World Vision Cambodia

In Cambodia, approximately 2.8 million children benefit from World Vision's work each year. We are committed to improving the lives of Cambodia's most vulnerable children through holistic developmental change.

We work in partnership with communities to create sustainable change through long-term programs designed to address the root causes of poverty. We serve to protect children by creating safe, supportive and healthy environments for children to thrive in.

We have been working in Cambodia for over 40 years, and in that time we have gained in-depth knowledge about attitudes towards education, health and child protection. That is why we work together with community members to shift perceptions through education and training workshops embedded in long-term programs to achieve lasting change.

We partner with already-established community groups, service providers and government initiatives to integrate our programs and achieve effective results for the children we serve including their families and communities.

We have three core programs; integrated nutrition, education and protection and participation, which work together to achieve holistic developmental change.
