What They Do:
Children in Families (CIF) is a local Cambodian NGO, registered with the Ministry of the Interior since 2009, dedicated to providing high-quality family-based care for orphans and vulnerable children in Cambodia. CIF advocates locally and globally for the belief that the best place for a child to grow up is in a loving family. CIF offers three streams of family care programming: short-term Emergency Care, Kinship Care and Foster Care.
They also provide specific care to children with disabilities and chronic illness through their ABLE program, and engage with the wider community through their Outreach and Church Partnerships Programs. CIF provides technical support for other organizations wanting to improve their social work practice through the OSCaR case management program.
CIF also offers study tours for schools and churches who are interested in being advocates for family-based care through their Rok Kern program.
CIF is a member of Family Care First.
