Cambodian Charity organization is supporting local government efforts to education, women & child health care, agriculture and clean water.
Cambodia is situated in South-East Asia and is comprised of lowlands and mountainous terrain.3 Cambodia gained independence from France in 1953. In 1975, five years after a military coup, the Khmer Rouge came to power and applied a radical and genocidal regime. The Khmer Rouge was defeated in 1979, after causing the deaths of almost two million civilians, including significant numbers of health care staff.4 Following the signing of the Paris Peace Accords in 1991, which included a Declaration on the Rehabilitation and Reconstruction of Cambodia,5 the Ministry of Health embarked on health sector reform through a Strengthening Health Systems Project with the assistance of development partners.6 A free election was held in May 1993 and the country became the Kingdom of Cambodia, a constitutional monarchy, marking its progress towards democracy.7 This was the beginning of a long process toward growth and development that continues today.

At the centre of Cambodia’s development has been a period of sustained peace and stable government, coupled with policies aimed at rebuilding essential infrastructure and institutions. Cambodia’s economy has improved dramatically, with gross domestic product per capita increasing from $608 in 1993 to $2454 in 2012 (purchasing power parity (PPP, Int$)) (see Table 1: Key country indicators). Economic growth is associated with a decline in the national poverty rate from 53% in 2004 to 21% in 2011, 8 and with improved access to education, water and sanitation. A large proportion of Cambodia’s population of 15 million continues to live in communes (social units) in rural areas (80%); and 90% of the country’s poor are rural dwellers. Reaching these populations remains a high priority.

Cambodian Charity Organization (CCO) is new foundation on 2015, Mr. Badel Khan is the founder of CCO and He is the CCO President. CCO was granted permit number 1917 BR.K by the Ministry of Interior on June 14, 2016.

What we do?

Charity for Education
  • Support local government efforts to expand community based preschools for children who do not have access to formal preschools. The programs targets pockets of the country with low admission and high repetition rates in primary school, and aims to improve the chances that children will enroll in primary school at the right age.
  • Support the modelling of new approaches to reduce disparities in education, such as bilingual education, preschools and integrating children with disabilities into the preschool system. Advocate for policy initiatives that address the holistic development of children, including development of an Early Childhood Development National Action Plan.
  • Support home-based programs, which train parents to create a stimulating environment at home that promotes early learning for their children. Support preschool teacher training, which focuses on child’s center and holistic approaches and quality monitoring of early childhood activities.
  • Support the development and implementation of a holistic curriculum, including early stimulation of language and motor skills, as well as good hygiene and sanitation practices.
Women & Child Health Care

Cambodia has suffered from genocide and civil war for decades. During the Khmer Rouge regime (1975-1979) between 1.5 million and 2.5 million people ‘disappeared’ under the eye of Pol Pot. In order to convict the leaders of this ‘regime of terror’ the Cambodian Tribunal has been set up. In 2010 the first conviction occurred.

Although the first democratic elections were held in 1993, it is only since 1999 that the country has enjoyed a degree of political stability and the complex process of political, economic and social rebuilding has started. Despite the political and economic improvements the health status of the Cambodian population is still among the poorest in the world. The Education, Health reforms, with respect to the basic elements of a potentially effective public health system, are partially in place in Cambodia, but there is still a mismatch between the needs of the population and the ability of the health services to meet them.

Clean water
  • Support government efforts in implementing a national strategy for rural water supply, sanitation and hygiene, featuring programs that promote community-based management of improved sources of drinking water, such as establishing simple water safety plans, promoting household water treatment and safe storage, and private sector involvement in provision of services. Support is also extended to primary schools and health centers to ensure adequate water supply for drinking and hand washing.
  • Support the government’s National Strategic Action Plan for Arsenic Mitigation, which tests wells for contamination and educates communities about the dangers of arsenic. In addition, affected communities receive assistance in establishing alternative water sources, such as small-scale piped water systems, rainwater tanks, ceramic water filters and shallow wells.
  • Advocate for commune councils to strengthen community engagement in water supply improvement through Water and Sanitation Users Groups focused on promoting use and maintenance of water facilities and protection of water sources and the surrounding environment.
  • Promote the use of user-friendly, affordable and simple water quality test-kits that make it possible for communities to evaluate their own water sources and carry out evidence-based negotiations with the authorities. This is also an opportunity for empowering communities to not only inform authorities of shortcomings, but also to notify other community members when water quality is poor and other steps that need to be taken for basic household water treatment.
