Boeing fly the flag in Cambodia

Some great news for The Cambodian Children’s Advocacy Foundation (CCAF), who've just secured a $45,000 grant from the world's leading aerospace company and the largest manufacturer of commercial jetliners and military aircraft, Boeing, to help out with their on-going project to implement a Day Care Center/Early Childhood Education, School Integration and Community Development Programs in Banteay Meas, in Kampot province. CCAF is a grass-roots Khmer NGO established last year by Hing Channarith, a former Country Director of Veterans International for the past decade. The primary mission of the CCAF is to support the children of single mothers in the areas of schooling and education, intervention and the prevention of child labor and trafficking. In addition, the nutrition and health of these children must be improved and skills developed to enable mothers and their children to generate an income for their families. The same support will also be given to children with disabilities. Early successes have included the provision of water sanitation and mushroom-growing projects.
