Mith Samlanh("Friends" in English) is a local organization working with marginalized children/youth, their families and their communities to build their futures and to develop creative projects that effectively support the children to become in independent and productive members of the community.

Mith Samlanh was established in August 1994 as a non-religious organization working with street children in Phnom Penh. The non-governmental organization (NGO) was established in response to the needs of marginalized children/youth, their families and their communities. The projects of Mith Samlanh aim to facilitate the children's social reintegration into their families, the public school system, the workplace, and their culture.

From its brightly painted center behind Friends the Restaurant, Mith Samlanh offers food, shelter, medical care, training and educational facilities for over 1,800 homeless, vulnerable or abandoned children each day.
