CCF and eMoney partner on six-month school campaign

The Cambodian Children’s Fund (CCF) and local financial technology company eMoney announced a six-month fundraising partnership on November 26 to help support educational programmes at the CCF.

The campaign will be conducted through eMoney’s financial technology platform and the funds will be used to support science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) at the CCF school in Phnom Penh’s Stung Meanchey commune.

Scott Neeson, the founder and executive director of CCF, said the school in Stung Meanchey was for the education of poorest children in the commune. Through this partnership with eMoney, he hopes to raise additional funds to support children’s education.

“The partnership with eMoney will allow enhanced education for our students. This association also allows our CCF supporters an efficient way to follow our work and donate to our programme too,” Neeson said.

According to Neeson, the CCF has transformed the lives of the most impoverished, marginalised and neglected children in Cambodia through high quality education, leadership training and direct support programmes.

Through a donation portal on the eMoney app, eMoney users across Cambodia will be able to donate to the CCF. Donations may also be made in person at all eMoney stores throughout the country, according to a press release.

Neeson said the partnership would provide education for more than 2,000 of Cambodia’s most underprivileged children.

Pham Doan Cuong, eMoney’s CEO, said his company aims to influence the fields of financial and information technology as well as telecommunications, seeking unlimited access for everyone and everywhere.

“This partnership will make it easier for Cambodians to donate to CCF through the eMoney App and eMoney agent booths, which have more than 8,000 locations to be a part of Cambodia’s future development,” he said.

According to Doan Cuong, the CCF has broken cycles of poverty and abuse by building the capacity of the most disadvantaged and vulnerable communities.

Pham Doan Cuong said through the support of partnerships like this, CCF would be better able to deliver quality education and community support programmes in Stung Meanchey.
