Cambodian workers make up something like 70% of the service and construction workers on the island of Koh Chang.
Some of these workers do not yet have their work papers and this means that their children cannot attend Thai schools. Without CKC, children aged between 4 and 16 years old would be left in the tin and plastic-sheet huts they call home for up to 10 hours alone or taken along to construction sites or other dangerous work places. CKC transports these children to and from school, they give them a hot meal every day and they also give them a chance to break the poverty cycle by giving them an education.
The Center provides a safe, nurturing environment, food and schooling to 50 children on Koh Chang.
Their goal is to give these children free education for a better tomorrow. A hand up, not a hand out.
Their costs are minimal, but they do need help from generous people like you to continue this valuable work.
Their school is a non-profit organisation and receives no support from the state but survives on contributions from visiting tourists and other people out of good will to support the children’s needs and running costs.
Besides a donation, any help is welcome!
Whether you want to get involved in teaching, volunteering, playing football with the kids, helping out in general, etc., Cambodian Kids Care Center is the right place for you to contribute your life skills to the less privileged and make a difference.
You are welcome to visit the school. Follow the signs on the road which is on the opposite side of Ramayana Resort in Klong Prao until you arrive at the school.
They WON'T charge you to visit them and help them!

Even the smallest donation can help to make those kids happy and get a better start in their life!
