Summary

This "Sponsor a Child's Education" Programme will enable 70 underprivileged children aged 4 to 16 years old to learn English at the English Training Project Centre (ETPC) run by OBCR Cambodia. ETPC provides a platform for young Cambodian children to learn the English language and widen their knowledge beyond the conventional curriculum, enabling them to be more equipped to pursue higher education or gain employment in the future.

Challenge

The ETPC students come from families of farmers who earn only about US$150 per month from growing rice. Many children are forced to leave school at 14 years old to work in the rice fields or join one of the many factories around the village to help support their families.To break this cycle, ETPC works at educating these children and their parents on making better choices about the future by inspiring them to dream and think big through the opportunity to learn English language.

Solution

Parents are the major decision makers of their child's future. Educating the children educates the parents about the importance of striving to keep their children in school. ETPC provides the platform for the children and their families to realise the value of education in lifting them out of poverty.

Long-Term Impact

Tertiary education is getting more competitive in Cambodia. By possessing English language skills, these children gain much better chances of securing placements in University. Currently, ETPC has 150 children in 5 classes and the centre continuously receives more applications than it can support. Therefore, monies raised by this funding campaign will help expand the school's capacity to accommodate more children, recruit more teachers and train new and existing teachers.
