My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Cambodian Children's Fund, Santa Monica, CA, USA
I had the opportunity to do some volunteer work for CCF in Phnom Penh this past year and experience first-hand what Scott and his team are doing. It was a truly amazing experience that left a huge impression on me. CCF provides a wide range of services for an incredibly poor and disenfranchised community of people. The level of poverty was like nothing I've seen before and I've traveled in developing countries before. CCF is transforming an entire community and helping them lift themselves out of poverty by addressing the major problems that these people face including schooling for children, health care, vocational training, substance abuse and domestic violence. None of this would be possible without CCF. And their effectiveness is stunning. The children, many of whom were abandoned, are transformed into happy, healthy kids and young adults who are role models. They have skills that enable them to find jobs and break the cycle of poverty. The parents learn skills that enable them to earn a living, provide for their families while addressing some of the major underlying problems in their lives such as debt, substance abuse, domestic violence.
I have the greatest respect for Scott and all the people I met at CCF. Their selflessness is inspiring. I would encourage anyone who is trying to make a difference in the world to support CCF in any way they can!
