AT CHILD RIGHTS FOUNDATION, WE ENVISION A WORLD WHERE CHILDREN'S RIGHTS ARE REALIZED IN ALL CIRCUMSTANCES AND ARE FULLY UNDERSTOOD BY EVERYONE. WE BELIEVE THAT WITH YOUR HELP WE CAN EDUCATE CHILDREN AND EMPOWER CAREGIVERS TO ENSURE THAT NO CHILD IN CAMBODIA WILL EVER HAVE TO SUFFER IN SILENCE AGAIN.
There are 5.6 million children in Cambodia. Research shows that 50% of them experience some form of abuse on a daily basis. 2.8 million children are marginalized, mistreated, and overlooked every day. We want to mobilize government entities, teachers, and parents to ensure that children in their care are protected. We are passionate about empowering children to participate in the decision-making and advocacy of their own rights, to speak up and be heard by society - a rarity in Khmer culture.
