Pour un Sourire d’Enfant (For the Smile of a Child) is a French charity created in 1996 by Christian and Marie-France des Pallières to help Cambodian children by providing them food, healthcare, education, and vocational training.
What do they do?
The charity was created after Christian and Marie-France des Pallières went to Cambodia in 1995 for a humanitarian mission, where they discovered the impact of 25 years of war in the country. Children are the main victims as their future and conditions of life are limited.
Pour un Sourire d’Enfant’s mission is to help children escape from destitution and lead them to decent, skilled, and well-paid jobs to become balanced and independent adults both socially and professionally.
To achieve this goal, six main programs have been developed: food, health, protection, education & schooling, vocational training, and help for families.
