Summary

Teaching basic English skills to over 100 impoverished rural Cham children gives them tourism and urban job opportunities and access to university studies. It has also reduced public school dropout rates by increasing the value placed on education in general. We now support twelve of these students with full scholarships at university.

Challenge

The Cham community is an ethnic minority composed primarily of rice farmers in central Cambodia. Dropout rates from public school and limited education have limited job opportunities for average students. Also Cambodian university courses are taught almost exclusively in English, so English is necessary for many types of non-farming work there as well as any hope of a university education.

Solution

Basic English conversation, reading, grammar and writing are taught to anyone who wishes to learn and no fees are charged. Full university tuition, book expenses and housing are provided for the most impoverished but scholastically talented boy and girl graduating high school every year. We now have twelve university students whom our donors support.

Long-Term Impact

Not only will individuals gain better jobs and thus income for themselves and their families, but their minority community will achieve better integration and advanced standing in Cambodia. Also university educated members of this community will be able to advocate for minority rights and will work to further the development of their own community.
