Cambodian Children's Painting Project on Facebook

Cambodian Children's Painting Project (CCPP) is dedicated to creating a brighter future for underprivileged children working and living on the beaches of Sihanoukville, Cambodia. CCPP provides opportunities for artistic expression, formal and non-formal education, psychosocial development, and skills training.

Cambodian Children's Painting Project
CCPP works with children who are orphaned or without family support; live in impoverished households, often with uncaring or abusive parents; and lack access to food, clean water, regular education and medical care. CCPP’s objective is to provide these children with the opportunity to develop their imagination and skills through artistic painting as the core activity, and through the sale of their paintings to generate some basic income for themselves and for their family needs.

The project also aims to provide them with a safe, stable and emotionally supportive social environment, which is critical for their development and growth and which they do not enjoy in their everyday lives. Further, CCPP connects artistic expression to general education, and helps the children pursue formal schooling. At the heart of CCPP’s work is the belief that education and knowledge are the antidotes to poverty and exploitation.
