New Futures Organisation

Creating pathways out of poverty through education for youth in Takeo, Cambodia

    

About NFO

Who we are

Who we are

New Futures Organisation is a charity based in Takeo, Cambodia. We have been actively working to improve social and educational conditions for local young people for more than 10 years. NFO was initially founded to care for and support a group of homeless orphans in Takeo town. Over the years, we have been able to support these young people to reintegrate back into their local communities and to attend school.

Our mission

Our mission

We aim to provide educational opportunities for disadvantaged children and young people in and around Takeo province of Cambodia. Takeo is a rural area where many families subsist at or below the poverty line, and many children lack the regular access to free education necessary to lift themselves out of poverty. With the support of our partners Right2Smile and Camkids, we aim to provide opportunities and pathways for Takeo's youth to achieve their full potential.

Where we work

Where we work

Takeo is a rural district some 100km south of Phnom Penh in central Cambodia. It is the agricultural heartland of the country, and the majority of the local population make their living through crop and livestock farming and rice cultivation. Takeo Town itself is a traditional Cambodian market town, and the surrounding villages where NFO primarily works are often without electricity and are accessed only by dirt roads which become impassable in the rainy season.

What we do

What we do

NFO provides social and financial support to a number of young people and their families in and around the Takeo area. This support enables them to attend regular school and helps their families to enjoy a more stable economic situation in which younger family members are not required to go out and work. In addition, we administer a network of rural schools around Takeo province, which bring English and Mathematics education to children living in areas where formal educational provision is lacking or unaffordable.

Our successes

Our successes

We are proud that many NFO graduates have continued on to study at prestigious universities in Phnom Penh, while others have been accepted onto career-specific education courses at some of Cambodia's leading training institutions. Many students from our rural schools have been able to improve their English and mathematics skills sufficiently to improve their job prospects, while others have been accepted into leading high schools both locally and in Phnom Penh.

Our partners

Our partners

Over the years, New Futures Organisation has been incredibly fortunate to count on the support and friendship offered by our long-standing partners Camkids, one of Cambodia's leading educational charities, and Right2Smile, specialists in connecting development volunteers with local communities and projects around the world. We remain endlessly grateful for their ongoing help, support and patience, without which we would not be able to achieve our aims of supporting the young people of the Takeo area.

Education

NFO operates six rural schools in villages surrounding Takeo town. Many of the children who attend our rural schools are from families who cannot afford the cost of books, uniforms and school supplies required to send their offspring to regular state schools. Other families rely on their children's help to look after animals and work on the family farm during regular school hours. At some schools, the wet season turns the roads to mud, making it all but impossible for children to access the nearest school which is often several kilometers away. Our goal is to support these disadvantaged young people and offer them the educational opportunities they deserve, enabling them to lift themselves out of poverty and achieve their potential.
