Our Mission

We exist to educate a generation of Cambodian children today, to make a difference for Cambodia’s tomorrow.

The Giving Tree is Back!

It's more than just the holiday season; a new school year begins in Cambodia on January 1st!

Our students are eager to learn, but many will arrive lacking school supplies, backpacks, or uniforms. Some will need bicycles.
Thanks to our donors, they know those in need will receive those items. All they have to worry about is studying hard and gaining the education they need to change their lives and break the cycle of poverty for their family.

Help provide the gift of education and ensure our kids can stay in school by purchasing much-needed items.

In recognition of each donation, you will receive a beautiful, sustainably made wood ornament featuring the Caring for Cambodia logo. These ornaments will not only look beautiful on your holiday tree, but they will also serve as a reminder of the
impact you are making on the lives of children in Cambodia.

Hang the ornament on your tree or honor someone special, like a friend, neighbor, family member, or teacher in your child's life. Purchase an item on their behalf, and we'll send them the ornament directly with a card letting them know of your thoughtful gift.
(Details can be entered during checkout.)

Caring for Cambodia is committed to its 21 schools, nearly 7,000 students, many staff and faculty, and the surrounding Siem Reap community.

An Evening for Orange in Austin, TX Oct. 29, 2021

Join us as Caring for Cambodia celebrates the return of its signature fundraising gala, An Evening for Orange! We missed you all so much last year when we were forced to cancel this event. So dust off your formal wear and get your friends out for a night on the town! This is going to be an event to remember.

We're determined to make this year's event even more special than usual so we hope you'll be in Austin to help us raise a glass and toast the amazing efforts of our donors, our volunteers, and our staff for not only meeting the challenge posed by Covid-19 but for continuing to adapt to serve the 7,000 kids who depend on us each year. Schools are closed but the learning doesn't stop for these kids thanks to you and our teachers.
If you're interested in sponsorship, auction item donations, or volunteering for the event, please contact We're so excited to see everyone again!
