The mission of EFCC is to break the poverty cycle of Phnom Penh’s underprivileged children and to accompany them in their education and towards employment. Today, the centre welcomes around sixty children in a safe and healthy environment. They are provided with access to education, health care, and a healthy diet. In their villages, the children may represent a significant workforce and source of income for their parents. To compensate for this potential loss of income, bags of rice are regularly distributed to the families.
We are striving to give the children a brighter and better future and for them to get involved, thanks to a quality education, in the reconstruction and development of their country. Getting children into school is the best way to fight poverty. Education is therefore our prime mission.
EFCC provides long-term support to the children until their total autonomy – when they finish their studies or vocational training and enter the labour market.
Our actions are made possible by the generosity of our sponsors and donors. The entirety of our monetary donations directly fund our work with the children.
