Codilis & Associates is an Illinois-based law firm with experience in real estate law and creditor rights. In addition to representing clients who work within the business sector, Codilis and Associates supports a wide array of charitable initiatives, including the efforts of the nonprofit Cambodia’s Hope.

Founded more than a decade ago, Cambodia’s Hope is an organization that supports the operations of several orphanages in the Asian country. The primary orphanage that the organization supports is the Palm Tree Orphanage, which has grown from providing for 16 children in 2002 to 86 children today with the help of Cambodia’s Hope.

The work of Cambodia’s Hope allows the Palm Tree Orphanage to provide its young residents with nutrition, education, art, and recreation. These children are able to attend a half day of standard Cambodian school along with a half day of education provided especially by the orphanage, where the students learn subjects including English, chemistry, accounting, and computers. Additionally, most students attend a music or dance program and participate in public performances to showcase learned skills.

According to findings reported by UNICEF, around one billion children live in poverty around the world, but programs such as Cambodia’s Hope that provide them with access to a home and education go a long way toward reducing the effect that poverty can have on their lives. Research shows that access to education can be the crucial catalyst that motivates communities within developing countries to improve levels of food security, health care, and gender equality for their citizens.
