The Sangkheum Center for Children provides education, training, scholastic support and care to children between the ages of 4 and 17. Since 2001, the Sangkheum Center for Children has given hope to over 260 orphaned, abused or neglected children and provided education and vocational training to many more who otherwise would not have the opportunity to go to school.

Our Approach is simple, we work with local partner organizations and village leaders to identify children most in need and the selected children live in individual houses with a stable ‘caregiver’ who act as an educator and mentor providing a feeling of a family group.

Our Focus is on prevention and on eliminating social and economic factors which might lead to life of abandonment and destitution. Where possible, we do this by encouraging children to live with their families, in their village of origin and provide social adaptation by offering education, vocational training, social relations and medical assistance.

Our Help doesn’t stop here! Once the children reach a specific age they are given the opportunity to discuss what they would like to do once they leave the Center and are helped to develop a specific skill set which will provide them with a sustainable future.
