Transform began 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. Some of these children had two parents, some had one and some were orphans. Every family was desperately poor in resources and in hope.
We opened our first life centre in July 2006 with 85 of these beautiful children. Our centres answered a powerful, open-ended question: what do these children need in order to grow into confident, well-educated, world-standard leaders?
That’s an audacious question, but we serve an audacious God. The book of Isaiah 43:18-19 says:
“Do not remember the former things,
Nor consider the things of old.
Behold, I will do a new thing,
Now it shall spring forth;
Shall you not know it?”
There is no rule that says our past prophesises our future.
