Reviews for Cambodian Children's Fund

Rating: 5 stars  

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!

To all who read the reviews. Please, please ignore the negative rantings of the man ( yes it's the same person despite the different names) who is posting the regular negative reviews on this site. We know who he is and he has just found a new platform for his ongoing deranged views on those who would protect the world from child abusers. He actively supports two UK paedophiles that CCF have assisted in imprisoning for abuse in Cambodia ( one who was on the run from my team for child abuse in the UK). I have been honoured to be involved with the CCF and their Child Protection Unit for the last few years and remain a committed and full supporter of Scott and his team who do so much for the impoverished children of Cambodia. I am a respected professional in the world of child abuse investigation and sex offender management and fully support and trust the CCF. I have previously posted my support on this site.

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.
