This Life in Community

This Life in Community’s goal is to enlist community support rather than institutional care for children and families who are at risk of being separated primarily due to family members being imprisoned.

Problem

In Cambodia, around 49,000 children live in institutions due to many issues including domestic violence, lack of educational opportunity in rural areas, poverty, and limited social protection.

Solution

As with all of our programs, we strive to build the capacity of residents to identify and respond to issues within their communities, by:
  • Enabling the community to respond to cases of potential child-family separation
  • Strengthening collaboration and cooperation of service providers (NGOs, government bodies) to prioritise community based care options over institutional care.
  • Ensuring communities are aware of the resources and support services available for children and families
  • Conducting awareness raising campaigns focused on the benefits of raising children within their families and communities as opposed to institutions
