This wonderful program started as the Sunday Feeding Program during 2008 in Chumkiri, Kampot Province (one of the poorest in Cambodia). It expanded to also serve children from the village of Or (PhumOr). Every Sunday, the children were served one very nutritious meal of 'bobo', a rice porridge packed with eggs, chicken meat and veggies. It might not seem much but that one meal a week has proved to improve the health of these children. It is also a nice way to gather them together and check on their health and family issues, as well as, an opportunity for the youth to serve their community.

What are the benefits of this program?

- to build community life;

- to give basic moral and hygiene principles;

- to build teamwork and social skills;

​- to improve the health of the children;

- to involve the youth group.

As AKUN's focus for this program moves from simply feeding the children to their overall wellbeing, we have renamed the program, the Sunday Children's Program. AKUN will be donating the cost of the ingredients for the bobo and will also donate towards the cost of the activities which will focus on education, healthy living, respect, teamwork and social skills. 


What happens each Sunday?

- Early in the morning, children come on their bikes if they have one or on the 'rowie' (a trailer pulled by a motorbike);

- at about 8am, the children are  welcomed and gather in groups organized by the youth group;

​- they play games, sing and dance;

- they wash and dry their hands;

- they sit in lines and wait for the 'bobo' to be served by the youth group;

- they sing;

- they eat;

- they clean their dish and spoon

- they tidy up any litter

- time to go home.

2020 SFP expansion

In 2019, the villagers in Tropeang Skun were building an educational building/library and Fr. Gianluca asked AKUN to set up a Sunday Feeding Program there once it was completed. AKUN agreed to fund this program during 2020, at a cost of $30 for each Sunday, as well as the purchasing of all the start up equipment needed.

Tropeang Skun SFP 2020 was affected by Cambodia's Covid19 restrictions as, for over half the year, the program was unable to meet. To assess the need for the program in the village, the AKUN Board decided to continue funding this village through 2021. Following good attendance by children in the local area, this program continues to be funded by AKUN.


How much does it cost?

From 2024, AKUN is funding the ingredients for the nutritious 'bobo' (rice porridge) mixed with eggs, chicken meat and vegetables. 

The cost for all 3 villages for the ingredients is approx.

$70 per week.
