The key to the success of CCF's model lies in our commitment to keeping families together. By ensuring that our 2,000 young leaders are active in family and community life, we are creating smart, passionate young people who will create lasting generational change in Cambodia. We work with children and families from impoverished and desperate conditions, but keeping family ties strong is at the heart of what we do. Out of the 2,028 children enrolled in CCF's education programs, more than two thirds (1,412 students) live at home and return to their families at the end of every day. Less than one-third of our students (612 students) reside at CCF - and nearly half of these children return to their homes at least once a week. CCF spends significant amounts ensuring families stay together - whether it is by providing travel for children, or by assisting with employment for parents and grandmothers so they can remain near their children. We have partnered with World Housing to build homes for families in Steung Meanchey - as many as 30 homes each month - so that families can stay together in safe and secure homes. Our approach is working - more than 99% of children remain in contact with their families or extended families. CCF's residential education programs are similar to boarding schools. The children that do reside at CCF facilities remain in close contact with their families.
