Cambodian economy is progressing thanks to implementation of big companies in the country and stopping depending exclusively on agriculture. The lack of formation of the population, particularly in the rural areas, is indispensable that the young people prepare themselves for the new challenges ahead.

A volunteer from Andorra, a technician in electricity and industrial painting has organized classes of theory and painting practice and of electricity where attended young and adults from the community in 6 work groups, having realised 36 hours of formation each and with a final evaluation.

Another project directed to children and students of high school from the community that are not working or study, is to introduce the, into IT, earning Word , Excel and Power Point in two modules of 3 months.

The Lycée of Chop Veary welcomes in 1446 students who come from the communes of Rohal, Salacches, Poysway, Phnom Chuchiang, Popel, Tepkosa and Chop Veary. There are 5 buildings, one of them made of wood in a very bad condition and in danger of collapsing, forcing to distribute all the students between the other 4 buildings.

We have demolished the wood building and have built a building of 5 classrooms with concrete walls and tile roof and a camera of isolation to avoid the heat. In addition, we have built a small building for two WC.

The objective of this project is to prevent child abuse by forming and sensibiliser families, schools and communities about the children’s right. The project is implemented in two main areas:

- To work with children and teenagers for them learn about the children’s right and their duties for them to grow physically and mentally healthy.
- To work with the nearby organizations and institutions to increase the awareness of the children’s rights, to understand them and change attitudes to value childhood and protect them of the abuse.

The project is developed in the human slumses of María Jesús Espinoza and Jose Olaya of the district of Ventana, Constitutional Province of Pebble, located in the of Lima.

The Uralita roofs of the buildings of the centre were deteriorating due to continuous and violent rain and dry seasons. Water liked into the buildings building up the humidity in the walls. Uralita raises the temperature inside the building and can reach 40 degrees Celsius. Infants del Món started a plan to change the roofs in different estates but report of the dangers of living with Uralita roof were showed to us, we had to the change urgently to ensure the good health of the children and personnel of la Llar.

In order to develop to personal aptitudes, the Chameleon Association has organized classes of professional training for young people pertaining to the programs and neighbours of the community so that they can obtain a remunerated job or to even open a small business that helps them to have a worthy life.

In the project, 233 young people and adults have participated. The project offers the following training: cooking, preservation of foods, waitress and arts, seamstress, beauty therapy, electronic, domestic repairs, mechanics and electricity.

Thuy Yen is in an extremely hot valley between Phu Gia and Ohuoc Tuong. The majority of the inhabitants works the in the land that does not give them enough to survive, causing that many of their children are born with physical and psychic disabilities, and in consequence, with serious health problems.

The sisters of the Daughters of María Inmaculada Community built a centre for the specialized schooling of these children, where they also educate the parents on the varied feeding, exercises of mobility and the traditional medicine to help them to improve the health of their children.

Cambodia is undergoing to great changes but still has a long run compared with its neighvoring countries, mostly in education and health care.

The zone in that we builded the Llar is rural and oneof the poorest of the country, for that reason there is no better way to give an impulse to the project than to build nuersry for an early education.

Although Peru is a country with a great biodiversity, it undergoes to a great undernourishment by the lack of education of its population. Kusi Warma has executed the project with the collaboration of the Ministry of Health of the Government of Peru. The communitarian agents, the communal chiefs and local authorities, have identified the cases of nutritious risk, health and physical development, mainly between the children from 0 to 3 year old; mothers and pregnant woman, and they are working all together to prevent chronic undernourishment.

The System of Communitarian Monitoring (SVC) in 22 communities has been implemented an executing the census, the calendar of control of weight and measurement and graphics of the nutritious state of this project.

Although there are still precarious schools in the province, we are working for the children of the community to have suitable places to study. Our association will continue fighting to ensure that all the children can be sent to school and to receive a good education, in a suitable school.

We have built a building of 5 classrooms, each with desks, offices for the teachers and a closet to keep the school material. And toilets for the children.

We have built a building of 4 classrooms with desks and chairs for the students, an office for the teachers, closet to keep school material and a library.

The natural disasters: typhoons, storms, floods and later droughts have caused the harvests of that year was very bad, and the poor families didn’t have anything to eat. Our objective was to stop that the critical moment of hunger that the population was suffering.

We have distributed sacks of rice between the families of the Commune of Rohal in Cambodia, to Loui and Phu Bang of Vietnam, to be able to distribute it in a fair manner. The aid has arrived to 8400 people.

The typhoons are frequent in the Philippines between the months of June to November, and bring floods and sliding of the land, that takes everything what is finding ahead. More than a half million of people died that June because of the Fengshen Typhoon, in the region of the Southeast of the archipelago.

From the platform of ONG's of Andorra, we have collected money for the reconstruction of houses for the victims of the typhoon.

In the district of Preah Net Preah there were only two schools of secondary education, Rohal and Choupvery, in which they attended all the students of secondary from the entire district. The stability that lives the country, in the last years, causes that the families want their children to study and the number of students is increasing, the classrooms were insufficient, although the courses are divided by shifts.

The authorities of Rohal provided a land in which we have built a building of 5 classrooms, 1 office for the director, 2 WC, patio and field of volleyball.

The school, made of wood with ceiling of palm leaves, was built for more than 25 years and without maintenance and it was in a lamentable state. At the raining season the land was flooded and the children couldn’t assist to class.

With the concrete building of 6 classrooms and a WC, that we have built, the students will be able to attend class without depending on the daily weather.

The school that the Concern NGO had built wasn’t enough for the students of Popel.

We had built a building with 5 classes giving a better access for schooling to all the students of the village.

On the15th of August an earthquake of 7,9 in the scale of Richter affected the provinces of south of Lima, causing the dead of 540 people, 10.000 injured and 80% of the houses destroyed, damaging 35,000 families, the situation was dramatic.

On the 22nd of August, Infants of Mon-Andorra sent to Peru 10,000 Euros so that Kusi Warma could react in the first hours. This money could help 1,200 families with children so that they could buy food (rice, sugar, milk, eggs, vermicelli, tins, cakes, butter, and tomato sauce) and drinkable water. Also blankets, diapers, clothes for children and adults, coal kitchens, medicines, towels and toys. The aid arrived at villages where the Government couldn’t reach.

The desperation that causes in the adults to live destruction and death, in the children can traumatise them for life. With the donations that particular and institutions contributed to the campaign organized by the Platform of ONG's of Andorra, in which was collected more than 75.000€, started up the project “Operation smile” with two main objectives: to offer to the children of the district of Sunampe some spaces to surpass the drama and to give support to the families who present the most urgent needs.

The hospital of the Commune of Rohal, is located in Choup Veary and gives to 16,000 people primary attendance. The hospital had 3 buildings made of wood, two with a capacity for 30 beds and one for the tuberculosis patients. The necessity of an exclusive pavilion for children and mothers in labour was urgent because the hospital was full and the children had to be transferred, by their families, to be treated in other sites.

We have built a paediatric pavilion with tiled walls that would contribute for a better hygiene, with fans; the windows with glass, would prevent the entrance of mosquitos and the doors of iron would prevent that animal such as rats, dogs, etc. enter the building freely.

Thanks to the contribution of an Andorran citizen we have been able to build a water deposit and the installation of solar panels

In 2004 we welcomed the first child in the orphanage who we have built, in several stages because it was a great investment, at the Commune of Rohal of Cambodia. The purpose is to give to the children the opportunity to grow in stable surroundings, educating them and giving the necessary values so they are, in the future, adults integrated in the society of the country. The children who we welcome in the orphanage have lived very traumatic familiar situations, the centre does not only has covers the basic needs and education, but they receive, from the personnel that works, the security and tenderness that is needed so they feel like part of a great family. The personnel of the centre is Khmer and it’s managed by a delegated Advisor of Infants of Mon-Andorra, with the support of an international cooperate.

The Llar is in a rural community, the families live on the collection of rice and cassava that does not contribute enough to cover the basic needs. In the schools of rural areas the level is very low because of the overpopulation of the classrooms and the demotivated teachers. Since our goal is to work for the benefit of the children and their families, we initiated the support classes (in which the professors teach Khmer, mathematics, English, physical, computer science, and chemistry) and extra-curricular activities that we have organized to reinforce the level of the students. ABA gives specific annual support for the classes.

Danang is a very important university city in Vietnam. The students of the ethnic minorities wish to follow their superior formation but the economic problems of the families makes that impossible, since they cannot assume the lodging and expenses in the city.
We have repaired a part of a maternal school and built a boarding school for 20 students.

The “La casa Do Beja Flower” is a centre that welcomes children who live in the street and suffered physical and psychological abused and has a capacity for 20 orphans. But the needs of the country cause that the Court of Minors sends them more and more children, which makes the facilities to be insufficient.

We have reformed the kitchen and the dining room, built essential spaces such us the laundry room, the warehouse and the pantry, bought new furniture and renewed the hydraulic and electrical system of the house.

75% of the population of Phu Xuan belong to the ethnic minorities and many communities do not have schools, which excludes the children of the national education system.

With the support of the ABA (Association of Banks of Andorra) we have built a maternal school of 2 classrooms, so that the smallest children can begin their education.

For a child to develop physically and psychically, needs a well-balanced diet. If they do not receive it from childhood the necessary nutrients the children are in danger to have diseases, because their immune system is weak and cannot fight back making the school performance is low. In rural areas mothers, that is the one who take care, must feed their children with tortillas because they do not have access to other ingredients.

Many Peruvian that lives in rural areas emigrate to the capital, thinking that they will find a job and to give a better life to their family, but the reality is very different and they finish living in the suburbs, living in cabins of Uralita of a single room without running water nor light and future.

The project is based in the human settlements of Chimbote and Andahuaylas and the main objective is to develop capacities in the families who allow them to prevent the undernourishment with their children, being a priority nursing mother, minors of 3 years old and pregnant women. The children with serious undernourishment will enter in an equipment recovery centre where they receive integral attention and they recover of the undernourishment.
Simultaneously an intensive work of capacity and direction to the families is realised, to avoid that they return to fall when they return to their home.

The Lataste Orphanage is managed by a Khmer organization ADTJK, projected that welcomes at the most 50 children, but by the circumstances of the country they were forced to shelter more children and had to build new spaces such as dormitories for the children.

In order to palliate this problem we have built a dormitory and a study/game room. And important space for the children to surpass the traumas of having lost the parents and helping them to have a balanced life.

The social association visually impaired of Phu Loc, with more than 300 users, did not have a centre adapted to their needs.

We have bought a house where 18 people will be able to reside and will be a centre of formation for the visually impaired, with factories adapted to develop their abilities, that will help them to make some money and help them to feel part of society.

Soy Thuy is a population in the heat of economic development that it attracts many young couples with small children. The necessity of a safe place where to leave them it was fundamental so that both parents that are far from their families can go to work.

In the day-care centre are registered 280 children.

Quang Tien is a zone of fertile land where is planted sugarcane, maize and tobacco is one of the denominated zones of the new economy. The maternal school had some old facilities that were not safe for the students.

We have bought a building and we have renewed it totally to be able to school 100 students

We aim to provide access to the education for children from families with low income, in the rural areas of Vietnam. Our promise is to invest in their present because they are the key of the future.

The orphanage of Sighetu Marmatei, welcomes babies to 3 year old children. The facilities are in quite good state, despite of the forgetfulness of their Government and thanks to the director who is a very efficient person and who tries very hard to find the support necessary to keep the centre in good condition. But the boilers room was in a very bad state and the machines often broke down. The reconstruction of the roof has helped to keep the boilers in good condition and at present they have hot water and heating during the cold winters of that country.

The hygiene is basic in a centre where are small children, the wash of the clothes were made by hand and in those centres it is a very hard work, by the climate, lots of snow and low temperatures the drying of the clothes was complicated.

We have bought an industrial washing machine that will help the hygiene and will facilitate the task of the nursemaids.

The ethnic minorities speak their mother tongue, so most of the children don’t speak Vietnamese. It is important for them to learn the national language from early age so they can carry on their studies in the national school.

In Bac Son lives an ethnic minority called Pako, one of oldest of the country. With the construction of the maternal school we have reduced the problem of the mothers, whom they had to always to take the children with them when going to work in the crops.

In Vietnam the leprosy is a disease, unfortunately, too much extended? It has many centres where children are welcome with their parents. But without the needed structures for the children to develop skills and get an academic education, these children wouldn’t have any changes in the future.

With the educative project, the children can attend to class daily. And since the play is a way for the children to feel related and to grow up, we had built a game room for those qualities to be developed.

Pleiback and Pleigauden is a difficult region and the climatic conditions are very adverse for the farmers of the Jarai (ethnic group).

We have funded the installation and electrical connection in the 52 houses, giving them the possibility of creating typical ethnic handicrafts that they will be able to sell in the markets and to stop depending exclusively on the land.

A person infected of leprosy is transferred with their families to the centre in order to get treatment. The children must walk 15km daily to go to the school, since nobody wants them to lodge although they are not infected, still is important that they have access to the educative system.

The construction of the school, under the responsibility of a priest who will teach, will help them to continue schooling with normality.

This project we have implemented is thanks to the ABA contribution (association of Banks of Andorra)

This clinic gives medical cover to a great number of families of the region. The doctor who visits is Sister Consolata. A typhoon destroyed almost everything and was essential and urgent its reconstruction.

We have rebuilt bigger to be more comfortable for the treatments and the care of patients.

During primary school education, the students don’t learn only the normal subjects but they develop a series of habits and values that will help them to gather skills to apply in their everyday lifes. And since, most probably, most of these children will get only primary education, it is important to promote it.

From the Association, we have the objective to approach as many children as possible for them to go to school and try to avoid child labour.

Conscious of the problems in which the small communities live, the Vietnamese Government has announced that will make arrive aid to the poorest communities and a gradual improvement from infrastructures to reduce their isolation, but the reality is very discouraging and it is necessary that the children starts to school from early age.

The majority of the children of the minority ethnic groups finish the secondary and stop studying, but there are good students, stimulated by professors and the godparents, they would love to continue the studies. For that reason they must move to the cities to continue the studies and to go to the University. For these families, it is impossible to pay the rent of a room, in addition these students are used to live in small villages and the radical change to live in a city is a too great change.

We have bought and adapted a building so that the youths can live while they are studying in the university.

The school of Huong Phong was in a zone that flooded every year during raining season, and forced to close the school during many months, and the students were not able to finish the school curriculum of the year.

We have transferred the school in to a land that facilitated the Popular Committee to our Association.

In 20 years, the poverty index has changed from 60% to 11% of the population, according to the propaganda of the Vietnamese Government, but the inequality between rich and poor increases and the benefits of the growth do not arrive to the poor. For that reason it is important that they have access to free health care and doctors in the hospitals. We have built a clinic with the approval of the Popular Committee, and had recruited a doctor and a nurse to take care of the patients.

The Government of Hanoi tries to integrate the minority ethnic groups, isolated generally, who in many cases have been living in the same condition than a century ago. A report reveals that more than a million of children between 5 and 17 years, mainly pertaining to these groups, they have never been schooled. The construction of schools avoids the cultural and social exclusion by the difference in the language. This project has been subsidized by the Honourable Common of Ordino (Andorra)

Besides the difficulties due to their isolation, the ethnics minorities work in crops, since the land is not rich, they don’t have enough to get by. So for the children surpass the cultural stereotypes need to have a good educative level since early age. By building a kindergarten, we forced the government to send teachers to fulfil the academic needs of the youngest.

Where the families live, the children do not have the suitable conditions to be able to study and the libraries are the place where the children can do their homework helped by the personnel. In order to promote the reading, the libraries needs to have attractive books for these children and suitable for all ages.

The education is free, but the families must cover the cost of the obligatory school uniform which is already a great load and needs help to pay for the school material too, which we provide
scolar.

In Ango Tao Oi Pako lives an ethnic minority. In centre of the village there were 2 huts that were used as classrooms; we have constructed 2 buildings to replace them.

The Co Tu, is an ethnic group very proud of their traditional culture. With the daily activities, this group inculcate to the young people and children, its traditions so that they understand their origins.

In the primary school of 2 classrooms that we had built, the students will be able besides studying, rehearse their dances.

The ethnic minority Bru, was nomadic until they decided to settle near the river, choosing meticulously the place. Traditionally, several generations live in the same house that the family extends every time a baby is born and this custom causes a higher birth rate.
We have constructed a primary school with two classrooms.

The isolated populations in which the minorities live, continue to suffer poverty and the only way out of poverty is the migration to the cities, an already painful step because they must leave the place where they were born and where their family lives, which is complicated for people without any educational level or the necessary contacts to get a job.

For this reason, it is essential that they begin to prepare in the maternal school. At Huong Huu we have built a school with 2 classrooms.

The economic miracle that lives Vietnam, didn’t have any impact for the less favoured ethnic minorities, they mainly continue living in the misery and completely isolated of the unstoppable development of the country. 50% of its inhabitants live in poverty and the programs of economic attendance do not arrive to them. We have built a school with two classes so that youngest can attend to school.

Traditionally they are the women who take care of the children and the elderly of the family, and in addition carry out the tasks of the house and small crops. To have a kindergarten in the town facilitates their life and prepares the youngest for the beginning of the school.

We have constructed a kindergarten with 2 classrooms with 2 tables and 40 chairs. The Vietnamese Government has transferred 2 teachers for them to take care of the small ones.

Besides looking for subsidy to implement projects, our objective is also to increase awareness to the Andorran population. We organized a campaign for a collection of notebooks and pencils for the poor of Hué, which distributed among the children that assists at school.

Vietnam has 54 minority ethnic groups who live according to their ancestral customs. Van Kieu lives in the mountainous zone on the central province of Quang Tri, and gets their living out of the plots cultivating in an ancestral way and so their subsistence is very hard.

Our first project was the construction of a school of 3 classrooms, furnished with tables and chairs, school material and games for the children of Lâng Cat since the old school was constructed with canes that the years had rotted and was dangerous for the students.

Projects implemented

Every year we worked in a project that seeks for the greater possible impact in the improvement of the life of the children, their families and the community, creating infrastructures or in benefit of the health.

In order to realise them, we counted with the help of the Andorran Government by giving us grants, the support of public and private entities, of donors, partners and the godparents of the association
