Mission

Public Education in Cambodia faces great challenges and it often fails to provide skills that are useful to access job market. Low-income youth, especially from rural areas, which can't afford private education, doesn't really have the choice to attend high schools or Universities or to choose their own career paths. Salariin Kampuchea is a Cambodian NGO that provides free extra-curriculum English, Computer and Life skills courses to poorest children and young people of Siem Reap province and the rural areas. Siem Reap is the number one tourist destination in Cambodia but also one of the poorest regions in the country, with 51.8% of the population living in poverty. Outside of the tourism sector, Siem Reap offers few economic prospects. The goal of our program is to equip Cambodian youth with the educational tools that will give them the opportunity to choose their own career path, enhancing their lives through education. Our vision is a Cambodia where also low-income young people have access to the opportunities that will enable them to rise out of poverty. Results Our program: increases the retention of pupils at both primary and secondary level. increases the enrollment to secondary-level education and Universities assures good quality job placements for our students. These students wouldn't have enrolled in Universities if they hadn't met SK. In our 2009 outgoing class of 60 students: 50% went on to attend vocational training or study at High School or University. 25% have found a job, using their English skills.

Programs

The program is designed to impact the lower income youth of Siem Reap and of Chreav Commune. All our children are enrolled in Public schools and we sign an agreement with families to assure that they will continue to attend school during the whole duration of our program. This constitutes an incentive for reducing dropouts in primary school. Older students are encouraged to pursue volunteer activities within their communities, to spread they're knowledge and better amplify the impact. Program activities are: 1. English Language Courses From beginner to intermediate, SK provides a structured English language curriculum with classes organized by skill level. A qualified English teacher and a native speaker volunteer run each class. 2. Computer Classes Conceived to provide students with basic computer knowledge that can be used in most office environments (i.e. word processing, spread sheets and presentation software as well as Internet and e-mails). 3. Life skills program This program has been conceived to help students to identify and pursue their career paths and to increase their social awareness about their role in society and their status as citizens. The course has been divided into a Job training course and a Social education class. - Job training focuses on how to write a CV, a letter of motivation, how to apply and to manage the interview, careers options, job opportunities in Siem Reap and in Cambodia, further Education, Universities options etc. - Social education class is conceived to help the students to acquire self-esteem and critical thinking. Through workshops and group works on communication and capacity building, we want students to acquire basic skills to be successful both in personal and in professional life. 4. Libraries - Open to everyone to read books, play games, use computers 5. Scholarships - To enable our students to successfully complete their education
