CPOC doesn't ask volunteers for money and provide 2 meals per day (Lunch and Dinner with local food); and room stay for free.

GETTING TO CPOC foundation family:

The CPOC foundation family house is on Road Number 3, Kok Angkogn Village, Preyvihea Commune, Kongpissey District, Kompong Speu Province, On right side of road number 3 and opposite the Ang-Chum Pagoda, In north Pangsey Market (about a half kilometer before market). The volunteer will need to get on a local sharing bus (over an hour) from Phnom Penh to CPOC foundation house. For any questions or more information please contact Mr. Kim via his phone number is 0889960285 (24hrs/day).

The volunteer can find a bus by on their own, but CPOC is offering some easy advice to get a bus from Phnom Penh to CPOC foundation house. All of these bus drivers listed below know where the CPOC house is very well. The volunteer will need to ask tuk tuk (or other) driver to phone these bus drivers to find their exact location and schedule, as they do not speak English

1- Mr. Thonn, his phone number is 0887567600 and his bus leaves Phnom Penh around 11:10 am or 11:30 am

2- Mr. Da, his phone number is 0973405937 and his bus leaves Phnom Penh around 11:10 am or 11:30 am

3- Mr. Thou, his phone number is 012300402 and his bus leave Phnom Penh around 11:30 am or 12:15 pm

4- Mr. Buch, his phone number is 092237492 and his bus leave Phnom Penh around 1:20 pm or 2:30 pm

5- Mr. Lath, his phone number is 017693132 and his bus leave Phnom Penh around 4:00 pm or 5:00 pm

Note: The volunteer can find bus on their own; the information above just gives some idea for an easier way to get CPOC foundation family. The cost per person is no more than $3usd. The ride to CPOC foundation has some nice scenery sightseeing especially during the wet season when the rice fields are a beautiful green and golden during the harvest season. Furthermore the local buses give you a true experience to Cambodia, an opportunity to ride with the people and products, escaping mundane tour busses.


The mission of Caring for Poor and Orphaned Children (CPOC) Foundation is to alleviate poverty and suffering in Cambodia by providing orphaned and abandoned children a safe home, food, clothing, health care, education and love. The center is located 45 minutes south of Phnom Penh in a large building in one of the poorest provinces in Cambodia. The director, Kim Ny, and his family help to care for children both orphaned, abandoned in need. The main sponsor of this orphanage is Celebration Lutheran Church located in Puyallup, Washington, USA.

Even though there are 14 children living under the roof of Caring for Poor and Orphaned Children, our new center is becoming much more than an Orphanage. It is starting to be a Center for the community. Mr Kim is teaching English and Khmer classes and providing day care for the working poor. We have just purchased over 100 toothbrushes and toothpaste free for the children living around the center and teaching free hygiene classes to both the children and adults of the community. Day care is already watching 20 plus children a day and about forty children a day come to the center for English classes. The center has purchased two computers and has limited Internet. Kim plan is to start teaching internet classes to the older children soon. None of these opportunities would be available to the children from this rural area.

If you ever wanted to help, but thought that you could not make a difference, just look into the eyes of these children. You can make a difference to them. CPOC does not receive any Cambodian government or non-governmental organization (NGO) help. They are totally dependent on private donations. You can make a tax deductible donations to Celebration Lutheran Church and mark the check CPOC Foundation or we can set up electronic transfer of donations to better meet your needs. Join us as we do God’s work toward improving a community 9,000 miles away.

You can also meet "G", he is very welcoming, loving and lazy puppy. CPOC does not allow anyone to smoke inside the house but out side is okay. Our children go to bed around 9:30 pm and wake up around 5:00 am - 5:30 am. We have dinner around 7:30 pm after we finish all classes. CPOC children spend approximately an hour to do their home work before enjoying movie time. Our school is open from 7:00 am until 7:30 pm, Monday thru Friday. The age group of CPOC's children is 2 to 18 years old.

ACCOMODATION: The volunteer room is on the ground floor and shared with other volunteers. We have mosquito nets, pillows, blankets and mats available. As with traditional Cambodia life we use pot showers, and we do not have air conditioning,
