About This Project:

In 2008, Family Care Cambodia established a small computer lab at the CCPCR rescue shelter, providing IT classes twice daily for youth survivors of human trafficking and abuse. They would like to upgrade the girls’ learning opportunities by also providing internet connection. This will enable them to learn how to use email, increase access to educational resources, & prepare them for higher education and/or entry into a competitive job market. The girls have identified their future career dreams to include such things as becoming a doctor, accountant, teacher, lawyer, photographer, and journalist. The better prepared they are for their futures, the less likely they will further fall prey to exploitation. This connection will also provide the shelter’s staff with access to needed resource materials and online communication.
