Power a Village Hive

CCT’s Village Hive model mobilises whole villages to protect children and prevent them from facing adversity. A Village Hive is made up of networks of people and services that facilitate Holistic Interventions in children’s lives, taking them and their families from a place of Vulnerability to Empowerment.

“It is not easy for me to tell this story. But I don’t want you to feel sorry for me. That is not why I am here. I am here to tell my story because it is important for people to know the abuse and the exploitation in orphanages.”⁠

Knowledge IS power. CCT are committed to providing opportunities to Cambodian youth. Our Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) program, embedded into the curriculum of Public High Schools, has shown the power of education. In 2019 several advanced students competed nationally and internationally for the first time, and won! ⁠
