SPONSOR A SCHOOL
CHANGE A COMMUNITY
For $1000 a month, you can transform a school and change a community.
A CCT supported school is a beacon of light in a poor, Cambodian village. When you transform a school, you transform the lives of hundreds of children and their families.
A supported school is a centre of new life in the community – it represents the parent’s hopes and dreams for their children and the only realistic stepping stone out of poverty. Many parents have had limited education and have been totally disempowered from any form of engagement in their children’s education in the past. Because many parents are illiterate they do not feel they can have any say in education – we try to overcome that through ongoing community meetings and consultation.
We encourage their ongoing involvement with the school, we consult with parents about what they want for their children and we convince them that their child’s education is a good investment; better than keeping the children at home to work in the fields. The parents and wider community are an important part of the school ecosystem, as much as the school is central to the community.
We currently support twelve primary schools, four secondary schools and two teacher’s training colleges in the Takeo and Kampot provinces of Cambodia. There are many unsupported schools that we could transform with your help.
