Challenge

Education in Cambodia is affected by low levels of government investment, a lack of teacher support and school facilities (teachers often need two jobs to make ends meet), and inadequate graduation levels. These problems are compounded in rural areas which lack basic development such as electricity and piped water. Struggling rural families also face pressure to take their children out of school to work on family farms. This project improves the quality and scope of education in rural schools.

Solution

Providing an enriched and well rounded education with high levels of English, Sports, Library & Computer will equip students to have a better start in life. Siem Reap thrives on tourism and most jobs will need highly educated and English speaking candidates.

Long-Term Impact

Better jobs means better pay and a better standard of living for the family. It is important to educate the children so that they can be the brighter future for their community.
