Aziza's Place, Phnom Penh, Cambodia

Aziza’s Place is a local NGO supporting vulnerable children, largely those working in slums as garbage pickers, by providing a range of educational and developmental services to them and their families.

They run a day centre where they provide meals, healthcare and psychological support to the children and their families.

The public school runs for half the day and the children can then spend the afternoon at Aziza’s Place centre learning further curricular and extra-curricular subjects, such as karate and dance lessons.

For some children they also pay their public school tuition fees. For the parents and families, they are starting to develop social businesses to provide alternative employment and a way out of the rubbish dumps.
