Breaking free from an old me

“I know how it feels to be discriminated. I won’t do the same to others,” says the thirteen-year-old Kompheak, one of One Goal’s premiere soccer players in Svay Chek, Banteay Meanchey province.

Malnutrition is the underlying cause of 45% of all child deaths in Cambodia. World Vision has been running a health and nutrition programme focusing on infants and children under 5 years old, as well as pregnant and breastfeeding woman, working with community volunteers to promote behavioral changes and access to appropriate health and nutrition guidance.

Sreyni was forced to leave school when she was 5 years old since her parents couldn’t afford her education. At 15, she was convinced to work in a garment factory. Thankfully, World Vision has supported her to be part of the vocational training, she’s now working full-time and got promoted in a higher position at a construction company in Phnom Penh.



World Vision first entered Cambodia in 1970 in response to the government of Cambodia’s international appeals for assistance. Up to 1975, we had constructed the National Pediatric Hospital for our children and provided emergency aid including medical supplies. After the fall of Khmer Rouge, we restarted our work in 1980. Only 5 of our 270 staff were still alive.  

Since then, World Vision has grown to over 800 staff working in Phnom Penh and 9 provinces across the country, benefiting 2.7 million children annually. 

Having been working closely with the Cambodian Government, NGO partners, local communities and other relevant stakeholders for over 40 years, World Vision is committed to creating a better future for children by working in these areas:

  • Nutrition: Supporting plans to help our children be healthy and well nourished;
  • Education: Partnering in strategies to improve education for our children;
  • Child Protection: Working to ensure that children are being prevented and protected from abuse; and
  • Youth: Helping youth to be creative, active citizens and the leaders of tomorrow.
