Where we are

Cambodia

In Cambodia, our sponsorship programs are functioning since the beginning of 2006. Our office is located in Sihanoukville and organises the intervention in 42 schools in the provinces of Sihanoukville, Kampot and Kandal. Here we implement projects aimed at children who live in a condition of poverty, in order to allow their access to a quality education, at least up to the conclusion of the primary school. We also organise intercultural activities which are complement to the teaching and contribute to the birth registration of all sponsored children.
