Discover PSE Programs in Cambodia
Pour un Sourire d’Enfant (PSE) has been operating in Cambodia since 1995 to help children escape from destitution and lead them to decent, skilled and well-paid jobs.
Each child must be allowed to develop healthily, both physically and psychologically, and must also be well-educated, so that they can become well rounded independent adults both socially and professionally.
To achieve this goal, six main programs – adapted to the needs of the children – have been developed: food, health, protection, education & schooling, vocational training and help for families.
6,000 daily meals are served to children attending public schools as well as those who study at PSE center. The baby milk plan provides formula to mothers who cannot breastfeed and would otherwise have to give rice water to their babies.
PSE clinics in the Center and in four public schools as well as two mobile clinics and one dental bus provide 2,400 consultations per week. They employ doctors, nurses, psychologists, pediatric nurses and physical therapists.
Boarding facilities and foster families are provided for 160 children, orphaned or in danger of violence at home. Residence Halls welcome over 250 students of PSE Institute whose families live too far from the center.
3,300 children attend partner schools. 1 100 who are three or more years behind are enrolled in remedial schooling. 600 attend in other educational programs.
1,500 students attend one of PSE Institute’s 20 vocational training programs. Curriculum are developed with the help of leading European Schools and companies.
