New Child Intake (NCI)
A newly registered child, followed by the supply plan of Child Sponsorship for each field country, to connect with a sponsor. It is generally recognized by many sponsors that their sponsored child is not just someone whom they support, but a member of their family like their own child or sibling. The New Child Introduction Card is the first step that sponsors and their sponsored child meet each other. Many sponsors cherish the New Child Information Card and compare the level of growth and development from that New Child Information Card when they get the Annual Report of child. In addition, sponsors grow attached to their sponsored children and get to have confidence in the organization through the New Child Introduction Card.
ANNUAL CHILD LETTER (ACL)
ANNUAL PROGESS REPORT (APR)
Annual Progress Report (APR)
Is the report to inform sponsors about changes, growth, and development of their sponsored children periodically (Once a year)? Through the report, sponsors eager to know if there are changes in live of the child from their support such as whether the children are growing healthy, live with dream and work hard for their future. Precise and timely reports are essential since positive result improve credibility and loyalty toward the organization and encourage consistent support from sponsors. The sponsored children can be the agent of transformation in which they are able to report to the sponsor about their progress having been happened in the community or their family or themselves.
GIFT LETTER AND MONEY (GML)
Gift Money & Gift Letter (GML)
The Gift Money and Letter is a personal gift or letter from the sponsors to the registered child/children (RC), their families and community and/or project. It should be contributed to RC and family upon the specific needs within the projects implementation. The support is made by cash and delivered in the form of materials based on sponsor’s interest or the child’s need/want. Through the gift money and letters, sponsors can fulfill their wants for direct supports and reinforce a sense of closeness and bonds between the sponsor-sponsored children.
HOME VISIT & CHILD DROP
Child Drop-out is when he/she is not accessible for the sponsorship due to the reasons; he/she will be dropped out from the project site and accordingly reported to Head Office.
Home Visit is valuable in building respectful relationships with children and parents and in developing a broad understanding of every child in the program. The visits enhance child’s knowledge and understanding of the developmental progress of their child. A minimum of four home visits will be conducted in the family’s home of every sponsored child (SC).
Our child sponsorship programs are:
Aiming to assure the sustained well-being of the vulnerable children physical, emotional/mental, and social development.
To support community people in the target projects to overcome the root cause against the improvement of their living condition
and empower them to see every challenges as an opportunity.
Child Well Being Indicators
We measure child well-being in our sponsorship communities by monitoring these four indicators and outcomes. Our goal is that all children should:
1. Basic Health Service Accessibility
Children and families are well oriented on the basic health service and practice. For children, the aiming is to reduce the high percentage of malnutrition and being underweight.
2. Educational Enrollment
Parents/guardians of the children acknowledge and value the potential of sending their children to school within the school age determined by the concern ministry. Through education, children can shape their dream, plan for their future and equip themselves with the quality characteristic to obtain a standardize profession.
3. Safety Assurance
Children are being care and protected through Community Child Protection System (CCPS) to make sure the four basic child rights wholly taken by children, their parents and community people. Children are safe guaranteed and flourished inside and outside their living zone.
4. Community Transformation
GNC empowers children, families, and community people to access to necessary knowledge and resources and to improve quality of living and children’s well-being.

- Good School WASH Project
For smooth Good School WASH implementation and long term sustainability of outcomes, project have cooperates with four main groups of stakeholders:
The insufficient WASH (Water, Sanitation & Hygiene) facilities and security needs of school children and lead to a high risk of infections. This can affect children’s health and their ability to attend school, which can have a negative impact on their academic performance. Poor water quality as well as insufficient sanitation and hygiene practices are common issues in schools. In Cambodia, total schools across the country is 12,889, 85.9% of primary schools have latrines and 47.2% have hand washing facilities, 90% of target schools in the target areas are not WASH facility adequately and properly, 90% of children in target areas do not understand the six steps of hand washing and 34% of children and adults wash their hands properly at school (MoEYS 2016-2017)
Existing sanitation facilities and water supply is often in very poor condition or not functioning particularly in rural school.
In order to address these serious problems, Good Neighbors Cambodia has developed Good School WASH project to improve the Health, Hygiene & Sanitation situation in targeted of GNC. Direct beneficiaries approximately 7,290 students and children among 4 provinces and 1 urban to access Water, sanitation & hygiene at school and community in order to reach objective, Good School WASH project link with community development programs especially health & WASH sectors and following by school health department guideline. This project have three years period focus on social and technical aspects, we have plan to improve WASH infrastructures 45 schools, 45schools gardening and 45 schools plant trees also to build capacity school director, SSC and youth group leaders be able lead and facilitate the project good function.
Each school should work to develop adequate knowledge, attitudes and skills on hygiene through hygiene education and child participation. Improving hygiene behavior must go along with toilet construction and the provision of safe water and washing facilities in schools. Awareness on hygiene education, it’s a principle that new knowledge does not, by definition, translate into new practices. Therefore, WASH education seeks to instil hygiene practices into the realities of children’s daily lives, helping them acquire the knowledge of appropriate hygiene behaviors and the skills to use them and transform knowledge into practice.
