Saat School

Siem Reap is the main tourist attraction of Cambodia but is also one of the poorest provinces of the country, with 51.8% of the population living in  extreme poverty. Children in the villages around the center of Siem Reap are forced to abandon their school education right after the first years of  primary school when they are old enough to be used for work in the fields. These children not only do not acquire a basic education, but also lose the opportunity to obtain the knowledge that could help them find a better job. Even those lucky ones who have the opportunity to finish the school do not have the opportunity to improve their living conditions.

Apart from the tourism field the town has little to offer in the way of employment and the Cambodian school system does not provide the two subjects (english language and computer/ICT) necessary to find work in this area.

Since children from the poorest families can not afford to attend private schools, they have no possibly of obtaining jobs requiring this indispensable knowledge. Which means they have no hope of improving their conditions.

.For this reason our association decided to start the project Saat School in a village that is about 15 km from the center of Siem Reap. The school, which is right next to our Iron Workshop, provides free courses of English and Computer/ICT to over 300 poor children aged between 6 and 22 years, with the precise aim of conveying the knowledge and skills essential to ensure their better future.
