About This Project: Komar Pikar Foundation (KPF)
Per KPF – “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 1990s.  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 disability.  However, for the parent of a child with a moderate to severe disability, it is a huge burden and makes earning an income much more difficult as someone has to look after their child every minute of the day.

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.”


About This Organization: Riverkids
Per Seametrey – “Seametrey’s founder, Muoy You, was born into a very poor family. In 1975, the Khmer Rouge came to power, and Cambodia went to hell. Approximately 2 million people died from execution, starvation, diseases or land mines, among them Muoy’s own parents and siblings.

Muoy was lucky enough to be in France at that time, on scholarship from the French government. Her late husband and she lived in exile for 31 years. All that time they looked for an opportunity to come back to help rebuild the educational system. In 1998, Muoy founded Seametrey, a Khmer acronym for Freedom, Civilization and Love. Since September 2007 it’s had a burgeoning primary section & recently an English language section for youth. The school’s policy is social integration. Parents pay according to their income. Some parents pay full fees, some pay 50%, others pay what they can, in cash, in kind or in service. The school has now 104 students aged 2 to 22.

Seametrey’s mission is to build human excellence to lift Cambodia out of corruption. Its goal is to make quality education accessible to the less fortunate. It works for a profound, structual change in Cambodia.”
