Mith Samlanh / Friends assists homeless and vulnerable street children and adolescents, including their families, who are at high risk of exploitation and physical and emotional abuse, especially through forced commercial sex and violence in the streets. In order to increase Mith Samlanh’s sustainability and to provide former street youth more opportunities for their futures, Mith Samlanh runs a range of income generating activities. They include: training businesses where students from the Vocational Training Center gain experience in a real business environment; social businesses where parents are provided with income generation support so that they can send their children to school rather than to work in the streets. These activities are also income generation ventures with profits used to fund other projects and contribute to the purchase of Mith Samlanh’s main center.
