Kampuchea House is dedicated to creating a future for the orphaned and abandoned children from the Sotnikum District of Cambodia. Our philosophy is quite simple – to make every aspect of our children’s lives as close as possible to that which they would experience were they living in a Khmer family.
We are different from other organizations in that we aim to provide for our children until they are able to attain independence through education or vocational training opportunities beyond their year 12 education.
The Cambodian culture determines all practices and includes attending the local Buddhist pagoda and following the Buddhist religion. All children attend local schools and additional classes as required. We see education as the means for these children to leave behind their poverty, especially in the case of the girls in our care.
