Institutional support for M’Lop Tapang

Holistic support for vulnerable children in Sihanoukville

2018 till 2021
Sihanoukville, Cambodia

Context

M’Lop Tapang operates in Sihanoukville, a city of around 212,000 inhabitants, more than half of whom are under 18. It is estimated that 21.4% of the population lives in poverty, leading to a large number of children living and working on the streets.

And this situation has worsened dramatically since 2017, with the massive arrival of 300 Chinese companies and 90,000 Chinese nationals, … all leading to a terrible rise in the number of children put to work and dropping out of school, the number of cases of human trafficking, the cost of housing (+ 400%) making it inaccessible to a large number of Cambodian families forced to leave the city, …

Beneficiaries

Vulnerable children and young people aged 0 to 24, and their communities.

Objective

Par l’intermédiaire de la Fondation EPIC, la FJFP a apporté un soutien global à M’Lop Tapang, pour la mise en œuvre de l’ensemble de ses programmes :

1. Sensibilisation : premier contact des enfants dans le besoin;
2. Protection de l’enfance : prévention, lobbying, soutien aux victimes, reconstruction et réintégration;
3. Services médicaux : soins gratuits dans sa clinique médicale et dans les communautés lors de tournées de sensibilisation médicale;
4. Education : le programme éducatif aide les enfants et les jeunes qui n’ont jamais été à l’école à rattraper leur retard;
5. Enseignement professionnel : aide les jeunes âgés de 15 ans et plus à trouver un travail décent leur permettant de mener une vie digne;
6. Stratégie d’entreprenariat social à travers un restaurant géré par MLT, un atelier de réparation de moteurs et deux magasins vendant des produits artisanaux.
