The Family

This project makes know the plight in wich they found most Cambodian families, forgotten by their government. Currently, Cambodia has a serious problem of child overpopulation (there is an average of 5.6 children per married couple), joined to a considerable poverty level (there is a percentage of 7.3% in infant mortality). Cambodia’s total population amounts to 13.5 million people and a 38% of them are children under 15. This context implies an extreme and almost unbearable situation, since there is no social project in sexual education , and in raising awareness towards the use of preservatives, as far as governmental authorities are concerned. At the same time, there is a complete lack of interest to face up to this problem and to find a solution to it. Therefore, we encounter a social reality in which an uncertain future awaits a great number of children, since their families cannot give them sustain, and they cannot but send them to orphanages until their coming of age, or send them to the streets to sell who knows what products.
