The Cambodian Center for the Protection of Children’s Rights @ Phnom Penh City

Founded in 1995, The Cambodian Center for the Protection of Children’s Rights (CCPCR) works towards freeing children and youth from all forms of violence and exploitation. Through intervention and rehabilitation programs, CCPCR strives to eliminate violence against youth in Cambodia, including child labor, trafficking, sexual abuse and commercial sexual exploitation.  The Branch Foundation began an ongoing partnership with CCPCR in February 2012.

Current Projects

Education

The Branch Foundation supports education for the girls in the CCPCR Phnom Penh shelter. In the shelter, up to 50 primarily human-trafficked victims receive protection and refuge in a secure environment. We provide funding for school fees for 28 girls/women living at the shelter.

The Branch Foundation additionally assists with funding for uniforms, textbooks, daily lunches and bicycles to get to school. We alongside CCPCR work to ensure these survivors are on a path to empowerment and a life of dignity.

To read more about our work with CCPCR, please visit our project page on GlobalGiving.

Note: The Branch Foundation pursues the highest degree of care and protection for each individual/community. To protect the identity of the people on this project, names have been changed and pictures do not necessarily represent girls who have been abused or trafficked.
