OUR LOCAL NGO PARTNERS

CAD implements programs that are directed at reducing child labour, increasing education and providing low socio-economic families with income generation and sustainable livelihoods. CAD raises awareness and provides training in parenting skills and children’s rights. CAD has worked closely with COH to implement Child-Friendly Schools (CFS) in Cambodia since 2013. As we have now ended our CFS program, COH will work with CAD through our Building Schools and Scholarships programs moving forward.

Kampuchean Action for Primary Education (KAPE) is the largest local NGO in the education sector in Cambodia. KAPE is a nonprofit organisation implementing projects and research at all levels of the education sector in Cambodia, with beneficiaries in primary schools, secondary schools, and tertiary programs. Currently, direct beneficiaries number well over 71,000 children and 1650 school directors and teachers at 165 schools across 11 provinces.

Child’s Dream is dedicated to unconditional help for underprivileged children in the Mekong sub-region. This region is at the core of many humanitarian crises and children are suffering the most. Child’s Dream has implemented over 300 projects in extremely remote and neglected areas. Their mission is to empower marginalised communities to shape their futures. They achieve this by working with communities to improve health care and education for children and provide socio-economic opportunities for families.
