What we do
Our centre operates an English Language school that helps hundreds of young Khmer. With the influx of tourism and international trade, there is great enthusiasm to learn foreign languages; thus, a good grasp of English means access to better jobs and ultimately a better future. We also provide education on Khmer traditional art, charity Activity and environmental activity’s. We also hope to open an infirmary of Buddhism to help with the sick and the old.

Why we need your help
Currently our centre has only volunteer Khmer teachers working part time. Our goal is to raise enough funds to employee full time teachers, thus ensuring the students will receive a more consistent and reliable education. With a donation as little as $3 a month you can invest in a better future and give the students the opportunity to achieve a brighter and more independent life. Just $90 per month pays for a full time local teacher. We have 5 classrooms that need teachers each day. We also need foreigners that speak excellent English to teach our students proper English pronunciation and Grammar.
