The Center of Peace Orphanage is a Non-Profit, Christian organization that provides love, education, spiritual nurture, and a safe place for children at imminent risk of domestic abuse. We at the Center of Peace take seriously God’s mandate to respect, value, love and nurture children, and to seek their healing from trauma, and to prepare them for a life in the world where they can contribute to society and bear witness to the Kingdom of God through own transformation.
Center of Peace has 66 orphans/children at risk who live in the center, go to public school, receive tutoring, and love and spiritual nurture. These children have been given up to the orphanage by parents or grandparents who cannot care for them, and/or by relatives who see the children are undergoing physical abuse or serious neglect. Part of the 66 children, are 10 young adults who come from difficult family or life circumstances. They live at the House of Peace (HOP), a dormitory that is part of the ministry of the Center of Peace (COP). They study at the university, work, and help out at the orphanage. Some have come up through the orphanage and are transitioning into mainstream society.
Vision: We want to see the children and youth grow up to have a better future and a heart to serve our Lord as well as our nation.
“Linked above is the complete report on all accounting activities which are 100% transparent. You can see from the report that even a modest donation can make a big difference in the lives of these children. Become a foster parent and make monthly donations of just $30. for the care of the child you select or make one time donations to pay for the specified needs of the orphanage. Please help me care for these children.” – Yos Bopal
In Cambodia there are many families who are very poor and many are increasingly homeless due to land evictions. Domestic violence is still a common problem with fathers/husbands often abandoning their wives and children for other women. Our aims are to support these families by bringing their children into a loving home environment where these children are provided all their basic needs and education. By doing this we hope give many single parents the time to find work and recover, while their children are in our care.
