COCD works with vulnerable children and their families in rural Cambodia who are living in poor conditions and/or at risk of experiencing abuse and exploitation.
COCD aims to improve the lives of vulnerable children by addressing a number of challenges including: poor education, family incomes, migration and human trafficking, access to clean water and sanitation and participation in decision making in the family, school and community setting.
COCD addresses these issues by planning and implementing integrated rural development programs in partnership with the villagers, local authorities, NGO’s and the government sector.
