As a teacher trainer I have seen many schools and communities worldwide. I am in awe to see how within a relatively short period of time CFI has put so much in place that really serves children, young people and families that need it most. A flexible, differentiating and intelligent combination of services addresses the basic needs and rights of each child and family cooperating with the Center, while creating a foundation for a way out of the dire conditions they were born into.
I’ve been working with Children’s Future International both, on the ground in Cambodia with the children and staff as well as for the Board, supporting CFI also on more strategic matters on several occasions. We have learned CFI to be an organization that is based on strong values and respect for the child. In only a few years since it was founded, CFI has also tackled important strategic, ethical and governance issues and has built a solid foundation on which its activities can develop. We were so obviously convinced about the quality of work done in Cambodia but also about the clearly focused mindset and the positive spirit emanating from all people involved. That convinced us to give an extra effort by founding a local organization in Switzerland last year, which is aimed at supporting CFI in all their endeavors.
