Cambodian Children’s Trust (CCT)
Cambodian Children’s Trust’s (CCT) goal is to create an upstream system of social protection by integrating prevention and early intervention services into public systems and facilities, where they can be delivered sustainably by the local community.
CCT is a Khmer-led organisation with an upstream approach to community development called the Village Hive. The Village Hive approach combats and prevents the structural root causes of multidimensional poverty. It is built on a foundation of trust and a process of collaborative community engagements.
In Battambang, Cambodia, the Village Hive is integrating prevention services into public facilities to build a robust social protection system that is owned and operated by local communities. The approach mobilises community-wide action, resulting in stronger family relationships, less domestic violence, less demand for crisis services and resilient, self-sufficient communities.
