About The Cause
“My Grandfather’s School Project” is an education initiative based in Kralanh District, Cambodia, started by the youth travel and impact organization Camp Cambodia. In 2013, the school was closed due to lack of funds. This left 250 children without a place to get an education and be kids. Enter Camp Cambodia, who reopened the school with the help from locals in the region along with volunteers from around the world.
At the moment the school employs teachers on a monthly basis, who educate the local children. However, they strive to provide English classes, as it’s a very important skill to have in such a tourist driven area. By having access to technology and equipment such as projectors, screens, computers and tablets, the teachers will be able to really improve the quality of education provided, with access to significantly more resources. Not only this, but the organizations volunteers from all over the world, will then be able to provide free interactive English classes to the children on a weekly basis from remote locations, giving them a significant advantage in their educational development. The outcomes of this simple action can be incredible!
Increased access to learning resources
Improved /more engaging teaching methods
Access to live interactive English classes from global volunteers
Access to the Belouga network to connect and collaborate with the world
As the school is in such a remote area it will make a vital positive impact. Many young adults in the area are forced to travel to neighboring countries, seeking employment, where they are often exploited while working in unsafe environments. We hope that improving education will deter this and provide a significant advantage when finding employment within Cambodia. By providing these simple tools to the school will not only have an impact in the classroom, but greatly impact the overall lifestyle of the locals in this region.
