Summary

Wildlife Alliance's Kouprey Express, Mobile Education Unit tours the Cambodian countryside educating children and families on the values of conservation with engaging tools and field trips.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Schools in Cambodia, while improving, continue to fail to educate a significant segment of the rural population. The adult literacy rate is only around 78 percent and women in particular are unlikely to receive a formal education. As Cambodia's population grows, pressure on the country's limited resources will continue to grow. Therefore, preserving the rich environmental heritage in Cambodia will require a well-rounded approach, including ensuring children learn about their environment.

How will this project solve this problem?

The Kouprey Express travels around the Southern Cardamom region instructing school children and families on the values of conservation. It also trains and provides school supplies to teachers and takes students on educational field trips.

Potential Long Term Impact

Since the Kouprey Express began, more than 50,000 children and adults have benefited directly from the program, raising a generation of Cambodian youth with a committment to preserving and protecting their unique environment for the future.
