Sovann Phoum Organization is working for the poor children and their family
Originally, a French NGO, Enfants et Développement (E&D), was implementing an integrated program in two sub-urban communes of Stoeung Mean Chey and Dangkor, Phnom Penh, in 1991. In the view of achievements and experience gained from the implementation of the program activities, Cambodian staff–– who was implementing the program––established a Cambodian NGO, Sovann Phoum, with the support of E&D, in order to continue program activities in existing areas, and to increase similar activities and services to other areas of Cambodia. Sovann Phoum was, then, registered by the Ministry of Interior as a local NGO, on April 10, 2000, with its own head office in Phnom Penh. Sovann Phoum is a non-government, non-religious, and non-profit Organization, working for the best interests of the child, using child-centered community development approach, and is one of the leading NGOs specialized in child-to-child approach for health education and working for benefiting to vulnerable and disadvantaged groups: children and women, through the implementation of socio-economic programs. Having established with strong social mission, commitment and practical experiences, in three fields of Education, Vocational Training and Micro-finance with disadvantaged and poor people, SP has made considerable contributions to the extreme poverty alleviation of Cambodians, both in urban and rural areas of Cambodia. 1991: The Integrated Program implemented by Enfant Et Development to help poor chilren in Stung Meanchey and Dongkor, urban of Phnom Penh 2000: Registered as Local NGO called Sovann Phoum Staff: Board of Directors: 5 members, ExCom: 4 members, Program and Project team: 18 staff, Finance team: 3 staff, HR and Admin team: 3 staff, and Micro Credit team: 9 staff.
