You can help changes the life of a Cambodian child living in poverty.

Please consider giving.


If you would like to make a donation to a specific project we will send 100% of your donation to the project of your choice.

We are very conscious that every penny spent should  help a child in need. Donors can be assured that our administration fees are kept to an absolute minimum, thereby maximizing the funds available for DSO projects.


$10 – Every donation counts and in Cambodia your UK pound, Euro or Dollar goes a long way! When you make it a monthly donation it becomes $120/year!

$20 – Your donation will provide a child with a school uniform and school supplies for the school term.

$30 – Cover the $1 a day cost of food for a vulnerable family. When you make it a monthly donation, it sustains that family year round!

$40 – Your donation provides a child with fresh food and clean water from a local market for the month.

$50 – Buys a bicycle for a vulnerable child living outside the community to give them transportation to school.

$100 – Staff Sponsor.  We are so fortunate to have a team of dedicated staff – your donation pays a monthly salary!

$150 – A one off donation helps DSO provide a safe nurturing home for our most vulnerable children. By making this a monthly donation you can sponsor a child and receive regular updates on their progress – for more information click here (link to child sponsorship page)


$500 – Can build a classroom in the community where children can learn close to their homes. We are always expanding and hope to continue building better facilities for our students.


At DSO we offer a Child Sponsorship Program for young Cambodian children who were previously at risk of violence, abandonment and trafficking.

100% of your monthly sponsorship fully supports a child.

Your contribution of $150 a month will provide:

  • Access to education
  • A safe home and family support
  • A balanced diet and fresh water
  • Counselling and medical care

Sponsors are matched with a child in need and will receive photos of their sponsored children as well as regular updated on their progress.


You can give a one-off payment to sponsor a child for their whole childhood.

This will pay for sponsorship for a child until they are grown up and independent. Additionally, every birthday $10 will go into a savings account for your child when they turn 18.

There is flexibility in the amount and duration where required. We will arrange for you to receive all the usual sponsorship communications with your child including a photograph and regular updates.

If this is something you’re interested in, we’d love to hear from you. Give us a call on (+855)10402226 or email us (vannak@dsocambodia.org ) and one of the team will be happy to help.

Note about childhood sponsorship: Occasionally children do leave our sponsorship programs for a variety of reasons. Should the child reach independence or leave our sponsorship programme before the sponsorship has finished, we will use the remaining funds for other projects, and you will get sponsorship information of these projects.
