When I visited the Takeo Province in Cambodia, I witnessed the reality of sex trafficking and child labour - a by-product of their proximity to the Vietnam border. Most people in the village had never finished primary school and were locked in a horrific cycle of poverty and malnutrition. I realised that they needed a long-term solution, and I was not going to leave until I helped.
These communities are locked in an endless poverty cycle, where parents are unable to afford education, food or clean water for their children, leading to in limited employment opportunities and sustained generational poverty. Often, the only option for survival is for children to work where they are subject to abuse and sexual exploitation.
Takeo Trust community centre was built as an education and support hub, run by a local PCI project manager and PCI employed teachers under the management of Sarah and our directors. Through the centre, Project Change is able to offer education, nutritional meals, clean water, healthcare, and support to the community.
