Don Bosco History
Don Bosco Children Foundation of Cambodia was opened in 1992 to outreach and care for children from disadvantaged communities. It grants scholarships to poor children and is supported by international sponsors.
Don Bosco Children Fund’s objective is to help poor families in Cambodia to break out of the poverty trap by:
Providing support for children and families in need, where funds from sponsors will accommodate the child´s school fees, their uniform, meals for the day and other essential needs.
To help students of the children fund eventually join the workforce by making them more employable through offering technical education to those who have completed secondary school and teach them a skill that they can specialise in.
Fight modern evils like domestic violence, child labour, child abuse and child prostitution by making education a more desirable route.
The Don Bosco Children Fund in Cambodia offers 5 branches across the country including Phnom Penh, Sihanoukville, Battambang. Poipet and Kep.
Within all these areas there are Don Bosco Technical schools with technical programs that are extremely desirable to help with the development of Cambodia such as Social Communication (Internet, mass media, IT), Secretarial, Front Office Administration, Printing, Automotive, Electrical, Mechanics, Agriculture, and Fine Arts.
