Name change - we are now FEEDING DREAMS (UK)
Schools for Children of Cambodia (SCC) originally worked with three schools then later three partner NGOs based in Cambodia. However, over the past year it has become more evident that much of the good work we support is done through Feeding Dreams based in Siem Reap. AFESIP and VDCA are both linked to charities more suited to their current programmes. Our name is no longer relevant to the partner agencies we work with in Cambodia. We have changed our name (officially with Charity Commission approval) from Schools for Children of Cambodia to Feeding Dreams (UK) to better reflect the work we do. Feeding Dreams (Cambodia) has a member of staff based in the UK who will work with us to maximise donations. We believe that this move is in the best interests of the maximum number of children in Cambodia.
