Summary

Children in Families is a local Cambodian NGO and exists to place vulnerable children in loving families. The ABLE (Accepted. Belonging. Loved. Empowered.) project will ensure that 40 families caring for Children with Disabilities (CwDs) in Cambodia are equipped and supported to address their special needs through home and community-based therapy, medical support, equipment support, nutrition support, and family education.

Challenge

According to the 2014 Cambodia Demographic and Health Survey, 10% of the population has been affected by disability. Children with disabilities are among those most likely to grow up in institutional care, separated from the love and security of a family. Many factors contribute to this, including the reality that in many parts of Cambodia, therapy and support services for children with disabilities are insufficient or nonexistent. Access to services in rural areas is especially limited.

Solution

Children In Families' ABLE Project provides community based rehabilitation services to children and the families caring for them. The children supported by Children In Families are orphaned and vulnerable children who are being cared for by extended family members or foster families. We bring the therapy and support services to these families in their homes and train provincially-based staff to provide ongoing therapy and case management services.

Long-Term Impact

ABLE promotes inclusion and participation for children with disabilities in local communities as valued, equal members of society. Families are being developed as advocates for children with disabilities helping to raise awareness of the needs of children with disabilities at a local, communal, and national levels. The ultimate aim in Cambodia is for all children with disabilities to realise their right to family, education, and community participation.
