Cambodian Children’s Trust (CCT)
Cambodian Children’s Trust (CCT) is a non-profit child protection organisation based in Battambang, Cambodia that prevents children from facing adversity.
Their holistic, community-led Village Hive model empowers families to stay together and achieves transformational change for vulnerable children.
A Village Hive builds resilient communities. It brings a holistic range of services into communities and mobilises community-wide action to protect vulnerable children and strengthen their families.
Their vision is to embed Village Hives into the public systems of each commune across Cambodia. Giving the community ownership of the Village Hive means they are invested in its long-term success.
CCT believe that achieving true empowerment is a matter of who holds the power and who is making the decisions. The people whose lives are affected by the programmes should be the ones making the decisions about how programmes are designed and implemented.
Our donation will support CCT in transferring their Youth Centre programme into all public schools in in their pilot commune.
The Youth Centres are CCT’s most vital service – they ensure that the most vulnerable children in the community can access nutrition, healthcare and education while social workers are working with their families to achieve their long-term goals.
