Children and Families

GOAL:
For children to be protected and supported to remain within or return to their families and communities.

There are limited social protection systems for children in Cambodia:

  • 1 in every 100 children live in an institution (around 49,000!)
  • 4 in 5 of these have two living parents
  • 3 in 4 report the reason entering institutional care was for education opportunities or to escape poverty.
