Keep Me in School - Year 1
Human Dev Index:#146 (Aus #5)
Our partner operates within the slums of Phnom Penh, engaging with families and children who have not yet entered formal schooling. They identify children eager to learn and accompany them throughout their entire educational journey, extending some to the university level and beyond. This initiative is an integral component of our partner’s Education Program, contributing to activity centres designed specifically to offer tutoring and remedial classes in Khmer and basic Mathematics. Additionally, these centres create an environment where children can dedicate time to their homework and engage in various classes, including English, Computer, Art, Music, and Sports.
Why support this
This program is not just about getting kids into school, but rather about taking the kids that society has written off and pushing them to excel, discovering their life's purpose, reaching their potential and growing in leadership. Significant time is dedicated to identifying kids from challenging backgrounds (slum living, street children, exploited or abandoned), guiding them into education, fostering a love for learning, and inspiring them to see a future beyond their wildest dreams.
