What We Do

What We Do

Our core sectors cannot be achieved in isolation, addressing issues of poverty requires a multi-faceted approach. We work in a cross-section of areas to ensure communities benefit from change, in the long term. We combine; child protection, economic development, education and health and nutrition for lasting impact

Child Protection

Children are vulnerable. We want to ensure all children are safe and free to enjoy their childhood.

At the core of what we do, we aim to implement measures to ensure children grow up in child safe families and communities. To do this we focus on prevention through positive community attitudes and behaviours and provide support for victims of abuse through community-based restorative care.

Knowledge is power. Equipping children with the knowledge they need to thrive

We’re working to increase teaching quality and student’s overall success in learning. We do this by addressing issues related to parental engagement to their child’s education, access to learning resources and appropriate school facilities and teacher training

Nutrition

All children deserve to be happy and healthy

We do this by providing families with access to seasonal crops all year around, training health workers to detect and treat malnutrition and educating caregivers and communities on how nutritious foods and hygienic health practices and immunisations will protect children against infection and disease

How We Work

We use a holistic approach to development ensuring we tackle root causes to lift children, their families and community out of poverty. We do this in partnership with local stakeholders in order for children to live life in all its fullnes

Working with communities

To achieve ultimate child wellbeing we need to work within the context of that child’s life, because we know child well-being is tied to living in a safe household, healthy environment and supportive community. So we approach development holistically.

We work with communities to establish priorities and the time it will take to achieve their goals. Addressing the root causes of poverty involves building trusting relationships, breaking mindsets, changing attitudes, and providing tools, skills, and training – all of which requires a great investment of time.

Once we engage with a community we are committing to long-term programs which aim to build capacity in the community so there is little reliance on World Vision. Programs can last between 5-15 years depending on the community. Before we work with a community, we sit and listen to them to determine how to best approach the issues

Water

Water is an essential life source

So far we have provided 38,564 children access to clean drinking water. Although each year children still die from water related diseases. That is why we are working hard to install more water treatment plants, boreholes and piping and taps. To ensure no child is at risk of fatality simply from drinking water.

Youth

Youth are a driving force for development. We encourage youth to participate in programs to build their skills and confidence so they can change the world by making their communities better places to live.

Young people face many challenges which prevent them from reaching their potential. We provide opportunities to equip and empower youth to create a positive future for themselves and the people around them. We ensure young people are included in decision making at a local level and train them in life skills to prepare them for the future. We believe youth are valuable agents of social change and work to support them

Economic Development

Children eat better food and attend school regularly when their family’s livelihood is more secure and resilient. That’s why we aim to empower a sense of hope for a better future by promoting food stability.

Over 60 years of experience globally has taught us that the best way to help children is to bring about change in their communities. Children thrive in environments which are supportive to their growth. That’s why we invest in promoting equality, inclusiveness, and sustainable economic growth, so that together we can end extreme poverty and allow at-risk children to reach their full potentia

Disaster Response

When disaster strikes, we respond.

Our Disaster Management Unit comprises of technical staff coordinating disaster risk reduction and response through capacity building, strategy and programming. According to The World Risk Report Cambodia is the 8th most at risk of natural disasters and ranked 15th as the most exposed. Cambodia is susceptible to flooding, storms, and drought, that’s why we’re working with 181 schools in 46 communes to reduce the effects of disasters and equip communities with the tools to respond to disasters

Faith and Development

We believe that everyone is created in God’s image, and has a rightto a safe, healthy, hopeful, fulfilling, and meaningful life. This is a big mission, and we need help.

We collaborate with people who share our values towards children: compassion, love, and mercy. Believing that God works through all people, we work with those who are likeminded from all faith backgrounds reach the most vulnerable children in the most dangerous place
