Transforming Lives

EPC seeks opportunities to collaborate with all other stakeholders to adapt and replicate our project activities throughout Cambodia.

All of EPC’s projects are intended to facilitate or provide formal and informal education programmes and lifelong learning that will assist children and young persons with disabilities to achieve self-sustaining employment.

EPC’s primary beneficiaries are children and young people with disabilities throughout Cambodia.

Our clients are

  • Aged between 10 and 17, eligible for support to attend government schools
  • Young persons aged between 18 and 35 eligible for tertiary education, vocational training and employment.

EPC also supports these young peoples’ families by providing livelihood support.

EPC establishes a job searching service together with job clubs to support young job seekers with disabilities to find employment.

The aim is to increase the income and employment opportunities for disadvantaged young women and men with disabilities, enabling them to improve their living conditions through their own efforts as well as promoting a more inclusive society.

This project will support young persons with disabilities to access job coaching, counselling and training to enable and equip them to secure employment.
