News: COLT is part of Family Power
Recently we joined forces through a new organization called Family Power. Together with nine other Dutch organizations and their international partners, we try to achieve common goals by sharing knowledge about family care and creating a voice for vulnerable children. Worldwide, 6 million children are raised in orphanages. COLT is one of the organizations that focuses on a sustainable future for these children.
Family Power researches training and communication programs and together we try to learn from each other: how to deal with the same problems and what we can learn from the approach of others.
COLT supports poor families in Phnom Penh by providing opportunities to develop themselves. In our community centre both children and their families get education as well as medical and social care. Additionally, there is a strong focus on sports activities and understanding of our environment. Finally, COLT also provides temporary and long-term care for children, that can’t live at home. In these cases COLT strives to restore the family situation, with the ultimate goal to reintegrate children as smooth and quick as possible.
