Summary

Our project will support over 150 Cambodian Children to achieve a better life through our school, Dolphin school of English. For 8 years, we've helped vulnerable and disadvantaged children from poor families in Kratie. By working with the registered NGO of 28 years, the Khmer Association for Development of Countryside (KAFDOC), DSE will continue to teach English, along with Maths, Khmer, agriculture studies, music, and IT to 150 students .

Challenge

The ability to speak English still represents hope for a better future and can help solve common issues. As a former interpreter for UNTAC said "you learn English to survive, it's language you acquire for your stomach" Very basic English is taught in statutory education trained in English teaching, this is not enough to enable young people to progress Many families pay for private English lessons but not all families can afford this which is the reason that Dolphin School was established.

Solution

The school's director, Mr. Yuth, has lived in Kratie for many years, has watched children grow up with little or no English, and therefore, poor job prospects. In January 2016, Mr. Yuth opened the School, built a house for international volunteers, and started lessons for underprivileged children to learn English. The school continues to grow helping more and more children learn English. The school receives no financial support from the Government and is reliant upon donations

Long-Term Impact

Education is critically important to the development of the country, in fact Cambodia's development strategy focuses on the young population as a major contributor to sustainable development and economic growth. Learning English is a high priority for many Cambodians as it is seen as the language of opportunity in this global community.
