Cambodian Children's Fund transforms the country's most impoverished kids into tomorrow's leaders, by delivering education, family support and community development programs into the heart of Cambodia's most impoverished communities. We believe that with the right education and support, one child has the potential to lift an entire family out of poverty and that a generation of educated children has the power to change a whole society. Through intensive, long-term investments in children, CCF is helping students build the skills, confidence and integrity they need to become the progressive spokespeople and leaders of change in their community.

READ THE RESULTS OF INSTITUTIONAL CARE: Recent survey data from Lumos (headed by J. K. Rowlings) showed the following outcomes for children who grew up in institutions:

1 in 3 became homeless
1 in 5 had a criminal record
1 in 10 committed suicide
1 in 7 became involved in prostitution

In 2014 this group took in over $30,000 per day. They have taken over 700 children from their families to be raised in institutional care. Their support for the families is very small, mostly consisting of a small amount of rice. Support organizations, that help families stay together, not organizations that take children from their families.

My association with CCF began in July 2013 when I was introduced to the extraordinary achievements of Scott Neeson and his team. I am now very pleased to be the Head of Teaching and Learning at CCF with an exciting role to provide the highest quality educational programs for the children of Steung Meanchey. As Nelson Mandela once said - Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world. It is happening here at CCF!

I have just finished training the CCF's new Child Protection Unit with a colleague. This ambitious project is producing Cambodia's first focused child abuse investigation team incorporating selected CCF staff and cambodian police officers with the aim of investigating offences, prosecuting the offenders, and safeguarding the children. The enthusiasm and drive of Scott and his team has driven this project forward with a view to having an investigation capacity for the whole country not just Phnom Penh. The work of the CCF is truly life changing for the children. The destitution, indescribable poverty, and the abusive environment I witnessed during a walk in one of the slums with Scott is hard to describe. To see the sheer joy, happiness, and delight in life in the eyes and behavior of the children I met at the CCF schools and community centre brought home the effect CCF has in their lives and the community around them.
