We dream of
Empowering and equipping Cambodians to better their hearts, minds, bodies, and souls
in order to grow and develop their full potential and carry that out into their communities.
The campus we dream of is a central meeting place for the community where young kids
feel safe and cared for every time they visit.
Focus on relationship
Building relationships both on and off the campus is key to creating a space where all feel welcome and safe. Our Caseworkers focus on the families in the villages. They make home visits to assess living conditions, offer training on health, nutrition, budgeting and other necessary topics While our campus team connects through classes and activities at the ICF Campus every day of the week. This is a place where kids can come for community, education, and fun. Where they feel safe and loved.
We believe education is the key in helping break the cycle of poverty for these families long term. We currently offer weekly classes including English on the ICF Campus and plan to expand our offering in the near future. In addition, our Caseworkers offer training and coaching sessions to the families in the village for budgeting, health, and nutrition.
We believe education is the key to helping break the cycle of poverty for these families long term. In most families education is not highly valued as parents themselves are not likely educated. In addition, children can find jobs very young and are often sent to work in order to bring in more money for the family. Our caseworkers take time to train the family on the importance of education and will check in often to ensure the child is staying in school, helping them work through any challenges along the way. In addition, we offer classes weekly at our ICF Campus.
Focus on activities
Activities and hobbies are important to developing relationships, socializing, and learning how to deal with conflicts. We want to introduce activities that will broaden their horizon of knowledge, expand their worldview, and stimulate creativity. Many of these activities are offered through the ICF Campus where we have a lake to swim in, soccer fields, tennis courts, and weekly classes.
