Celebrating Children’s Day

Who We Are?

Cambodian Volunteers for Community Development (CVCD) was established on the 25th of December 1992 by a group of local Khmer students, who were at the time studying English behind the Royal Palace in Phnom Penh. Mr. Peter Pond and his foster Khmer-American son, Mr. Arn Chorn-Pond, supported these local youths to establish an organization that would educate and empower poor people, while encouraging them to become active volunteers in their communities. The youth named the organization “Cambodian Volunteers for Community Development”. CVCD was acknowledged on September 22, 1993 by His Majesty Norodom Sihanouk, Former King of the Kingdom of Cambodia and was registered with the Ministry of Interior on May 17, 1996.

Visiting Communities School

The Cambodian educational system has significantly improved since its complete destruction during the reign of the Khmer Rouge. While the overall rate of children enrolled in primary school has increased from 81 per cent in 2008 to 92.5 per cent in 2010, the country continues to face low completion rates for both primary and secondary schools. Many students, especially in poor, rural communities are unable to afford schooling.
