In 2007, Tara Winkler and Pon Jedtha rescued 14 children from a corrupt and abusive orphanage in Battambang, Cambodia.
They established Cambodian Children’s Trust as an orphanage to provide the children with a safe home. After discovering that the children weren’t orphans, they started the challenging journey of reuniting them with their families and transforming the CCT orphanage into a model of community-led, preventative child protection.
CCT is now driving the care reform movement in Cambodia and setting the blueprint for what is needed across the world – a preventative approach to child protection.
