Our Programmes

With our singular focus to alleviate poverty and improve livelihoods of the underprivileged in Southeast Asia,
we believe in more than just “giving a man a fish to feed for the day”.
Our strategy and programme development are much more than just short-term fixes.
Long-term and self-sustainable solutions are guiding principles that underpin our programmes.

Education×

Across cultures, regions and generations, education has been the most effective tool for upward mobility. Since 2007, Hope Villages has touched the lives of more than 2500 children from age ranging four to sixteen. To supplement the local education curriculum taught in Khmer, our programmes simply focus on the English language and essential computer skills.

These have proven popular as Cambodia evolves and attracts increased foreign investments. Graduates from our Hope Education Centres in Phnom Penh and Phum Trea have progressed towards university education, others have found doors opening to them in Phnom Penh with job searches much easier than many of their local counterparts.

 I’m happy and blessed that Ms Arfat invited me to join Hope Villages in 2008. As a former teacher, my experience was leveraged to help develop the English curriculum for the children as well as the train the trainer programme for the Education Center.

Ten years later, it’s really fulfilling to see some of the students do well in life. Some of them are pursuing a University education today. The experience has been very enriching for both myself as a volunteer as well as for the Hope Villages communities.

Medical×

Medical and healthcare are not easily accessible for many villagers as they are either too expensive or too far away from their villages. As a result, many villagers neglect their health or have poor knowledge of preventive healthcare. Hope Villages addresses this gap by providing medical support and healthcare education to the villagers in our Cambodia projects.

Since 2004 Singapore-based medical and healthcare professionals have been teaming up with Cambodian local partners to consultation, basic medication and healthcare knowledge to the villagers. This means the villages have more access to medical support and regular healthcare education.

Food & Necessities×

Throughout the years, the villagers have received essential food supplies like rice and cooking oil, clothes, books, and toys for the children. They have been extremely grateful with items that have been graciously given by our generous donors.

 My involvement in Hope Villages began in 2014. On my first visit to Kampong Speu, I was very touched by how the development at Kampong Speu had positively impacted the lives of 116 formerly homeless and landless families. I soon learnt that Hope Villages has also helped to transform the community in Phum Trea especially in the learning of English. I feel motivated to do my part to help uplift the community at both Kampong Speu and Phum Trea. As I believe education is the key to their sustainable livelihood, I am encouraged to help them pursue knowledge, acquire relevant skills and develop their self-confidence.

Together with the land-plot allocation, the homeless resettled by Hope Villages are also given a small plot of land for crop plantation such as rice, chilli, tapioca and moringa. More than just providing land and seedlings, Hope Villages also ensure that the villagers are equipped with sufficient knowledge on agriculture and are up-skilled with environmentally friendly farming techniques to improve their harvest yield year on year.

Previously fishermen, whose source of income was challenged by environmental and climate change, now own a plot of farming land which is beyond a dream come true. Villagers feel they are in better control of their source of income where returns are more predictable and rewarding.

 I have always had a passion for helping to create new and sustainable livelihood for those in need. When this happens, communities progress and things move on.

With Hope Villages, sustainable agriculture has been my focus. We work with the villagers to plant crops including rice, fruit, and the disease-fighting superfood Moringa which has received much spotlight in the recent years.

It gives me great pride to see how our villagers are contributing to world environmental and health issues. The natural defence mechanism of the moringa tress not only contribute positively to climate change, the antioxidant properties of the leaves protect people against health diseases.

Funds raised by Hope Villages build environmentally friendly settlements. Our volunteers actively scouted out homeless squatters who were on the move. Many held day jobs from tuk-tuk drivers to fishermen but limited earnings through their lifetime gave them little hope of ever building and owning a home and a piece of land of their own.

Hope Villages partnered with the Cambodian government to resettle the local poor and underprivileged using their social land concession policy where NGOs are given 100 hectres of land to resettle the local homeless. Other than the land assignment, NGOs like Hope Villages are solely responsible for identifying the homeless for land-plot allocation, building homes and supporting infrastructure including roads, waste management and water source. Taking a holistic approach to community development, Hope Villages also provides healthcare and life skills including agriculture development, education and other learning programmes.

Waste to Energy×

Hope Villages communities have built environmentally-friendly systems to break down and convert organic waste into bio fuel for cooking, lighting and compost for fertilisers.


How it works:
The biodigester is fed with organic material such as animal manure which is broken down by bacteria in an oxygen-free environment. It will then produce renewable energy made up of methane, carbon dioxide and other materials.
