Our Story

The Bodia Group was created in 2015 when two Brisbane siblings witnessed the poverty, disadvantage and minimal opportunities facing Cambodian youth. Since then, they have worked to generate awareness in Brisbane and tangible results in Cambodia. By focusing on tertiary education and sustainable development initiatives, The Bodia Group has been able to support hundreds of poor teenagers to escape destitution. 

We believe in partnering with local organisations to deliver wider support across the country. In Phnom Penh, we have worked with the Save the Children Community Development Organisation (SCCDO) to support poor high schooling students by improving access to school and medical supplies, transport, uniforms and shelter. In Kampong Cham, we are partnered with the University of Management & Economics (UME) to offer full scholarships to poor students to gain higher education. From Brisbane, we are partnered with the Human Capital Project (HCP) to advance higher education goals and research and advance innovative development projects.
