M'Lop Tapang has been working with disadvantaged children, youth and families of Sihanoukville since 2003. We currently work with over 5000 children and 2000 families at nine specialized centers in the Sihanoukville area providing shelter, medical care, sports and arts, education and training, counseling, family support and protection from all types of abuse.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Cambodia is a poor country. The city of Sihanoukville continues to see an increasing number of poor street working and street living children and families. Sadly, these children and youth not only miss out on education, but become the most vulnerable children in the community, exposed to street and gang violence, child abuse, drug use and isolation from their peers as well as the community at large.
How will this project solve this problem?
M'Lop Tapang strives to provide a safe haven for the street children of Sihanoukville, offering care and support to any child at risk. We offer access to education and training, reintegration with families, and creative and recreational activities, while ensuring protection from all forms of abuse.
Potential Long Term Impact
With your support M'Lop Tapang allows underprivileged children to embrace their childhood so they can become responsible adults and positive, independent members of society.
