Founded in 2004, Cambodian Children's Fund (CCF) provides life-changing education, nourishment and healing to vulnerable children from some of Cambodia's most destitute communities. This well respected NGO cares for more than 2,300 students and 16,000 people annually, providing to entire families and communities in crisis. For the children of the SteungMeanchey area, education is their lifeline out of poverty and CCF offers a solid education aimed at providing hope, opportunity and security.

In 2012, CCF was recognized as having "one of the world's best initiatives in innovative

education", becoming the first organization in South-East Asia to win a WISE Award.

The Cambodian Children's Fund is known for delivering a world class, model of education that provides transformational opportunities for impoverished young people in a learning community

committed to quality and excellence. In order to meet its core mission, CCF has evolved and developed in a unique way that distinguishes it from other NGOs which focus on single or limited program delivery. CCFs programs have expanded to ensure that the families of the children who attend CCF are also supported, with more than 64 programs - everything from health care to debt alleviation programs - all of which exist to support the main goal of providing a consistent, high quality education to the children of SteungMeanchey.

The work of CCF in Cambodia is supported by relationship development and fundraising businesses in USA, Australia, UK and HK, all of which are managed by Boards. 2013 has been a year of transition for CCF. It has grown rapidly since its inception and the organization is repositioning for its next stage of growth.


Volunteers at CCFnot only participate within our organization as highly valued and respected members of our team, but also as a huge part of our development and growth framework. Working to build capacity, Volunteer placements focus on sharing valuable knowledge and skills with CCF staff and students- either within a set position, project or via on-the-job training or workshops. Placements are extremely rewarding and allow volunteers a hands-on opportunity to help grow and develop the very core of our organization. By working with CCF, volunteers assist in empowering our local staff and students to truly become, not only educated and accomplished professionals, but the future leaders of this country.
