Gift the gift of education to children in Cambodia.
The state school system in Cambodia is beset by a lack of investment, poor facilities, limited resources and under-trained teachers. As the youth population increases and these resources are stretched more and more thinly on the ground, those with the least are left behind as the well-off can afford extra tuition.
Journeys Within Our Community (JWOC) helps fill current gaps in the Cambodian educational system by offering free English, Computer and extra-curricular classes to over 850 individuals living in and around Siem Reap, Cambodia. By providing this service to Cambodian youth, JWOC gives children an opportunity to learn valuable skills in a safe and friendly environment, breaking the cycle of poverty. Despite the fact that a year's worth of textbooks costs only ten dollars and the high demand for such classes, books are in short supply.
You can help. Just $10 provides a child with enough English language textbooks to last an entire year.
Update from the Field
Khung Votty is a twelve-year-old boy who has benefitted from Journeys Within Our Communities Free Classes program. He has been learning English at JWOC for two years now and his English has vastly improved. He is now confident enough in his skills to have conversation with staff in English. His favorite subject is math and he hopes to become an accountant one day. He feels incredibly grateful to be able to learn English through JWOC's Free Classes program. With your continued support, we can help more children just like Khung!
JWOC develops projects in Southeast Asia that reduce poverty levels, increase educational and economic opportunities, and empower recipients and supporters, inspiring ongoing social change.
