The plans for the future and the new COLT community centre mean that we will be offering a different kind of help and support than we have been doing for the past ten years. As the emphasis in the future will be more on temporary care of children and support for their families we have decided, after consultation with governmental organisations, to change the name slightly. From now on the T in COLT stands for Temporary-care. The full name is now Cambodian Organization for Living and Temporary-care. The changes can be seen in our new logo.
When a child is in our temporary care efforts will be made, together with the whole family, to improve those living conditions that have made it necessary to take the child into care. These could include education of the child and parents, counselling, medical and psychological help.
