Cambodian Children's House of Peace (Santepheap) in Siem Reap

Organization
Cambodian Children's House of Peace is a registered local Non-Governmental Organization. It is a residential home for 30 children between the ages of 8 - 18. Our mission as an organization is to provide shelter, food, clothing, health care and education to children that come from the very poor countryside villages of Siem Reap province, Cambodia and especially for those who would not have an opportunity for an education due to poverty and lack of schools. Internship students add a great benefit to the staff as they will help build the capacity of staff with such activities as project management and implementation, proposal writing, project monitoring and evaluation, and fund raising.
