About This Project: 
Per Komar Pikar Foundation – “Youth with moderate to severe disabilities are unable to access life skills, education, and therapeutic services within their communities, most often in rural areas. This project will provide children with, not only, access to community based rehabilitation, but also access to function within their own homes. These homes will be modified to become more disability accessible according to each family’s needs.”


About This Organization: Riverkids
Per Komar Pikar Foundation – “The Komar Pikar Foundation is a registered NGO in Cambodia. KPF has a strong governance record, dedicated and trained staff and assistance from international advisers. While KPF is a relatively new NGO (2007), our staff and advisers have been working with this disadvantaged group since the mid 90s. KPF supports poor children with moderate to severe disabilities like cerebral palsy, intellectual disabilities, autism, and other impairments. These children have largely been ignored in our community as most services assist those with mild to moderate disabilities. However, for the parent of a child with a more severe disability, it is a huge burden.

KPF has several community-based programs that provide day-care support including living skills, physical therapies, and activities for these children in Phnom Penh and in the rural region of Kampot. KPF aims to demonstrate the effectiveness of providing these programs and to encourage more and more services in the country.”
