World Wide Children Farms

What is Samrong Chilrden's farm?Meisje-op-belt

A children farm such as Samrong is home to children ‘from the street' and the garbage dumps. They sleep, play and learn on the farm. The children take care of animals and cattle, feed them and assist in the vegetable garden and the farm's orchard. They learn (and make) music en dancing, go to an ordinary school during the day and basically do everything what children do. For these children, Samrong Children's Farm is their ‘home' in all respects.

How Does it look?

tuinThis 2.5 ha farm is located just outside the city of Phnom Penh and consists of a sleephouse (capacity 80 children) with library and computerroom, a simple guesthouse, a multifunctional shed of 400 m2 with an adjacent canteen and kitchen. On top of that there is a large biological vegetable garden, a fishpond, stables for the cows (15) and chicken and many other animals such as ducks, geese etc. The care for and feeding of these animals is an integral part of the learning and education process on the farm (in addition to the children's regular school education). For the most part the electricity originates from solarpanels but recentely we installed a back up connection to the grid. And for emergency, we also have a small diesel generator.The produce from the vegetable garden and the greenhouse is being used in the kitchen and the surplus is being sold on the local market. This applies also to the fish from the fishpond and the cattle. The orphanage is trying to become independent from donations and charity but this takes time and effort. In-between the buildings there is room for play and sports and some simple facilities were set up. The children use bikes to go to primary school in a nearby village and the older children go to secondary school and university in Phnom Penh. Outside the farm we were permitted to freely use a piece of land for planting rice and in the meantime this rice is harvested and Samrong has become yet a bit more independent!


Who's in charge?

DSCN3333The orphanage is under daily management of the Cambodian pediatrician Dr Sam Sok Vyrak who is being supported by a team of staffmembers in the various keypositions such as the garden, the kitchen, the stables etc. In addition we use volunteers for e.g. English lessons, music or other creative things. They are a valuable and indispensable addition to our permanent staff.
