PLAN IN CAMBODIA

Plan has been operating in Cambodia since 2002, helping poor children to access their rights to education, health, sustainable livelihoods and protection.

Our work benefits more than 600,000 children and reaches nearly 80,000 families in more than 580 communities.

Plan’s top priorities include striving to increase primary school completion rates, raising sexual and reproductive health awareness among adolescents and reducing maternal and infant mortality rates.

Our work with the government to ensure that all citizens have registered birth certificates continues to be an extraordinary success, with the total number of registered citizens increasing from 5% to 92%.
