About This Project:
Per Family Care Cambodia: “Since 2002, Family Care Cambodia has offered quality educational programs, with a special emphasis on teaching English in the neglected rural areas. English skills facilitate higher learning, better career options and unlimited research opportunities. To enter college, or career training, a knowledge of English is required. Rural youth are disadvantaged without access to proper English tuition. At our village learning center in Kampong Speu we will open a special English class to prepare gifted, yet underprivileged 10th graders for college and/or gainful employment. The local high school director will help us select top students who will receive free afterschool tuition in English and career preparation, 5 days per week, 1.15 hours per day. The course will run for one full year.”
