About This Project:

In the village of Duk An Doang, Kampong Speu province, there is a small farming community where 5 families cultivate a plot of land together. They’ve built a wooden structure with cement floor to serve as a one room school house. Children from the surrounding area are invited to attend classes, taught by volunteer teachers. This is their only access to education, as there is no public school within reach. We at FCC have assisted this community for the past 3 years by presenting special classes and learning activities for the children, providing an annual Christmas/New Year’s celebration and channeling supplies to them as often as we can. At present there are 60 children divided into 2 groups of older and younger students. In order to provide a regular education program we aim to raise funding for a salary of $50 per month to employ a fulltime local teacher. Many of the children are so poor that they attend classes barefoot and dressed in dirty, ragged clothing. We would like to provide each child with a new shirt and pants/skirt. We will kick off the new school year with a special New Year celebration feast, presenting each child with the gift of new school clothes. This project will provide the children with basic education in Khmer literacy, basic math, and English.
