  • Andy Andrew Sweeney, Founder

    "Children who live in impoverished communities in Cambodia and India are often unable to go to school. They never get the chance to break the cycle of poverty. Many children are sent to work, or to beg, because the families need every cent just to survive. There’s child labour, child prostitution and trafficking. SCOOP solves this problem differently to other NGOs. We build schools, we train teachers, and through the schools, we provide social services to help fix the issues that prevent children from attending school. We also take an innovative, progressive approach to fundraising. We then partner with local NGOs by providing support, funds and volunteers. Our approach works and we’d love you to join us."
