About this Project:
Since 2002, Family Care Cambodia has offered quality educational programs, with a special emphasis on teaching computer to children in rural areas. IT skills facilitate higher learning, better career options and unlimited research opportunities. To meet this need we have opened a new Learning Center in Siem Reap; with an IT lab that can accommodate 25 students at a time. 300 students have already enrolled. Our current PCs, donated from a local business, are too outdated to support the educational software needed for a quality curriculum. We hope to upgrade the equipment by purchasing 25 sets with higher specifications.  Students who finish the course will have mastered typing in English and Khmer, Microsoft Word, Excel, Power-Point and Photoshop. This will increase their income earning potential by at least 50%.
