Founded in 1991, Enfants d'Asie (Children of Asia), a non-partisan organization without religious affiliation, cares for orphans and children in distress in Asia and the Southeast. The organization intervenes in fifty centers (children villages, schools, homes and orphanages) in Cambodia, Laos, the Philippines and Vietnam.
The organization ensures the essential needs (nutrition, lodging, medical care and prevention, physical affection) of underprivileged children in order to allow them to construct a better future: we provide schooling, professional education, educational grants, technical classes, French and English lessons, micro-financing, and other vital services.
Today, thanks to sponsors and donors, the organization aids nearly 10,000 children through a group of programs, ensuring overall care for the world's most fragile citizens.
