Cambodian Children's Fund
Cambodian Children's Fund was founded by Hollywood film executive Scott
Neeson, who travelled to Cambodia on holiday in early 2003 and found his life
changed by the desperate circumstances and unlikely courage of Phnom Penh's most
After a 26 year-career in the film business, including tenure as president of
20th Century Fox International and a similar position with Sony Pictures
International, Scott exited the industry to establish and oversee CCF. He is now
Executive Director and lives year-round in Phnom Penh.
CCF was originally developed as one shelter providing a safe haven for 45
children in critical need. Within four short years, the CCF has grown to
incorporate five separate facilities, where nearly 400 children receive
nutrition and housing, as well as medical treatment, dental services and
CCF children are given a comprehensive educational program that includes
local language reading and writing, as well as multi-level classes in English,
social studies and math. They also attend evening classes at the rooftop
cultural center, where they learn traditional Khmer music, dance and drama.
CCF is also expanding its community relief programs to provide suffering
families better access to education, health care, food assistance and safe
drinking water - essential in an environment where an estimated 80% of illnesses
are water related. Only through self-sufficiency can the generational cycles of
poverty and abuse be broken.
