Star Impact Award 2015

Stars Impact Award 2015

In 2015, in recognition of the highest impact work with children, families and communities, we won a Stars Impact Award which represents a high standard in programming for underserved children. 

The award includes $50,000 USD plus capacity building support, and was presented during the annual Philanthropreneurship Forum held at the Palais des Congrès de Versailles, Paris, on Saturday 12th December 2015.

Mr Samleang Seila, APLE Cambodia’s Executive Director, said after receiving the award that “We’re proud and privileged to bring APLE up to the standard for winning this award and being globally recognized. This greatly signifies our priceless contribution to the safety of Cambodian children. However, we can’t celebrate our success here and say it’s finished. The war against child sexual exploitation is still a long way to fight.”
