Save Incapacity Teenagers (SIT) was founded in 1994 as a non denominational, non partisan and non political Cambodian Non Government Organization to address the problems facing teenagers caught in the cycle of poverty and unemployment. Its aims are to promote human rights and advocate for improved educational, health and working conditions for minors, a vulnerable group that is particularly exposed to exploitation. Young people (or teenagers), orphans and disabled children of poor households who presently live in rural areas have little or no opportunity to attend school, and then have no access to gainful employment. Trapped in this common place situation, they are easy targets for sexual trafficking and illegal child labor. It can also force them into a hopeless state whereby dangers lie in homelessness, narcotic addictions, prostitution and thieving. SIT believes these increasingly dangerous levels of poverty and unemployment are crucial matters that must be addressed immediately. SIT works to improve options and opportunities for a better future for Cambodia’s vulnerable young people, and thereby founding a stronger generation for this country. SIT is an independently local non-profit, non-partisan, and non-governmental organization, which regards no race, nationality and religion. It was founded on 25 November 1998 and was registered by the Ministry of Interior No 625 sCN on 03 August 1999. SIT is one of Star Kampuchea’s cooperating organizations, part of the Advocacy team and is an active member of ECPAT Cambodia, NGOCRC, HACC and the Child Welfare Group. SIT has currently been operating in Mukompoul district, Kandal province and in Pearaing district, Prey Veng province.
SIT works for the development of Cambodian teenagers and youths, in improving their educational, health and working conditions.
A country with peace and prosperity is a country with strong and well developed teenagers and their families
