CCF’s aim is to transform impoverished kids into passionate, engaged young leaders who will work to transform their own communities and country.
Our leadership solutions
The Leadership training aims to prepare a generation of confident young people who can make a difference, unlocking the leadership potential of some of Steung Meanchey’s most vulnerable preteen and teen youth. The program provides more than 900 students with an understanding of governance, human rights, gender rights, empathy, community building and key qualities of leadership such as team work, decision making and communication .
Community volunteer work
Leadership isn’t a buzz-word for our students, it’s at the core of what we do. The program aims to motivate students to become models of social change in their communities. Because we’re dedicated to provide cohesive care, all the leadership activities are integrated with our other programs. CCF leaders teach younger students, feed malnourished community children, visit the homes of those in need and care for the elderly.
CCF took the responsibility to ensure that the most impoverished grannies receive care, where the youth leaders are charged with the care of the grandmothers. Unlike many parents here, the grandparents remember the traditional Khmer customs, family values and community responsibility. Each visit provides our youth with a greater insight into Khmer culture, a much-needed bridge to instill Khmer wisdom and values into the new generation.Sponsor a Granny
There is a clear sense among the children and young adults of the area that they are no longer Cambodia’s “untouchables” and now have a real opportunity to share in the country’s progress. Providing this first-time hope to thousands of Cambodia’s poorest children is CCF’s greatest achievement.
Give to our community
No matter how much or how often you give, you’re making it possible for kids in our community to pull themselves and their families out of poverty.
