Cambodian Children's Fund believes that with quality education and leadership, one child has the potential to lift an entire family out of poverty and a generation of educated children has the power to change a society.

By investing in the health, education and well-being of impoverished children and youth, we are building the skills, confidence and integrity they need to become leaders of positive change in their communities.

We take a holistic, on-the-ground approach to developing integrated yet simple solutions to the complex issues of poverty. We work hand-in-hand with local families to deliver support programs, strengthen self-governance and grow safe, supportive communities where children can thrive.
