About Us

Save the Children has been working in Cambodia since 1970. The children’s aid agency had to leave the country when the Khmer Rouge regime took control but re-engaged when they fell in 1979.

Save the Children provided relief assistance to the worst affected families under the Khmer Rouge regime and then gradually shifted its focus to education, child protection, health, child rights governance and disaster relief. Save the Children works closely with government partners to improve children's lives, especially the most marginalised, remote and hard to reach children. 

Vision

Our vision is a world in which every child attains the right to survival, protection, development and participation.

Mission

Our mission is to inspire breakthroughs in the way the world treats children, and to achieve immediate and lasting change in their lives.

Accountability Mechanisms

Accountability to children, citizens and partners is important! 

Save the Children has three functional accountability mechanisms for children, community members and partner organisations to report directly to Save the Children if they have any concerns or suggestions to report to us. This is important for us to learn from those we work with, and to continuously improve our projects and planning. 

Our accountability mechanisms aim to strengthen learning, improve program implementation and impact, and create opportunity for children's voices to be heard.

If you would like to report anything to Save the Children, you can follow one of the below methods:
