Due to the lack of schools, teachers and resources the level of education in rural Cambodia is of a poor standard. In order for the students to study the career of their choice they must pass Year 12. This is Stage I of the project. Kep Gardens has chosen three Year 12 students from poor socio-economic backgrounds who have proven through regular attendance and hard work at English classes that they will benefit from sponsorship to receive 9 months of private tutoring.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
The education standard is very poor at rural, local schools and their families cannot afford private lessons to ensure a Year 12 pass. Also, the students' dreams of pursuing careers are impossible as their families cannot support them for further studies. Without this, employment chances are very small.
How will this project solve this problem?
Passing Year 12 enables them to enter a University to study for a professional career. Stage II of the project then starts.
Potential Long Term Impact
Employment in their chosen careers of nursing and engineering will provide the students with a chance to improve their living standards and that of their families. Younger brothers and sisters will benefit by their employment as they will be able to provide them with a better education. It will also increase the number of professionals that this country, especially the rural areas, desperately needs.
