PBS News Hour: Agents for Change

October 2019

Watch Cambodian Children’s Trust (CCT) co-founder Jedtha Pon discuss the Orphanage issue in Cambodia in this TV Special, Agents for Change, from USA broadcaster PBS.

“Parents, many in dire poverty, are easily convinced to place their children in these so-called residential care facilities,” says Jedtha Pon, co-founder of a nonprofit called the Cambodian Children’s Trust.

“Most of them think that, in an orphanage, the child will have a better life with access to food, education and medical care.”
