About my fundraiser
If we reach €22,000 we can support and educate 15 young girls for one year. €245 ($335, £200) will help two of them for one month.
ANAKUT LAOR: A BRIGHT FUTURE
Having worked for several years in Cambodia for AIDS programs, Jean Yves and Dominique Dufour noticed that there was no orphanage for young orphan girls affected by AIDS, whose needs are specific due to their illness. They created a home for them, Anakut Laor, which means “A Bright Future”.
The goal of Anakut Laor is to educate, feed and take care of adolescent girls, so that they are well prepared to an adult life. Because by now, if well cured, you can live a long time with AIDS. In practice, we provide them with a family life, help in schooling, and most of all a professional training so that they can earn their living when they become adults. As a result, they develop adult-life skills in order to become autonomous under a medical follow-up and access to antiretroviral treatments.
14 girls are being taken care of in 2014.
Anakut Laor has partnered with well-known NGOs such as MSF (Doctors without Borders, winner of the Nobel Peace Prize in 1999), Maryknoll, a US catholic charity and MDM (Doctors of the World).
