Lives of unlimited potential

At Transform, we seek out and rescue the most vulnerable and neglected street children of Phnom Penh. We rescue and protect them from the many injustices caused by poverty. We educate, clothe and feed them. We restore their dignity and hand them keys to a life of unlimited potential.

Hope for the future

We give them hope for their future and the future of their country. We believe that by giving them the gift of self-belief, we can empower these children to one day grow up and become the change their families and communities desperately need.

We started with Cambodia

Transform started in 2006 after our founders witnessed hundreds of highly vulnerable children scavenging the rubbish tip of Phnom Penh. These children had no access to education and little hope for a better life. In partnership with their parents, our first Life Centre was started to provide 60 of these children with health care, nutrition, education and mentors who would stay with them as they grew up. Today, we have grown to almost 3,300 children and 31 Life Centres spread right across the city.

We are not like other charities you have seen before

At Transform, we believe we’re different. We are not a program at arms length. We are deeply committed to real and enduring relationship with our children and their families. What we do now in the present is both powerful and necessary, but we believe the future that lays ahead is even more exciting. We feel like we’re just getting started!
