Project manager information systems at Pour un Sourire d’Enfant (For a Child’s Smile)

About PSE :

Pour un sourire d’Enfant (PSE)- For a child’s smile is a non political, non-confessional, independant and non-profit organization founded by Christian and Marie-France des Pallières in 1995. Its mission is to help children escape from destitution and lead them to decent, skilled and well-paid jobs. Six main programs, adapted to the needs of the children, have been developed: food, health, protection, education and schooling, vocational training and support to the families. The association stands out for the priority given to the answer to the needs of the children as it occurs rather than a desire for constant growth.

The funding of its program mainly relies on private donations and child sponsorship ( covering 70% of the cost of the social missions), completed by corporate patronage. More than 600 Cambodian staffs ( mainly in Phnom Penh), are managing the different programs in the field, representing 95% of the workforce.6 staffs at the headquarters in France are completing the team. These enables PSE to limit its operational costs at 10% of its global costs. 300 volunteers in different countries are actively working on making the organization known, on fundraising donations and sponsorships. In 2000, PSE received the French human rights prize by the French Republic completed in 2018 by the awarding of the IEAS label attesting to the quality of governance, financial management and efficiency of action of associations and foundations.
