Cambodian Children’s Fund (CCF) works to transform the lives of the most impoverished, marginalized and neglected children in Cambodia.

Since 2004, we have been working with communities based around the former garbage dump in Steung Meanchey, Phnom Penh, once the largest landfill site in Southeast Asia and one of the most toxic environments.

Starting with one child, CCF has helped hundreds of children off the streets and into education and improved the lives of thousands of families.

Through high quality education, leadership training and direct support programs, CCF is creating tomorrow’s leaders, capable of driving change in their communities, society and country.

While the dump officially closed in 2009, the area remains an entry point into Phnom Penh for destitute children and families with no option but to scavenge or beg, and demand for our services remains high.

More than two-thirds of CCF’s children once worked as scavengers. Very few had access to education and nearly all were living in extreme poverty.

Financial hardship is often the main obstacle preventing children from receiving an education. Parents cannot afford to lose a source of income by having their kids stop working and going to school.

By removing the barriers to education - providing community-based support for families and essential services such as access to free healthcare, clean water and a Food Program - we ensure that every child has an opportunity to attend school.

We believe in an education for all and have made substantial progress in addressing the challenge in Cambodia of keeping girls in education. We make sure that girls get an equal chance to be in school.  An education can provide them with a way out of poverty and put them on path to a stable and promising future. Empowered girls are now leading the way in our schools.

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. These children will never experience the squalid lives that their parents and grandparents did, breaking the generational cycle of poverty.

After 15 years, the results are showing tangible evidence that our method is working.

  • CCF has helped more than 3,500 children and their families with a pathway out of poverty
  • Around 1,855 children currently enrolled
  • 70% of the first 200 students to join CCF have gone on to university
  • 12,145 community members currently accessing CCF services

柬埔寨兒童基金會(CCF)致力助生活於柬埔寨國內,最貧困及被受忽略的邊緣兒童改善生活。

自2004年起,我們便一直與圍繞首都金邊市,斯通棉吉垃圾堆放場周邊的各個社區合作。這個曾經是東南亞最大的堆填區,臭名昭著。腐爛的垃圾堆積如山,四處更是彌漫著濃濃的有毒煙霧,衛生環境惡劣不堪。該垃圾場雖於2009年正式關閉,但該區仍是出入金邊市的主要道路;貧苦家庭及孩童別無他選,只能繼續留守當地拾荒或乞討,對基金會的服務需求依然非常高。

CCF所救助的兒童當中,有三份之二曾為搭荒者;幾乎每一位都活在極端貧困的環境,極少數有接受教育的機會。基金會成立至今,已著力將數百名兒童帶離街頭,並為他們提供教育,協助數千個家庭改善生活。CCF期望通過教育、領導培訓及直資計劃,培育明日領袖,授予他們推動社區、社會及國家改革的能力。

雖然如此,經濟困難往往成為孩童接受教育的主要障礙。父母不能讓孩子因上學而停止工作,斷送收入來源。為消除這個障礙,CCF向這些家庭提供免費醫療保健、清潔水源,還有糧食計劃等社區援助,照顧基本所需,藉此確保每個孩童都能把握上學的機會。

我們相信全民教育,且在讓柬埔寨女性都接受教育的難題上取得實質進展。我們確保女孩子都有上學的平等機會,致力為每一位孩童都提供脫貧的道路,助他們邁向穩定、充滿希望的未來。現時我們的學校中的女生,都在引領著同伴踏步向前。

我們深信在適當的教育及援助之下,一個孩童有帶領家庭擺脫貧窮的潛能,而一整代受過教育的兒童,更是有能力改變整個社會。這些孩子將不需再經歷他們父母及祖父母的艱澀生活,打破貧困的世代循環。

15年過去,實質結果證明我們的方法是有效的。

●      CCF已幫助3,500多名兒童及其家庭擺脫貧困
●      目前約有1,855名兒童入學
●      獲CCF援助的首200名學生中,有70%進入了大學
●      現時有12,145個社區成員正接受CCF的援助服務
