PIO serves over 1000 children a day through a variety of programs that include, non-formal education and vocational training. Through our programs we provide some of the most vulnerable women and children in Cambodia with hope for the future.

Our belief is that education and assistance can improve the lives of underprivileged Cambodian people and will lead to a life without poverty.

Most of our operating support comes from Just World International and without their continued support we are unable to do the work we do. Please take a minute to visit their site.
