People Improvement Organization (PIO) was established in 2002 by Mrs Phymean Noun CNN Hero 2008 and World Children Prize winner 2015. PIO is a non political, non religious, non government organization. We serve over 1300 a day with free education, nutrition and vocational training programs to vulnerable children and young woman.
PIO has outreach centres at the former city dumpsite Stung Mean Chey, in the slum areas of Phnom Penh (Borei Keila) and on the outskirts of the city where the people from the slums are being relocated as the city is redeveloped (Borey Santepheap 2) We also run vocational training in dressmaking, computers, English & Mathematics for high school students, traditional Khmer dances and Art.
Through education and training, we aim to equip the children and young people to access regular jobs and become self supporting, improving their quality of life and that of their families.
PIO is run by Cambodians for Cambodians. We strive to develop our workforce and empower local people to become the leaders of the future.
