Children's Future International
February 11, 2010

Children's Future International is an incredible non-profit organization! Operating a community center in Cambodia, CFI has been instrumental in aiding children living near the city of Battambang in northwest Cambodia. The community center provides not only a safe place for social interaction, but also Khmer literacy classes, computer courses, English classes, creativity classes, vocational training, nutritional supplementation, and health-care for local children. My personal involvement stems from a book that I read called "To Destroy You Is No Loss". It's the true story of how a Cambodian family survived the Khmer Rouge takeover during the mid to late 70's. The heartbreaking trials they went through are things many people can only imagine. As fortune would have it, my mother met one of the co-directors of Children's Future International last year. Since that time she has become their chief fundraising coordinator. Children's Fund International is just the type of organization I was seeking for to make a difference and I feel privileged to be involved. The funds are used extremely responsibly to ensure that the children benefit directly. Please take time to review their website! http://www.childrensfutureinternational.org. If you have any questions or want to volunteer your help, please contact me at (801) 427-6388 or write to jonathan@childrensfutureinternational.org

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

helping children not only survive, but thrive in a place where opportunities to escape the poverty cycle are rare.

More feedback

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the honesty of the founders. They not only donate all their own time and money, but also make sure that donations are used for their intended purposes. They operate by the "teach a man how to fish" model, ensuring sustained progress for the children.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

literally revolutionize the way of life for thousands of children in Cambodia by providing quality education opportunities, health supplementation, and vision. This could greatly affect Cambodia as a whole by providing a large ripple effect.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
