RCF is partnering with Prison Fellowship Cambodia (PFC) to provide education and vocational skills training for youth in two prisons. These prisons contain 80% of all youth incarcerated in Cambodian prisons.
Many of these young males lived on the streets of Phnom Penh, having turned to gangs and crime to survive. With over-crowding and limited staff resources, the prison system provides no rehabilitation programs to help them break the cycle and reintegrate into society upon release.
PFC provides a comprehensive reintegration program providing vocational skills training (computing, motorbike repair, sewing and electronics), primary and high school classes, literacy, sports, creative arts and English.
These programs are making a difference in the lives of over 600 youth. Not only are they empowering them with essential skills for their future, but they are also being taught values and morals through the PFC teachers who act as mentors to the youth. Find out more at www.pfcambodia.org.
