Children Are the Future

We are a small non-profit organization made entirely of volunteers who believe that giving every child and young adult education and the opportunity to develop their potential is the key to breaking the vicious circle of poverty. We believe in people-to-people partnerships of solidarity and rely entirely on the generosity of people like you, and the work of reliable partner non-profit organisations in the field to achieve our objectives. Any donation we receive contributes directly to offer a child or young adult a better future.


Thierry De Laet

Notre ami et membre de notre association Thierry nous a quitté,
Tous les volontaires de CAF et partenaires de CAF au Cambodge souhaitent exprimer leur tristesse pour la grande perte de notre cher ami et membre de CAF Thierry De Laet. Thierry nous a accompagné lors de nos missions sur le terrain au Cambodge chaque année depuis 2018. Ce fut un réel plaisir de partager avec lui les expériences, impressions et réflexions durant ces voyages mais aussi lors de nos périodes de retour à Bruxelles.
Thierry soutenait également Dina, une jeune fille brillante et très motivée au Cambodge, à suivre des études à l’Université pour devenir professeur d’anglais. Son soutien n’était pas seulement financier mais aussi personnel, puisqu’il la rencontrait lors de nos séjours sur le terrain.
Thierry, ton sens de l’humour, ton goût de la vie et ta présence nous manqueront énormément.

Our friend and CAF member Thierry has left us.
All CAF volunteers and partners of CAF in Cambodia want to express their sadness for the great loss of our dear friend and Member of CAF Thierry De Laet. Thierry has accompanied us during our field trips in Cambodia every year since 2018. It was a pleasure to share with him the experiences, impressions and thoughts during those trips but also during our periods back in Brussels.
Thierry has also been supporting Dina, a bright and highly motivated young girl in Cambodia, to follow her studies at University to become an English teacher. His support was not only financial but also personal, as he was meeting her during our field trips.
Thierry, we will miss immensely your sense of humour, your taste for life and your presence.

It was really inspiring and touching to share with you the very first virtual event of Children Are the Future on the occasion of its 20th anniversary. We have counted more than 300 connections in total to the event! And this includes connections from our local partners in India and Cambodia, despite the time difference. We also know that children and teenagers benefiting from CAF's support viewed this event from India. For those that could not join on Sunday, you still have the opportunity to view this event on our Youtube channel: www.youtube.com/channel/UCtSefqctXM8ejX2fe8KJ7vgWe thank you again for your interest and support. We take the opportunity to remind you of the friendly challenge we launched during the event: 30 new sponsors for our Wellbeing and Education Fund (WELED). We can count on two new sponsors from the last Sunday, but we still need to work to get 28 more! Thanks for spreading the word! You can find attached an explanation about this Fund in case you need more information. childrenarethefuture.eu/what-we-do/wellbeing-and-education-fund/Take care and hopefully see you soon in person. ...

Children are playing a carrom board game at Anbu Home (CET).The game of carrom is a tabletop game of Indian origin. It is an interesting combination of pool and air hockey, but highly accessible as an indoor family game, being compact and portable.The game features a square wooden board with four corner pockets and is played by flicking a “striker” disc with one’s fingers at the target pieces or carrom “men”. The goal of the game is to collect points by sinking the nine carrom “men” of your colour, plus the red “queen” piece, into the pockets before your opponent.The game features square wooden board with four corner pockets and is played by flicking a “striker” disc with one’s fingers at the target pieces or carrom “men”.

The children in the homes run by our partners in India make a very special on-line surprise birthday party for two of CAF volunteers they know well. What a nice Christmas and Birthday present! It warms really the hearts of volunteers to witness how strong bonds are being built between them, CAF's partners and the children. ... See MoreSee Less
