Mith Samlanh (Friends)

RCF is partnering with Friends International, a project which has been successfully working with street children in Cambodia since 1994. Its vision is to protect marginalised urban young people and work with them to create innovative and exciting opportunities to build their futures.

It operates from a centre located in the heart of Phnom Penh, which is close to where the street children live. They work with an average of 1800 children and youth per day providing a complete range of essential services including hygiene, health care, vocational training, primary education, counselling, food, emotional support and cultural activities.

The overall objective of this project is to reintegrate street children into society – into their families, the public school system, the workplace and their culture.

RCF is currently funding a transition home in Phnom Penh for youth who are studying at the Friends education centre. Find out more at
