Operations Enfants du Cambodge

Cambodia starts bearing poisoning influence from outside from 1945. From 1947, ideological combined with imperialist strategies divides Cambodia in conflicting segments, nationalists, communists, revolutionists and liberalists working for common goal, independence of the country. From November 1953 to October 1970, living in independent period, Cambodian people have relaxed time with development effort. From Oct 1970 to March 1992, Cambodia, caused by internal and external factors, experiences a successive change from Kingdom of Cambodia to Khmer Republic from October 1970, then to Democratic Kampuchea from 1976, to People's Republic of Kampuchea from January 1979, to State of Cambodia from May 1989. The armed conflict results in new solution sponsored from 15 Mar 1992 to 30 Jun 1993 by United Nations Transitional Authority in Cambodia (UNTAC), which organizes general democratic election restoring new Kingdom of Cambodia from 24 September 1993. In consequence new Cambodian Constitution. appears where in article 31 states that: “The Kingdom of Cambodia shall recognize and respect human rights as stipulated in the United Nations Charter, the Universal Declaration of Human rights, the covenants and conventions related to human rights, women’s and children’s rights. Every Khmer citizen shall be equal before the law, enjoying the same rights, freedom and fulfilling the same obligations regardless of race, color, sex, language, religious belief, political tendency, birth origin, social status, wealth or other status. The exercise of personal rights and freedom by any individual shall not adversely affect the rights and freedom of others. The exercise of such rights and freedom shall be in accordance with the law”. The UN General Assembly in its 44th meeting adopted without vote on 23 March 2011 the following appeal in paragraph 2: Invites Governments, agencies and organizations of the United Nations system and intergovernmental and non-governmental organizations to intensify their efforts to disseminate the Declaration and to promote universal respect and understanding there effort, and requests the Secretary-General to include the text of the Declaration in the next edition of Human Rights: A compilation of International Instruments.”

Children and Young Workers
As a fundamental principle, we do not employ children or support the use of child labor. We do encourage the creation of educational, training or apprenticeship programs tied to formal education for young people in conformity with CRC article 24 about health and health service and article 28 about education.
Freedom of Engagement
We believe that people should work because they want or need to, not because they are forced to do so. We prohibit the use of prison labor, forcibly indentured labor, bonded labor, slavery, or servitude
Equality of Opportunity
We recognize, respect, and embrace the cultural differences found in the worldwide marketplace. Our workplace is a meritocracy where our goal is to attract, develop, promote, and retain the best people from all cultures and segments of the population, based on ability. We have zero tolerance for discrimination or harassment of any kind in respecting UDHR, article 23-Right to Desirable Work and Join Trade Union and article 25-Right to Adequate Living Standard.
We ensure that compensation meets or exceeds the legal minimums and is competitive with general standards. Our compensation philosophy is clearly communicated to employees and is in full compliance with all applicable laws.

Freedom of Association
We recognize and respect the freedom of individual OEC to join, or refrain from joining, legally authorized associations or organizations, right stated in UDHR, article 20-Right to Peaceful Assembly.

Relationships with Indigenous People
Within the framework of our Values, we respect the cultures, customs and values of the people in communities where we operate and take into account their needs, concerns, and aspirations

In our work environment, we respect human rights primarily by providing safe and healthy working conditions for our staff and ensuring non-discrimination in human resource practices. In our communities, we respect human rights by contributing our time to the well-being of the communities in which we operate and in striving to do no harm. We believe we influence the standards of conduct in these communities by living our values.

Within our operations, we strive to implement our human rights policy while operating in many diverse locations. We are working with local traditional communities in improving equal access to good quality of education for children in remote areas and children with disabilities to eliminate discrimination in education; empowering poor people, people with disabilities and land mine survivors by developing reflective thinking and analytical capabilities to improve life standing with acquisition of basic living needs, such as clean water, health care, shelter and income generating, necessary for a quality of life full of dignity. OEC strives to organize repeatedly discussion and analysis of the above statement for effective practice and fruitful dissemination to build culture of Human Rights.
