Project Details

Family Care Cambodia (FCC) is a non-profit, faith-based organization dedicated to improving education and enhancing the quality of life for all Cambodian children.

- Who we are?

Family Care Cambodia (FCC) is a non-profit, faith-based organization founded and directed by Alex and Ann Soldner, in 2002.  We were legally recognized by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in 2006; the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports in 2009, and the Council for the Development of Cambodia in 2009.

- Where we work?

We have worked throughout Cambodia, but our main programs are in Phnom Penh, Siem Reap, Kampong Speu and Kratie provinces. Cambodia is a poor, but fast developing nation so infrastructure is basic. There are decent roads to each of our main project locations and safe accommodations available. The weather is warm all year round with 2 main seasons- Wet and Dry. Clean drinking water is readily available. Keeping a high standard for personal hygiene is recommended to avoid tropical diseases. 

- Our history

Our story begins in 2002 when we, Alex & Ann Soldner, responded to a need for qualified and committed volunteers to help in the rebuilding and recovery of Cambodia. Firm believers in the adage that “the best ability is availability”, we have sought to invest our time, resources, experience and talents to help any situation or person, as best we can.

The parents of 8 children (and now 5 grandchildren), we had lived and worked in Southeast Asia for the over 35 years in such countries as India, the Philippines, Hong Kong, Thailand and Cambodia. During that time we’ve helped established community homeschooling cooperatives, participated in disaster relief for flood victims, organized teacher trainings and seminars, developed curriculums and led English camps and courses for rural students. Ann served as a natural labor coach, assisting many women through healthy, natural childbirths, and also developed a program to prepare abandoned preschool children for adoption abroad, eliminating the main causes of reactive attachment disorder and earning an award from the Thai Prime Minister.         

Since coming to Cambodia, our heart has always been “for the children” and our desire has been to provide the same standard of love, nurturing and development to the children and young people we work with, as we would want our own children to receive. 

- Our mission/vision

Vision: A world in which all children are nurtured and valued, and given the chance to discover and develop their unique gifts, regardless of nationality, culture or economic status.

Mission: To help children develop their full potential in a loving and nurturing environment; To strengthen and encourage parents, teachers and caregivers and to equip them with the resources for the job.

- Our goals :

Our goal is to build up children and strengthen families. We do this by assisting in childhood trauma recovery, providing opportunities for early education, bi-lingual training, creative arts, sports and IT skills training, and by equipping parents, teachers and caregivers with the skills and resources they need to accomplish their important tasks.

- Who are we looking for?:

We are looking for volunteers who are culturally adaptable and enthusiastic about educating children and working closely with local Cambodian families, teachers and students. An outgoing, friendly nature is important, as is respect for the local laws and customs. Candidates should be in good health both physically and mentally. Those who have background experience or training in teaching, social work, early education, sports training for children, curriculum development, IT teaching, community service or agriculture will find meaningful ways to put their skills to work. Those who have different work backgrounds, but who are committed and willing to get involved with teaching and training children and youth may also apply.

Social Impact

Since its inception, Family Care Cambodia has provided training to hundreds of teachers, parents and social workers through our various programs. More than 2000 rural primary school children have directly benefited from our English and IT classes. 

Primary school libraries in remote districts and villages have received thousands of brightly illustrated, children’s storybooks with Khmer and English text. 

Through our scholarship and mentoring programs we have helped over 100 youth to obtain vocational training, high school and college degrees, find meaningful job placement and receive character building skills to equip them for a successful future. 

Through our trauma-informed care, we have personally assisted more than 2000 young women rescued from abuse and human trafficking, to full healing and recovery.

We are actively involved in Cambodia’s NGO community through networking groups,  and work closely with the Cambodian Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports, as well as the Cambodian National Special Olympics Committee.
