Improving Cambodia’s Society through Skillful Parenting (ICS-SP) is a national non-profit organization, officially registered with Cambodian Ministry of Interior in July 2015 (see the attached of official status). ICS-SP aims to improve family lives that have a significant impact on the well being of children and women. A goal we aim to achieve by working with parents and caregivers, by strengthening families and communities, and by strengthening and influencing the government, civil society and private sector towards better policies and practice to fulfil the protection of children. At the core of ICS-SP approach is Skillful Parenting program to reduce and prevent violence against children and to promote appropriate parenting for each age.
Objective: to empower vulnerable parents/caregivers in raising-up their children through and to build a non-violent environment for children and women.
Objective: is to become a recognized training agency providing training to other organizations or institutions to incorporate skillful parenting in their programs. International development agencies, local civil society and government agencies will pay a training fee for their staff to be trained as facilitators on skillful parenting. ICS-SP chooses to structure this activity as a Social Business as this will allow ICS-SP to reach out to a large number of parents and caregivers in different parts and segments of Cambodian society in a financially sustainable way.
Objective: to provide a platform for stakeholders from different entities both local and international share their work experiences, documentations, results, good practice, on parenting program in a widen, and enrich national understanding of parenting in Cambodia. This will be in cooperation with Royal University of Phnom Penh (RUPP), which included research assignment on parenting and monitoring.
EXO Foundation loves ICS -SP purpose and objectives as completely in line with our views and values about children care, as well as our campaign against children centers visits by tourists as a charity activity. It is so wonderful such an organisation was created and is strongly backed up by the government of Cambodia who has committed to reduce by 30% the number of residential care centres (orphanage or alikes) by 2018, and to close down right away those which do not follow the minimum standards set up by the government.
EXO Foundation is indeed very happy to give $3,500 in 2017 and will continue throughout years to support this social enterprise.
