About This Project: 
Per FCC – “This year, we were able to open our 3rd in-house education program in a rural public primary school in Siem Reap. Thanks to funding from Mira Scholars in 2013 that enabled us to upgrade computers at another project site, we moved 20 very old PC’s over to this school to get the program started. Each day 240 primary school students are learning typing, Microsoft Word and excel in our new IT lab! We urgently need to upgrade the 15 oldest models. We can do this for $200 per PC/flat screen monitor and thus continue to provide these rural kids with the chance of a lifetime!”


About This Organization: 
Per FCC – “FCC is recognized by the Cambodian government with MOUs from Ministries of Foreign Affairs, and Education, Youth, and Sports.  Our activities include: translation, production and distribution of children’s books, and assisting a shelter for minor girls rescued from sexual exploitation and domestic violence.  We provide English, computer and art classes; rice and cooking gas monthly, and weaving looms and sewing machines for vocational training.  We built and maintain a second story with bedrooms and lavatories.  At a primary school in Siem Reap, we built and furnished an IT lab, teacher’s office, 3-classroom school building and student lavatories.  300+ students benefit from our English, computer and sports training.  60 students benefit from our assisting a village school.  We operate a hostel for 20 rural boarding students earning their post graduate degrees.  We also help with the annual Cambodian Special Olympic Games.”
