Mission: 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.

Results: Providing 2,400 kids with education and other services. Nearly 800 births with zero maternal deaths through the maternal care program. Dozens of children who once struggled to receive any education are now enrolled or preparing to enroll in university. More students attend university every year. Older students enrolled in vocational training have a 100 percent job placement rate.

Volunteering with CCF in early 2015 gave me the chance to see first-hand the amazing work being done by CCF in the Steung Meanchey community. As well as educating and caring for more than 2,200 children, CCF operates a broad spectrum of community services that support the families to keep the kids in school. The staff really do ‘work from the heart’, with an underlying belief that CCF children can be the next generation of Cambodian leaders. It is clear that CCF's work with these kids is truly life changing - breaking the cycle of poverty and providing them with the opportunities they deserve.

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.

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!
