We believe that the right people to build a better Cambodia are Cambodians. That’s why all our staff in Cambodia are local. They are incredibly devoted to both our children and to their nation.
Being a street child is simply a recognition of their current circumstances, but not a predication of their future. They only start-out poor.
We establish our Life Centres in the poorest districts of Phnom Penh and enrol 100 street children from the location. Each Centre has seven trained staff who carefully vet each child to ensure that they’re genuinely poor. All our children still live at home (however basic and poor that may be) so we work very closely with their family (some with two parents, sometimes one parent and sometimes grandparents). Then we start to build their future with health care, education, life skills, leadership, fluency in English and creative development.
Our children are the real heroes of this story, they’re amazing!
