Since its inception, Taramana also runs awareness campaigns in France for young people, especially students in French schools. Through video conferences, debates, photo expositions, etc., students learn about the living conditions of Cambodian children.

Transform feed and educate children who were living and working in the streets, and train them to become leaders of Cambodia’s future. They operate 27 life centers which each transform the lives of 100 children – all staffed by Khmer nationals, and which are on target to add 600 children every year.
This association was formed in 1995. The primary goal of PSE initially was to provide food to children, so they would not be rummaging through for food from the garbage and to help educate the children embracing the motto “one meal a day, and the opportunity to go to school!” But education is not enough. To permanently improve the situation for the children the aim was to give them a real job opportunity and therefore quality training. Currently, PSE educates over 4,000 children and provides training to 1500 youth.
In addition many programs were developed to support the success of these educational projects: hygiene, nutrition, medical and psychological care, protection, aid to families.

The Indochina Starfish Foundation (ISF) is an International Charity which helps some of the poorest, most disadvantaged children in Cambodia.
The ISF Education Programme strives to take children (mostly from the slums) who have never had the benefit of schooling or those who have had to stop education for economic reasons and support them through a period of “Catch Up’ teaching to their correct age grade for state school. Thereafter the children are sponsored through state school and onto vocational training or further education. These are children who currently spend their days scavenging in the streets of Phnom Penh to raise money.
In addition to education, ISF maintains the children’s health (including optical and dental care and vaccinations) and monitor their welfare.
ISF’s educational programme is focused on children who live in two districts within Phnom Penh. The original Stung Meanchay Education Centre currently serves 225 children; this number will grow to 450 students by 2016. The redevelopment of this Centre will be complete by mid 2013. The second education centre in the Chbar Ampov district opened in September 2012 with 50 new students – a number which will reach 250 by 2016.
