The genesis of the Children & Choice Project (CCP), a part of CamASEAN Youth’s Future, began when our core member of CamASEAN visited Sre Ambil district for the purpose of visiting the community victimized by land grabs by Ly Yong Phat’s sugar cane company. While there, he was heard the voice of an old uncle and the voice of young children, which touched him to investigate the old one-room classroom being used that had a bad smell and was untidy. Our core founder was attracted to power of the old uncle, who is also disabled, and his ability to make changes. This older gentleman is very skilled at teaching children and can teach six subjects at the same time among 50 to 60 children. Our core member decided to establish a volunteer project there to assist the more than 200 families whose children have dropped out of public school because they now have no land to plant upon like they used to. These families are now in debt to around two or three micro-credit banks which began because of the families’ poverty in order to buy food products. If this trend continues, in the near future they will be evicted from their homes by the bank because they have no money to pay them back. Our greatest concern is the children there and their future. Poverty will indirectly influence their parents and encourage or force the children to work or migrate to other provinces or cities. We worry about their lack of education, nutrition, and legal support (children’s rights)
- Freedom to Be Oneself
- Freedom to mature into their sexual rights!
To improve the legal and educational support of the local authority and local teachers so this will encourage children in remote areas like Sre Ambil district, Koh Kong province and Koh Dac village, Kandal province until 2019.
