ADRA Australia Project

ADRA Australia

The CHOICES for Children project focuses on improving health outcomes for 60 rural communities in the Bakan district in western Cambodia. The project supports communities to better address the risks of child malnutrition and improving their wellbeing. Parents and caregivers are trained and educated to make informed decisions about feeding practices, household hygiene and sanitation. The project also empowers food insecure families to have more sustained household livelihoods through extensive training.

ADRA NZ Project

ADRA NZ

Cambodia is one of the poorest countries in Asia. 90% of the country’s most impoverished population live in rural areas and are dependent on growing agriculture as a means of both food and income. Growing competition from imported produce, inability to access markets and lower quality and quantity of produce are making it increasingly hard for families to make enough money to pay for essentials beyond their own subsistence. Children are being taken out of school and families are going without medicines when they are sick. This is further reinforcing the cycle of poverty and families are being left further behind.

This project will support farmers in the Pursat Province through providing agricultural and business training. Farmers will work together in cooperative producer groups to have higher negotiation power and better access to markets while also improving the quantity and quality of produce. Together, these activities will grow the income and economic resilience of farmers, strengthen the rural economy and reduce poverty.


This project is a part of the NZ Government match scheme. So, this means that for every $1 you can raise for this project, ADRA can access another $3 in match funding. The ADRA NZ team can have 4 times the impact on rural subsistence farmers in Cambodia.
The human faces of this project are children and their families who will have the ability to attend school, to afford healthcare, to afford better nutrition, and ultimately to have the chance to thrive.


Studies have shown that just one year of primary school attendance can increase a child’s future earning potential by 15%… imagine what we could do for them if we can help them complete their full schooling?

Watoto Project

Watoto

Watoto is a family made up of people from all over the world who are working together to ensure that the forgotten have a place to belong. As we work alongside the most vulnerable in Uganda, our aim is to rescue individuals and raise each one as a leader in his or her sphere of life so that, in turn, they will rebuild the nation.

Watoto educates over 3000 vulnerable children, including over 100 children who live in surrounding communities, and neighbourhood children who board at our villages during the school term. Watoto started its first education facility in 1995. Today we have four primary schools, three secondary schools and a technical institute. Some of these schools have been in existence for over 20 years and the facilities need to be renovated to continue to offer a safe, clean and healthy environment for students to learn and grow to the full potential.

Bikes4Life Project

Bikes4Life

It is our mission is to collect, restore and provide bicycles to the most marginalised & impoverished communities around the world.

In remote communities a bicycle is not only a means of transport to places of employment and education but can provide many with access to remote sources  of food, water, medicine and shelter.

One bicycle can support social rehabilitation & economic change and it is our mission is to collect, restore and provide bicycles to some of the most marginalised & impoverished communities around the world.

Bikes 4 Life is a network of concerned citizens, organizations and companies, who are dedicated to supporting extremely marginalized and neglected individuals and communities by providing re-cycled bicycles as a mode of sustainable transport. Bikes are a vital instrument for access to independence and livelihood. We are committed to taking meaningful action, by helping to provide tools for survival, empowerment, economic development and social change. Bikes 4 Life are committed to making a difference by acting in a way we believe can benefit society at large. It is our aim to provide bicycles to the needy, raise awareness to the less informed, act as role models to our own youth, strengthen local community values, give hope, empowerment and confidence to marginalized communities, while supplying something as simple as bicycles.

Through research and inquiry, we identify countries, regions and communities that are in most need of bicycles. In these communities a bicycle is not only a means of transport to places of employment and education but can provide many with access to remote sources of food, water, medicine and shelter. One bicycle can support social rehabilitation & economic change.
