Removing the barriers to education that keep children out of school

For 16 years we’ve been working with some of the most impoverished communities in Cambodia. Originally, our world revolved around the health and well-being of 45 children from the Steung Meanchey garbage dump. Today, there are around 2,000 students working towards a better future for themselves and their families through CCF’s award winning education program.

We educate tomorrow's leaders today

With the right education, a child's potential is limitless – the reason it’s our greatest priority.

Our approach is based on a fundamental belief that education will provide children pathways out of poverty. By developing the leadership potential of our students, leaders will emerge that will create generational change and a better future for Cambodia.

We’re required to rethink previous ways of working, sometimes because they’re outmoded, other times because they are ineffective, and most often because the working environment changes. Innovation is essential to our understanding and growth.

CCF One Childs Story Nganh 1
Nhanh never believed he would leave

"I was born to be poor"

"We would eat what we found in the garbage. It would have worms in it but we didn’t care. We just wanted to survive," says Heuv Nhanh - one of CCF's first students.

Today, Nhanh is becoming a successful filmmaker and is great example of the impact of Scott Neeson's vision and the tireless work of CCF in the Steung Meanchey community.
