Impacted Last Year
Established in September of 2019, our Learning & Mentoring Center in Phnom Penh, Cambodia serves a community that is in great need. According to the World Bank, around 4.5 million people in Cambodia live at or near the poverty line. That’s approximately 35% of the country’s population.
When we first opened our doors in Cambodia, 84 students registered in courses covering English, basic computer skills, graphic design, sales/customer service, and personal leadership. Courses are given daily over a 15-week period, with three semesters annually.
Upon graduation, students that complete the program will have greater opportunities for job placement and business creation. They will also have a better understanding of how to decrease personal consumer debt while increasing self-reliance.
We are eternally grateful for the support of Matt and Allison Smith for helping fund the Learning & Mentoring Center in Cambodia. They have supported an orphanage in this region for several years. Now, this Learning & Mentoring Center will help parents and young adults further their opportunities for employment and business growth.
