Challenge

Much of the work of Cambodian Children's Fund has been focused on the Steung Meanchey landfill district, on the outskirts of Phnom Penh, one of the most impoverished regions in Cambodia. Over the years, extreme desperation has driven an estimated 1,200 families to live and work at this toxic landfill, many of them burdened by profound debt and disease. This project will target 150 at-risk children & adults in & around this community. Anyone 6 or above is welcome to participate in daily classes.

Solution

As Cambodian Children’s Fund residential education centers are full to capacity, the organization currently operates three separate satellite schools to offer free educational opportunities for individuals who lack the means to attend public school.

Long-Term Impact

Through education, Cambodian Children’s Fund is producing young adults and adults with sustained earnings gains, as well as providing a long-term means of raising living standards and reducing poverty.
