About This Project: 
Per Seametrey – “Our aim is to make quality education accessible to the less fortunate. If Cambodia were to truly develop and its citizens play a positive economic role and live a dignified life, we need to provide her children with quality education on par with the rest of the world. Otherwise, education given to the poor would just be a pretense to make one feel good about oneself.

The internet is a way to provide this quality education by opening up a whole world of knowledge and opportunities to our students.  In our modest computer room, we’d like to provide ESL (English as a Second Language), math, comprehension, and other academic games to our kids here through various online portals.  With this knowledge, they’ll practice their new skills with each other, teach those lacking them, and prepare for more complex learning down the road.”


About This Organization: Riverkids:
Per Seametrey – “Seametrey’s founder, Muoy You, was born into a very poor family. In 1975, the Khmer Rouge came to power, and Cambodia went to hell. Approximately 2 million people died from execution, starvation, diseases or land mines, among them Muoy’s own parents and siblings.

Muoy was lucky enough to be in France at that time, on scholarship from the French government. Her late husband and she lived in exile for 31 years. All that time they looked for an opportunity to come back to help rebuild the educational system.  In 1998, Muoy founded Seametrey, a Khmer acronym for Freedom, Civilization and Love. Since September 2007 it’s had a burgeoning primary section & recently an English language section for youth. The school’s policy is social integration. Parents pay according to their income. Some parents pay full fees, some pay 50%, others pay what they can, in cash, in kind or in service. The school has now 104 students aged 2 to 22.

Seametrey’s mission is to build human excellence to lift Cambodia out of corruption.  Its goal is to make quality education accessible to the less fortunate.  It works for a profound, structual change in Cambodia.”
