“The Cambodian Children’s Fund was established in 2003 by Scott Neeson, then working as a film executive for a Hollywood studio, including time as President of 20th Century Fox International and as head of Sony Pictures’ international marketing. He exited the film industry in 2004 to work full-time on the charity. He is now Executive Director and lives year-round in Phnom Penh.”
Let’s start with where is Phnom Penh, Cambodia?
Cambodia’s history is a tragic one. The people of Cambodia are still suffering, and the children are the worst victims. From starvation to prostitution, the lives of some children are horrific to say the least.
Cambodian Children’s Fund is trying to change that, one child at a time. It started housing 45 children, and today the number has grown to 240. They have three facilities which they call CCF1, CCF2 and CCF3. Cambodian Children’s Fund provides more than shelter, clothes and food. Education and medical care is also on the top of the priority list. Even vocational training for the older children is provided. Computer skills, restaurant management, and cosmetology are a few that they offer.
In November of 2006 they opened the Star Bakery, which focuses on three main goals.
- Professionalized Vocational Training
- Bread Production For Commercial Sale
- Community Nutrition and Food Relief
