As of 2012, the team of social workers supports 325 kids, visiting their houses and schools on a regular basis to monitor and follow up their statuses.
“Anatha” (which means helpless in Cambodian) was a program created in 2005 as a result of a collaboration between Spanish volunteers, the Khmer youth group “Initiatives of Change” and the Apostolic Prefecture of Battambang. The program’s objective was to help poor children go to school and prevent dropouts where the children work to help their families fulfil basic needs.
The program supports the family in different ways: by providing all schooling materials, distributing sacks of rice and basic hygiene products, facilitating access to health checkups, and helping to cover their medical expenses.
In the recent years The program has expanded to cover other needs in the Cambodian families through building and repairing houses, giving micro-credits, promoting micro-savings and providing job opportunities through an income-generating sewing program. In addition, every July each year there is a summer camp organized for vulnerable children from the surrounding areas of Battambang which gathers over five hundred participants together.
