Summary

Caring for Cambodia is changing the future of Cambodia, one child at a time. We currently work with over 6,600 children from preschool through high school, equipping them with the tools they need to lift their families out of poverty. Since we began in 2003, we have seen promising results. Healthy engaged students come to school, stay in school, and achieve positive outcomes. In June 2014, the Cambodian Minister of Education declared CFC schools to be the national model for K-12 education.

Challenge

Cambodia is a country deeply scarred by mass genocide committed by the Khmer Rouge regime from 1975 - 1979, a tragedy that killed an estimated 1.7 million people. Targeted in the genocide were the country's educated class and its professionals, leaving the nation and future generations with few role models as its people worked first to survive, and then to rebuild.

Solution

Caring for Cambodia (CFC) is educating a generation of Cambodian children today, to make a difference for Cambodia's tomorrow. Our schools are safe, modern and technologically equipped. We train teachers, provide tools, and remove barriers to learning. We build Cambodian leadership to guide and sustain these schools, so that generations of CFC graduates can reach their highest potential and make valuable contributions to their community.

Long-Term Impact

Caring for Cambodia (CFC) strives to make it possible for every Cambodian child to attend school from preschool to 12th grade, to graduate with the skills required for higher education or for obtaining meaningful employment, enabling them to become productive citizens and give back to their communities. CFC's long term goals are: To make higher education an attainable choice To improve early childhood education To create a sustainable system that will be run by Cambodia
