Sustainable Community Project (SCP)
LHA’s Sustainable Community Project (Formerly Food for Education) assists families in targeted communities around Siem Reap with the financial burden of sending their children to school.
Along with the delivery of food materials to help families maintain a constant food supply, LHA communicates to parents and village elders the benefits of a Child’s school education. During these community visits LHA also shares healthcare and environmental information to help the local communities live a higher quality of life.
Peace Home Building
Peace Homes are built by Monks for very poor families, many of whom have suffered from the scourge of domestic violence. The homes are built for the owner and LHA provides the physical structure, but we rely on the family and the larger community (including the donor) to create peace, happiness and hope for the family and children. The ‘Peace’ houses get their name from the commitment that families give to the monks when they move into one of these homes – no family violence, no drinking or drugs, no gambling, and children must attend school.

Through the provision of basic food (e.g. rice, soy sauce, and cooking oil) LHA attempts to ease the financial burden many Khmer families face in providing for their families. Through the donation of such materials, and the message of the value of children’s education, the capacity for a family to send their children to school is greatly increased.
LHA provides school kits (school uniforms, school bags, notebooks, paper, pens and pencils) to children who need them. The distribution of the kits is done once a year, usually at the beginning of the school year.
