I have been supporting Asian Hope for over 12 years. Gowning up with both my parents and family playing an active role in the organization and now my family. I have seen the success and impact Asian Hope has not only on its program participants, but through the relationships that have been formed over the years.
I have donated to Asian Hope through the Golf Marathon. My daughter has been involved with Asian Hope for over 2 years now and we have come to support not only her, but the programs of Asian Hope. The stories and impact it has on the lives of so many children and families in Cambodia is so inspiring. We would recommend Asian Hope to any one of our friends and families.
My family began supporting Asian Hope about 6 or 7 years ago when my friend Tom began working for Asian Hope. Over the years we have raised our support and contributed to more areas. We have helped sponsor scholarships for college education, the village outreach, and a student going to school. It has been a joy for my family and I to see how our support has helped change lives. We enjoy reading the monthly newsletter and keeping up with what is going on. Perhaps the greatest thing I have experienced has been a phone call from a student in college, thanking us for donating and helping with their college education and the letters from our friend Mongkol and his teachers telling us how much they are enjoying the school. I believe Asian Hope is a great organization that is doing some very great work on the front lines. It is a pleasure to be a small part of their work.
I've been donating to Asian Hope monthly for nearly 2 years. I'm impressed by the quality of their work, their commitment to their causes and the continual evaluation of their programs. I look forward to maintaining my relationship with them and seeing what great things will be done in the future.
It has been a short time since first learning about Asian Hope. Already, I have been able to meet people living and serving in Cambodia and a student that is currently studying in college thanks to the supporters of the ministry. Such a large impact from such a close-feeling group.
I have been involved with raising funds for Asian Hope for about 3 years. One of the things that drew me to Asian Hope is the unique model that they have developed over the years, first with their commitment to a quality education for the orphans in their homes by creating their own school, to then committing to those same kids a positive, post-secondary education. What tremendous undertaking and gift to those students. And of course, the bigger purpose is for the these kids to make a positive impact in their country for the kingdom of God. And, as the mission of Asian Hope has evolved to education, they have created three great schools, each meeting different needs in Phenom Pen, that deliver quality education to a wide spectrum of kids, and fulfill the command to love our neighbors as ourselves. I am proud to be associated with Asian Hope and I hope to be able to influence others to get excited about their mission, as well.
Asian Hope is doing a tremendous job of helping children and the younger generation of Cambodia to gain help, encouragement, and education, after the very destructive measures taken in the '70s to get rid of the educated. As these children are being taken care of in the orphanage physically, spiritually, and educationally, they are given "hope and opportunity"! I have had the wonderful privilege of personally meeting and sponsoring several of these children, and I'm so impressed with their character, commitment to better themselves, and then go back to their country (after some have had the opportunity to attend and graduate from college in the US)...and become leaders in Cambodia in many different areas of society. Each of them are such a tremendous asset to help move their country forward in positive ways!
I am very impressed with the work that is being done to help change the lives of the Cambodian children for the positive! They are getting a "top notch" education in one of the best facilities in Cambodia. After graduating from high school, several have been able to obtain scholarships and attend college in the USA, with the promise of going back to their country as leaders in various fields, which will help their country tremendously.
Asian Hope ministers to youth, from preschool through young adults, by operating three schools, and two children’s homes in and near Phnom Penh. Unlike other ministries that I have seen, Asian Hope, has the goal of providing opportunities for the children, not just until they are 18, but to be educated through college and to then become leaders in Cambodia. I traveled to Phnom Penh to observe this work and after that time, I came away impressed with the quality of the service provided these youth. I have also met some of the same students during internships times in the U.S.
My wife and I have supported Asian Hope for over 2 years. I have met 5 of the young men and women who were fortunate enough to be raised with Christian principles in the warmth and loving atmosphere of the Asian Hope orphanage in Cambodia. They are now in the US being educated to return to revilalize their country with God's wisdom and the knowledge they have gleaned from a US college education. It has been exciting to think that our donation is key to helping rebuild an entire country through the efforts of Asian Hope!
It has been a joy and a privilege to engage with the Asian Hope students this summer during their internships. As they get ready to begin the Fall Semester at their various colleges, I am sad to see them go, but optimistic for the future of Cambodia because of the talent and passion these students have to revitalize Cambodia!
