About This Project:
Per Komar Pikar Foundation – “At early of 2009, KPF’s initial research showed that there were many children with moderate to severe disabilities requiring assistance. The government agreed that KPF would construct and manage a small activity training center for those children and young people in already established government facilities for the disabled. The children and their parents can now access physical therapy, respite, special education, life skills and pre-vocational training skills.   Inclusive Education has been strongly supported by the Ministry of Education and a part of that integrated education play integral part of its goals.

Children experience better health, improved mobility and communication, increased confidence, and better quality of life. Parents learn how to better care for their children, access psychosocial support from other parents, and personally develop through training. Community-based activities improve quality of life for the children and their families, as well as serve to raise disability-awareness in the community.”


About This Organization: 
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
hese 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.”
