A non-profit organization providing shelter, food and a quality education – with an emphasis on English language skills – to Cambodia’s garbage dump scavenger children. Presently ANDC supports 96 children, aged 7 – 21 years, who would otherwise not receive an education and have to scavenge the Steung Meanchey municipal garbage dump in Phnom Penh to help financially support their families.

ANDC operates two centers in Phnom Penh. These centers provide housing, dining, outdoor classrooms, outdoor play areas, and computer/internet facilities for the children. All children attend private schools in Phnom Penh (the public schools in Phnom Penh are over-crowded and inadequate) and receive supplemental English language education at the Centers. Through education ANDC hopes to break the poverty cycle for these kids. This video provides the full picture about ANDC (it takes a few minutes to buffer):
