Support Our work
Donating to First Step Cambodia supports a local team of social workers and trainers in building and providing key services to children affected by sexual violence in Cambodia. As a local NGO, your contribution will go directly to the implementation of our programs. To have a good idea of the work we do, please have a look at our Annual Report 2019.
Given the very sensitive nature of our work, we adhere to the highest standards in child protection. This means that, however grateful we are for your financial contribution to our work, we cannot share information on individual children nor organize participation in any of our activities directly involving children. Instead, we provide anonymous case studies and are fully transparent by sharing our external audit reports upon request. Every year, our annual report will inform you of how your contribution made a difference.
First Step Cambodia demonstrates full programmatic and financial transparency. We are monitored by strict international partners who are experienced in the field of child protection. We receive an annual external financial audit and a triennial external programmatic audit.

Become an international Partner
First Step is looking for international NGOs / foundations who want to help us increase our visibility and/or facilitate donations abroad. Interested in supporting what we do? Contact us to discuss the option of adding us to your foundation's portfolio and provide fiscal sponsorship to donors in your country.
As a Cambodian NGO, we do not have access to payment platforms such as PayPal and cannot provide tax receipts to donors by ourselves. Together, we could increase First Step's reach and visibility, in turn increasing the support to the most vulnerable children and families in Cambodia.
