Carpets For Communities-BVRC

Carpets for Communities (CfC) provides immediate intervention to children at risk of child labour and human trafficking. This is done by empowering mothers to earn an income through the production of hand-made, eco-friendly rugs and the development of micro-enterprises. CfC works in the Poipet Commune, Cambodia on the Thailand border. Here, many children are at risk of human trafficking and being sold into prostitution as they are on the streets begging or working to support their family. Equally important, by working and begging they are deprived of an education that would otherwise improve their long-term livelihoods. This ultimately has them trapped in a cycle of poverty that CfC aims to break by empowering the mothers and their families.
