CHILD WELFARE

OBJECTIVE

To help marginalized children to reintegrate within their families and society, through emotional, educational and material support.

PROGRAM

Children victims of poverty, violence or a difficult family situation constitute a vulnerable population, often out-of-school and traumatized, and living at the margins of society. For 20 years, Krousar Thmey has based its work on a path adapted to each child, over the long-term and in keeping with the Cambodian way of life. The children are welcome in the different facilities: temporary care facilities, centers of permanent protection and family homes. Family reintegration is always favored whenever possible.


TESTIMONY
Sreyheng, 14 years old, welcomed in protection center

Sreyheng is a 14 years old girl, born in an underprivileged family in Kampong Cham province.

Read her story

 She used to sell firewood to support her siblings and be able to go to school. When her parents got divorced in 2010, she had no choice but to go live with her grandfather. Unfortunately, the old man’s incomes were not sufficiant to cover the expenses of an additional family member. To ensure Heng a brighter future, she was referred to Krousar Thmey’s protection center in Takhmao in 2011. “My life changed noticeably. I didn’t have to worry about earning money every day any more. In the center, I had access to a decent accommodation, nutritious food, clean clothes… Furthermore, Krousar Thmey bore all my scholarship fees, such as my new uniform or the necessary materials.”
