Phare Ponleu Selpak is dedicated to upholding the rights of all children.
Child Club was created in February 2015, by 30 students from 16 different villages in the communes of Ochar, Chamcar Samrong and Toul Taek. It comes from the idea that children should be involved in knowing, protecting and spreading awareness of their rights.
The Child Club gives the opportunity to its members to speak out for themselves, and to work on bettering the life of children not only in our campus but also in their communities and families. They meet every three months to discuss themes such as child protection, poverty and domestic violence issues.
We met 7 seven members of the Child Club, from grade 7 to 12 and listened to them speak about the situation of Cambodian children, about their rights, their issues and their hopes.
