Helping children at-risk in Cambodia

From 2005 to 2016, Riverkids Project in Cambodia and Singapore helped abused and exploited children through integrated individual, family and community services to stay with their families safely, lower child abuse and prevent child trafficking.

Riverkids is grateful to the many donors and volunteers who made our work possible, reaching thousands of children over the years.

Most of all, to all our former staff, most of whom have gone on to join other NGOs in Cambodia and help even more children and families.

At our closing, we graduated stable families with small business funding and materials, educational scholarships and other support. For families in crisis, we transferred them to supportive partners.

Our remaining funds went to Mother’s Heart for pregnancy support and for educational scholarships for the 23 children and youths in our Smartypants Scholarship program who were on track for university.

As of 2020, we have 3 graduated from university, 5 of those Smartypants in university, 3 in stable jobs and 12 at high school.

If you would like more information or resources from Riverkids’ curriculums, SOPs and guidebooks, please contact Dale Edmonds at



With much love and respect to the families who welcomed us into their homes
and gave their children a better future.
