The Vulnerable Children Assistance Organization is a non-profit, non-governmental organization established on June 27, 1994, was created by a group of post-Khmer Rouge orphans out of their concern for Cambodia’s vulnerable children.
Living in extreme poverty, these children were at risk of being trafficked into the sex industry, becoming child domestic workers, or suffering from other forms of abuse in their home settings. VCAO has been working in five provinces to provide these children and their families with basic education, vocational skills, micro-loans and temporary shelter to help them become productive and responsible citizens.More About Read All News
