What attracted me to volunteer with Asian Hope in the first place is the compassion behind their goals and work. They are fully dedicated not only to bettering the lives of children and families in Cambodia, but to helping them reach their maximum potential through education and empowerment. During each of my volunteering experiences at the Denver headquarters, all of the employees have been extremely kind and accommodating, and it is clear that they are committed to their work, as shown through the events they put together, the time the invest, and their general attitudes. The support they are able to provide to so many Cambodians is life-changing.
I had the opportunity to volunteer with Asian Hope on a few occasions now. They are an amazing organization that has shown true compassion and strength for empowering all their program participants. I would recommend them to anyone!
I came to work at an Asian Hope school over five years ago, planning to stay two or three years and then look for a different NGO to transfer into. I realized that I was even happier with Asian Hope than I'd expected, and I'd love to work for them for years to come. Asian Hope's leadership has learned and changed so much since it was founded, and they're still fighting hard to grow and improve this organization in order to best serve Cambodian children. It's been my pleasure to serve under them and partner with them, and I've loved seeing lives changed through Asian Hope - from my own to so many of my students'.
I taught at one of the Asian Hope schools for 14 years. I have seen first-hand how the lives of many Cambodian children have been altered dramatically because they were given a top-notch, free education through Asian Hope.
Asian Hope has been living by their mission "Protect, Educate, Empower" for more than 15 years and as a summer school teacher, I received about as much respect if not more so, as a regular staff member. I was deeply impacted during my four weeks at Asian Hope Schools. Specifically serving at Logos International School, I received so much assistance adjusting to the culture, and the routine of this organization. I felt so supported and knew that this organization was doing its mission and going and above my expectations. I felt well-supported, appreciated and appreciated the impact that Asian Hope is making over there in Cambodia. I had the opportunity to invest in relationships that I know that will be long-lasting and will continue to impact my way I view education overseas. I know that Asian Hope will continue to change the youth of Cambodia.
Asian Hope has been changing lives for the past 15 years, and I am blessed to know many of the Cambodian young adults who are part of this program. These rising leaders have been given a second chance for receiving excellent education and hope through the redeeming love and almighty power of God. Asian Hope continues to improve the services offered to the original Cambodians invited to be blessed by AH as well as countless young children each year. Anyone can spend a good deal of time researching Asian Hope through their website: https://www.asianhope.org/ . I encourage you, however, to take time to visit either the headquarters in Denver, CO, or Cambodia to meet the leadership and the very lives involved in this great ministry today! I spent a month this summer volunteering at the summer school program for Asian Hope's international school, LOGOS. I thoroughly enjoyed the time meeting students and families who entrust their educational investments with Asian Hope!
Asian Hope has given me an opportunity get an good education. I was able to experience love by them, and having hope in them. They have been there for me ever since I was in Asian Hope. If it was not for them, then I would not be able to have good education. They have done so much for me and my families. I just want to thank you for all the hard works that Asian Hope have done help me and the other kids as well.
I have been involved in the Asian Hope ministry since 2001. It has been a privilege and a blessing to watch these young, abandoned children grow and mature into faithful, self-sufficient young adults. Asian Hope has provided for the physical needs of 30 Cambodian children, along with meeting their educational and spiritual needs. God has given them amazing opportunities to graduate from high school and continue on to graduate from colleges and universities in the US, Thailand and India. Upon their graduation, these students return to Cambodia to reach out and serve the people of their country. My family and I have volunteered in Cambodia and also here in Colorado to love and support the Asian Hope students. They are family to us.
In the summer of 2012 we volunteered to house an Asian Hope student in our home. Mareena told her story to me and my wife as the summer progressed. She told us how she was taken from the streets to be educated and eventually awarded a scholarship come to the US to attend university. Her dedication to her studies and Asian Hopes support was a true contribution to our society and the world can not be matched. Marrena so affected me I will raise the funds to go to Asian Hopes facilities in Cambodia and volunteer my resources to help this outstanding organisation.
We couldn't recommend an organization more highly! One of Asian Hope's initiatives includes equipping future Cambodian leaders with a college education in the US. One of the college students (Marena) lived with my parents last summer- the more we learned about Asian Hope through Marena's stories, the more impressed we became with the organization. We wholeheartedly support this organization and will continue to recommend it to others because of their record or stewardship and effective change!
My husband and I have hosted 2 college students with Asian Hope. We have been so impressed with the level of education that they have acquired through this organization, the students ability to speak excellent English, their strong work ethic, and the honest appreciation what Asian Hope has done in their lives! Given the history of the children affiliated with Asian Hope, this organization is definitely following their mission statement.
Hopes and dreams are being realized through the eyes of children who had no hope and no dreams prior to living at Asian Hope. Now, each young adult has a strong faith in Christ, outstanding educational opportunities and a heart's desire to serve those less fortunate within the country of Cambodia. I encourage you to read their stories. It will touch your heart!
Everyone I have come in contact with in this organizagion has an authentic heart for youth in general and kids in Cambodia specifically. I was so impressed that my family and I are jumping on board with Asian Hope and will be moving to Cambodia this fall.
