ABC s and Rice
ABCs and Rice is located in Siem Reap, Cambodia. ABCs currently assists over 250 students and their families, through food and education. Their mission is to activate global awareness and helpful resources on the plight of those caught in a cycle of poverty; and to initiate and operate effective community projects, based on the concept of educating children in their native culture and English literacy, while concurrently nurturing the physical and psychological well-being of the children and their families. They Believe:
Every child has an inalienable right to food, education, shelter, health services and safety.
A large percentage of those in the world who ‘have”, are willing and ready to help those who “have not”
The best way to support someone out of poverty is to equip them with physical and intellectual resources.
Education creates personal power and opportunity.
Free to Shine
“Empowering with an education to prevent sex trafficking”
Free To Shine is an independently-funded, non-profit organisation founded in Australia, working to prevent sex trafficking in Cambodia. Their work is child protection focused, human rights-based, and designed to strengthen families and keep children in education.
Their Cambodian team works with local authorities and communities to reach the most at risk rural girls, reducing their vulnerability to trafficking by improving their access to education and providing them with social work support.
They don’t build new private schools; they make it possible for children to access their local, public school.
They don’t rescue or save children from sex trafficking; they work to prevent them from being trafficked in the first place.
