About this Project:

From our partner school —

For over a decade we have run extracurricular classes at our school in Siem Reap. Thousands of rural children, from 3rd to 6th grade have benefited from our free English and Computer training. During the school lockdowns due to the Covid crisis, school was sealed off in a quarantine zone for a time, and later used as a treatment center. During those months, we were unable to enter the school or tend to our classrooms and equipment. As soon as schools reopened, we did a thorough check and testing of all of our equipment. Many of our 2nd hand PCs and monitors were broken and in need of replacing. We would like to request a small grant to upgrade 17 computer/monitor units so we can run our classes at full capacity. We have 200 children enrolled and eager to resume their computer studies.

Donations of all sizes are warmly welcomed.

We operate a hostel for 20 rural boarding students earning their post graduate degrees. We also help with the annual Cambodian Special Olympic Games.
