Child Labour
The continuous civil war in Cambodia has caused most children to lose their parents and they have to find their own food to live. Some joined the army, some became street children and had to collect plastic bags to sell to plastic enterprises. Some became robbers etc., and the government doesn't care at all about these problems.

Some local youth organizations and NGOs try their best to find out good ways to help these children by teaching them skills (fixing cars or motorbikes, sewing etc.) and educating them. Finally, those children can find jobs to support their living. But what those organizations have done can help only a small part of the problem. The funding from the organizations is limited and most of the children get use to their free living (they don't want to live under control).
