Stellar Child Care Oranisation

        
    

Jenni Wilke introduced guest speaker Nakita Kitson, the founder of the Stellar Children’s Trust. Nakita is a high school English teacher from Augusta.  While volunteering in Cambodia in 2011, Nikita saw the needs of the displaced people. She established the trust to develop sustainable education and employment opportunities in Cambodia.

We support poverty-stricken families in Andong, a displaced community about an hour from Phnom Penh. With little-to-no access to clean water, sanitation, education or medical care, we focus on practical projects that provide long-term, sustainable solutions in education, family support and income generation. 

Over the past ten years the trust has supported poverty-stricken families in Andong, a displaced community about an hour from Phnom Penh. This community has little-to-no access to clean water, sanitation, education or medical care.  The trust focuses on practical projects that provide long-term, sustainable solutions in education, family support and income generation.

The support includes micro loans to enable families establish an income, running a sewing centre that provides employment, computer and English classes for the kids, removing obstacles to education, mentoring teachers, providing a school bus so youngsters can attend school, loan bikes for older children and much more.  One measure of success is raising the literacy from 30% to 90%.

Nakita established the trust as a 23 year old wanting to assist people in Cambodia. She has come a long way and achieved so much and in the past year has learned to adapt her work under COVID-19 conditions staying in touch during lockdown via zoom, a TV channel and Facebook.
