This project meets the needs of poor children in the five villages of Beoung Tum Pun’s public schools with two major aspects of the program: tutorial fees for primary and secondary school and a program of overseeing the education of each child by our school assistance manager.

Our early childhood development efforts are concentrated in two of the most deprived neighborhoods at the Pre-K Ta Koung and Tu Taing areas for children ages three to five to prepare them, especially Vietnamese children, to enter the Cambodian school system in grade one.

The third center for children is located in Takhmao as part of a new evangelization program by the Catholic Church. Additionally, basic financial support is provided for a small group of mostly elderly people who have no means of support.

Your gift will make a difference in the life of a child.

The Maryknoll Institute of African Studies courses are all post-graduate. The courses are aimed at the intellectual conversion of students, in that students become conscious of and fluent in owning and expressing their cultural knowledge of origin. If the student is not African, the courses help them in appropriating and expressing an authentic African mindset.

This training enables students, whether priests, brothers, sisters, or lay to become much more professional and proficient in their areas of expertise as educators, pastors, medical practitioners, or developmental agents. Each student is assigned a field assistant – a university graduate – who facilitates professional quality research in the highways and byways of Nairobi. For every hour of class there is a required hour of field research.

The cost of the courses includes the field assistant’s and the lecturer’s stipend. Because there are limited number of post-graduate students, the classes are small. These factors put the cost per course at $800 which can be out of the reach for many students.

As a result, Maryknoll offers 14 half-scholarships at $400 or eight full scholarships at $800 for needy students including lay missioners, Maryknoll Seminarians, Religious, and African priests, Sisters and Brothers.

The Maryknoll Fathers and Brothers Africa Region will provide tuition assistance to African clergy, male and female religious at institutes of higher education or specialized training. The support will not be limited to individuals but also for one seminary of an African missionary order.

The training for the African clergy will usually take place at colleges and universities that are located in Africa. It will be of great benefit to the Church in Africa to assist its future leaders to receive some advanced education or specialized training. It will also enable Africans to further the ministries of the Christian community on the continent.

Your gift promotes a future of mission.

Founded in 1992 by Father Bill Tillson, M.M., who died in mission serving the poor, this program is now continued by Father William McIntire, M.M. This mission teaches poor women how to sew professionally so they can help support their families.

Over the years, more than 200 poor women have improved their economic situation. In addition, women receive an academic education since many never went to school.

Your gift will enable Father McIntire to replace the old sewing machines and will insure a better future for women at risk.

Educating the deaf in Cambodia continues to make a difference to more than 51,000 deaf people and 500,000 who are hard-of-hearing.

Maryknoll Fathers and Brothers strive to provide more and better services to the deaf population by collaborating and partnering with other organizations to extend our reach. One of these partners is Epic Arts, a UK-based organization that promotes performing arts and skills training for people with or without disabilities.

You can help Father Charles Dittmeier, M.M., provide hostels to house and feed students and provide education, job training, interpreting, sign language, deaf community development and social services.
