Welcome to CCDO

The Cambodians endured Genocide during the Khmer Rouge and Pol Pot era (1975-1979), resulting in 2 million deaths or 25% of the population. Every family lost at least one member. Today, 65% of the population is under the age of 25 years. The poverty is widespread and yet, being very proud and hardworking the Cambodians do whatever it takes to make ends meet.

Although the government is attempting to improve the country, there is much more needed, especially in the realms of health and education.

Many families in the rural areas earn less than $2 per day and cannot afford to build water wells or send their children to school. Each child needs to provide their own school supplies and uniforms and the teachers work double sessions for meager pay.

Cambodian Child's Dream Organization was first founded in Cambodia in 2007 by a local tour guide to build water wells. After visiting Cambodia and donating her first well American Ms. Jenni Lipa quickly realized that the children hold the key to the country's future. They deserve clean water, good education, better nutrition and improved health. She spearheaded many new programs and initiatives and founded Cambodian Child's Dream Organization as a US based non-profit organization in February 2009 as 501 ©(3) tax exempt charity.

Due to strong support in the UK, Ms Margaret Jarman founded Friends of CCDO, UK in May 2011, registered with the UK Charities Commission.
