Every day at CCF we see children who once faced bleak futures flourishing through our support and their own hard work. It’s why we do what we do. We want the world to hear these extraordinary tales and who better to tell them than the students themselves? Welcome to our new regular feature: Transformation Tuesdays.


“My parents sold snails in Kandal province, but we didn’t have enough money so my father decided to move to Phnom Penh to find work. But he could only find work as a garbage scavenger. Not long after we moved to Phnom Penh, my parents separated and my father couldn’t afford to rent a room for us to live in. We lived in a tiny hut on my grandmother’s land. He had to work very hard from morning until night. My brother and I stayed alone in the shack while my father worked every day.

“It was really one lucky day that I was accepted into CCF’s program. CCF provides me with study materials, school uniform, food, transport and health care. Here, I can study English and Computer and I am now studying at public school. I enjoy my life here. Everything is getting better from day to day.” Maliza,
