Founded in 1994 by the Friends International network, MITH SAMLANH is a Cambodian nonprofit organisation that works with and for marginalised children and young people, their families and their communities, to provide them with a better future. The Cambodian association has set up an education centre for disadvantaged children and young people in Phnom Penh. It aims to combat child labour and begging on the streets, by offering remedial education with the aim of reintegrating these children into state schools, as well as training to guide them towards employment integration programmes.

The Foundation’s support in 2022 will provide the means to serve meals to extremely vulnerable children who do not attend state schools and who are hosted at the association’s centre.

What are the project’s expected results?

In total, over 150 children aged 5 to 12 will have access to one meal per day after their academic support classes.
