CfC is working to raise $25,000 to build an early education school in Cambodia. 50% of the project has already been funded.
If you would like to give to this cause, you may click on the donate button above to visit our online donation page.
Information on the project is given below. The Cambodia Project: The project site is in the Meanchey District, one hour south of the capital city of Phnom Phen. The disrict has no permanent kindergarten options besides the two temporary classrooms on the Lveatay campus that provide cramped space for around fifty children. With the new school building CfC is going to build, kindergarden enrollment will increase to between 150 and 200.
The Impact: By enrolling children in pre-primary school, they are far more likely to go on to complete primary school and perform better on national exams. This new kindergarten will provide a high quality facility for learning to prepare children for primary school. CfC's local partner, STEP (Supplementary Teaching Education Program), will be running the school and recruting teachers. STEP specializes in programs that encourage future educational opportunities, foster improved children’s health, and promote gender equality.
