Ensure a stable environment for the child, also by giving him access to education, in order to enable him to integrate into society.
For those who are orphans or cannot be reintegrated into their families, the protection centers provide protecting environment to the child while still being open to the community. The children are housed, fed and listened to; they take part in the daily life of the center and attend the public school like other children.
Whenever possible, family bonds are maintained and encouraged. Assessments of the family situation of children are regularly conducted. If a significant improvement is noted and there are no risks for the children, they leave the center and are reunited with their close relatives.
- Enrollment in public school
- Psychological support
- Sociability and respect of a Cambodian way of life

- Family reintegration
