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.



Branches in Cambodia

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. 

The Hotel School in the province of Sihanoukville where students are taught managerial skills, culinary and restaurant management. 

Kindergartens in Battambang, Poipet and Sihanoukville which provides day care, over night care and early years education.



Our mission

We are looking for persons to sponsor children from unprivileged communities, especially orphans, abandoned kids, child workers, children with HIV or disabled children. 

With a monthly fee, the children are able to access their human right to an education. 

We are also support the families of teachers at the schools themselves.


Other projects

Targeting poor communities by providing solar plants to houses without electricity
Providing clean drinking water by building wells, pumps and filters
Building sanitary toilets and flushes to reduce the spread of disease.


About us
Don Bosco Children Fund belongs to the Don Bosco Foundation of Cambodia (DBFC). It is made us of Salesians (Priests, Brothers and Sisters) who’s aim is to help the development of Cambodia and reduce the negative affects that development can pose to those who can not access the benefits. 
Our vision
There are many provinces in Cambodia with a big number of children and youth. However without education and therefore work in these rural regions many young people are forced to migrate as far as Thailand to look for better opportunities, but without enough education they are an easy target for exploitation and abuse.
Therefore by giving them a guarantee to the access of education situations like this will be avoided.


One of the most powerful tools for the social and economic progress of a country is quality education.

At present, around 30 percent of our population is residing below poverty line, these people are unable to meet their basic needs.

We can’t eradicate poverty without people’s active participation.

We need to start considering helping underprivileged children as our social responsibility.
