Mith Samlanh is an award winning Cambodian registered NGO working with marginalized children, youth and their families, living and/or working on the streets or in disadvantaged communities. Mith Samlanh supports children and young people who have either never been to school or forced to drop out of school at an early age to work, often under hazardous conditions, in order to earn money for themselves and their families. These children and youth are at high risk of violence, sexual, emotional and physical abuse, trafficking, neglect, drug misuse and any forms of human rights violations. Mith Samlanh develops creative projects that effectively support the children and youth to access education and become independent and productive members of their society. Mith Samlanh takes a holistic child-centered approach to address the diverse long term needs of these vulnerable populations and provides direct services to children and their families through interlinked activities, including protection and harm prevention on the streets and in communities, emergency shelter and medical support, education classes and school reintegration, vocational training and job placements and income generating activities for caretakers. Mith Samlanh also works in close collaboration with the Cambodian Government, local authorities and partner NGOs to enhance local child protection mechanisms in the country.
In 2012, Outreach teams in Phnom Penh provided holistic services to 5,724 children and youth on the streets, in communities and in Drop In Centers. During outreach, the beneficiaries are provided with food, snack, water, and hygiene material and $5 would cover the cost for one child.
