ABC Educational Materials Drive

For children attending our Believe in Me schools in Cambodia, learning English is an essential piece of their education. English proficiency is a power tool in gaining access to higher education and future sustainable employment, thereby helping to break the cycle of poverty. One way to gain fluency in another language is by hearing it spoken frequently. […]

Reggie

It didn’t take long for little Reggie to capture our hearts. In  March, Reggie came into LWB care when he needed help with his ankle and leg. He had an accident and suffered a broken ankle, but his family was unable to afford the medical care he needed, and he never healed properly.

Looking Sharp in School Uniforms

In Cambodia, school uniforms are very important. They impart a sense of pride in one’s school as well as a sense of belonging. The students at our Believe in Me schools in Cambodia recently received their new school uniforms, and we love the proud looks on their faces as they model them for us!

Safe Haven Foster Care in Cambodia

LWB has provided family care to thousands of orphaned children since we first launched our foster care program in China over a decade ago. When we decided to begin working with orphaned and vulnerable children in Cambodia, we knew that foster care would once again be an essential part of our work. What we didn’t know at the time was that we would be called upon to help some of the most vulnerable children in that country:  those who had been victims of child trafficking and severe abuse.

As this week’s blog series by LWB Board member Bob Spires explained, Cambodia remains a prime source country for the trafficking of children. Many are taken across the border and live through things no child should ever experience. Read more

Human Trafficking: Part Three

This is the third and final blog in our series about human trafficking. As LWB has expanded to Cambodia, we have learned that it is impossible to work there without an understanding of trafficking and how it affects vulnerable children in this region. We are so grateful to our newest board member, Dr. Robert Spires, for sharing his expertise with us.

When I first began to explore the topic of human trafficking, I was overwhelmed. I had a bit of an existential crisis finding out that not only had slavery continued past the 1800s, but it was alive and well. I may have even witnessed it without knowing what I was seeing.

Human Trafficking: Part Two

As you know, Love Without Boundaries has recently begun working to help vulnerable children in rural Cambodia. Human trafficking, abuse, and child exploitation are issues of grave concern in this area of the world, and so we want to share some thoughts on this issue from our new board member, Dr. Robert Spires.

In Southeast Asia, it is important to clarify who the traffickers really are in this region. That really depends on location and varies greatly. For instance, in Thailand, we see everyone from the Thai and Russian mafia to opportunistic and unscrupulous individuals involved in trafficking. Read more.

Human Trafficking: Part One

Human trafficking, as you might imagine, is a complex topic that crosses many areas of study, including development, economics, politics, sociology, anthropology, criminology and a host of others. For this reason, it is difficult to really call human trafficking a single ‘field of study’. Read more.

Life in Sokhem Village

Ninety percent of Cambodians living in extreme poverty live in the rural countryside. Some of the poorest villages are located along the border of Thailand, which is where LWB is now working. Children in this region often live in remote villages, with little access to basic social services such as health care or a nearby school.

Last October, we made a commitment to the children of Sokhem Village, many whom are left behind all day while their parents travel to Thailand in search of work. Read more.

Happiness is…hot lunches and full tummies!
