ABOUT OUR SCHOOL
The school is based in Kratie province in the village of Orrusey which is about 10 minutes from Kratie town and the Mekong River. The school's director, Mr. Yuth, has lived in this area for several years, and over time he has watched children grow up with little or no English, and therefore, poor job prospects. He wanted to change this and offer the children of Kratie Province a better future. In January 2016, Mr. Yuth opened the School, built a house for the volunteers, and started lessons for underprivileged children from surrounding villages.
In Cambodia, the economy is mainly based on tourism and agriculture. However, in the public schools of Kratie, students aren't taught much English. Therefore, the goal is to enable them to learn English and gain some basic IT skills, which will give them better job prospects and a brighter future.
The school receives no financial support from the Government and instead relies solely on donations for improvements and volunteers for teaching.
Aside from the English school, Mr. Yuth runs an NGO that works closely with vulnerable groups, farmers, women, and children by implementing sustainable projects to improve their living conditions. This is a long-established organization which has been in operation since 1993. Volunteers might also be involved with work for this project as different needs arise.
