What is Children for Better Future?

Children for Better Future (CBF) is a Cambodian non-governmental organization. We were established in 2003 and became registered with the Ministry of Interior in 2009. (Registration No 2240).

The Happy School is CBF’s core program. The Happy School receives funding from Australian based organisation ACE (Act Change Educate), from volunteers and other individual donors. Currently, The Happy School provides disadvantaged children with free primary education and vocational training. In addition, those vulnerable children also have an opportunity to continue into secondary education through our State School program or gain experience of working in the hotel industry. Finally, the Happy School provides rice packages to families as a way of encouraging their children to attend school regularly.

What do we do?

Local Needs

Our local team continuously assesses the needs of the community around the happy school.


We give our time to teach our students English and Computers and we bring our experience to managing the Happy School program.


Together with a group of qualified teachers and volunteers, we teach the students of Happy School English, IT, Maths, Khmer (official Cambodian language) and life skills.


We seek and gather voluntary financial contributions by engaging individuals, businesses and governmental agencies to support the students of the Happy School.
