Cambodia

Our work in Cambodia began in 2013. Being one of the poorest countries in Southeast Asia, the impoverished women and children there are particularly susceptible and vulnerable to the sex trafficking industry. Here at TFI, we support organizations working to bring their communities out of poverty through education and sustainable development, as well as saving children in very rural communities from possibly being sold into the sex trafficking industry, by providing them with an education that might help to save them from that reality.

Cambodian Community Dream Organization

The CCDO’s work in Siem Reap’s poorest communities started in 2007 by placing a few water wells in rural areas of Cambodia. TFI made a field visit to Cambodia in 2013 and was impressed with the holistic way that this organization addressed the basic needs of the villages in which they worked. CCDO now has three schools and libraries, and perhaps most impressive: a solar-powered computer lab. In addition, this group provides education and nutritious meals to over 1,000 children each day and they created multiple health and sanitation outreach programs for the surrounding communities.
