New Cambodian Children’s Life Association (NCCLA) is registered in Cambodia as a Non-Governmental Organisation.
Founded on 11 November 2004 in Pnomh Penh by Lay Neth and his wife Thavy, the organization takes orphaned children and youths at risk under its wings. With their personal savings, Neth and Thavy bought an apartment to provide a roof over their heads and proper education to the children.
All NCCLA children receive education, and the older ones also work in the restaurant to help support the large NCCLA family. In addition, all of them are trained in traditional Khmer dances. Nowadays, Staffs at NCCLA have been working for their job very smoothly and efficiently in caring for and offering education to some Cambodian orphans and poor children who are living and are being provided education under the safe shelter of the New Cambodian Children Life Association. Some of them passed their high school examination and are pursuing their tertiary education in universities.
Proud to showcase the multi-talented youths, NCCLA provides the children with ample opportunities to perform the dances in front of large restaurant crowds at Veiyo Tonle restaurant on weekends. Do make sure to drop by and enjoy the performances by the children when you visit Phnom Penh!
The Association has it own laws which firmly states that:
Both sexes children aged from 16 to 20 are eligible to leave the Association to look for jobs or to earn experience for themselves so that they can learn the lesson for their lives by using their competence and knowledge learnt from NCCLA. And if any child has a wish to continue his/her education in the bachelor or doctorate level in the university, then NCCLA would give him/her the opportunity to continue their education happily without prohibiting at all.
NCCLA not only think of the clever children, smart student but also it is taking care of the female and male children who are not good at studying and not like studying. We have sent them to study the skill for their lives, such as the dull boys sending to study machinery skill, refrigerator air conditioners repairing, connecting electricity, Microsoft Word, Excel, Powerpoint and Khmer Unicode. If they are girls, we send them to study hairdressing and make up skill and so on.
