Using Education as a Means to Escape Poverty

CEMSie Tirza Voss (RSM/IIMC) is a co-founder and board member of Stellar Child Care Organization (SCCO), an NGO that was established in 2012. SCCO supports underprivileged children and their families from Andong, a slum area in the outskirts of Phnom Penh, Cambodia. Only 1 out of 5 children there attends school, and most of them live in shacks with no walls, no roof, no bathroom, and no access to clean water. Tirza will be graduating from the CEMS MIM programme this year in St. Petersberg. CEMS recently interviewed Tirza on the work she is doing in Cambodia.

Can you tell us a bit more about SCCO and its activities?
