program is reviewed at least once annually.
Can I interact with my sponsored child?
At Bold Hope, we encourage you to connect with the child you support. From mission trips to child sponsorships, it is our HOPE that you will build and strengthen relationships with those whom you have connected. We also provide the opportunity to write letters to your sponsored child; when you have the time, you can submit a letter through our website. Simply provide us with your name, the sponsored child's name and your email. Then, start writing your greeting!

Once you finish your letter, it will be translated it into your child's language. It will likely take an estimated two to three weeks before your sponsored child receives the letter. Once the child receives the letter and has it read to them, he/she can respond by writing a letter back or drawing a picture.

Bold Hope also sends updates on our sponsored children twice annually so you can stay up-to-date on the news in Cambodia and know what's going on in your child's life.
