Partners In Cambodia
The Centre for Children's Happiness (CCH) was started in October 2002. It provides a home and education to 140 children. The children are either orphans or belong to parents who cannot take care of them due to illness or disability. Most of the children previously worked as garbage pickers at the Steung Mean Chey landfill in Phnom Penh, Cambodia
Australians for Cambodian Education (ACE) is a non-profit, non-government, voluntary organisation whose vision is to ‘support the right of a child to learn and play’. It was established in March 2004 by a group of volunteers from The Happy School and a collective of other concerned parties in Australia. ACE aims to raise resources for, and awareness about, The Happy School Project.
Cambodian Children's Fund was founded by Hollywood film executive Scott Neeson, who travelled to Cambodia on holiday in early 2003 and found his life changed by the desperate circumstances and unlikely courage of Phnom Penh's most impoverished children.
CCF was originally developed as one shelter providing a safe haven for 45 children in critical need. Within four short years, the CCF has grown to incorporate five separate facilities, where nearly 400 children receive nutrition and housing, as well as medical treatment, dental services and vaccinations.
Riverkids Project is a charitable trust in Singapore that funds and manages Riverkids Foundation, a Cambodian non-governmental organisation registered in 2007. They work to prevent child trafficking by working directly with families at high risk for trafficking for reasons of addiction, divorce, abuse and extreme poverty. All the children in our project are at high-risk for being trafficked.
The Cambodian Kids Foundation is a not for profit organisation and a registered Cambodian NGO. The foundation aims to educate and empower the people of Cambodia through a number of projects that ensure maximum sustainability and success.
In particular the CKF looks to the future and the creation of a better Cambodia for its people. They believe that in order to change the future for the better, first must come the nurturing and empowerment of the youngest generation, the next leaders of Cambodia. They help the people from a grass roots level, ensuring all of their projects are sustainable and headed by the Khmer people with the CKF working closely beside them.
