Dear friends and supporters of Aziza’s Place, As most of you know, Aziza’s Place embarked on an ambitious social enterprise venture called Aziza’s Coffee (a mobile coffee cart) in 2014 created primarily to employ parents (mostly mothers) of the children in our care.

Opening doors for Cambodian children and their families
Who we are
Aziza’s Place is a nonprofit learning and development center for underprivileged children in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. The children come from vulnerable families that are struggling to earn a living and to provide for themselves. We offer a wide range of programs to these children and work in close cooperation with their families inside their communities.
Because of our extensive experience in the reintegration of children back into their families and communities, and seeing how important it is for children’s wellbeing, we now cooperate with umbrella organisations and help other NGOs to follow the same steps and guide them in the reintegration process.
Who we serve
Our holistic programs and services provide the children with opportunities for intellectual, emotional and physical development which are key to their advancement into a balanced adulthood.
Our social workers monitor and support the families we serve in the communities to ensure a sufficiently safe and stable environment exists for the children. We focus on the long term goal of helping children and their families to become independent and successful in life.
We provide a wide range of programs within neighbourhoods where our families are resident. We support residential care centers and orphanages in the processs of moving their children back into their families and communitiies.
