Volunteering Activities


What We Need

Our curriculum is based on the Singapore Ministry of Education's 'Nurturing Early Learners' syllabus. We teach in English, though our students also receive additional instruction in their mother tongue language (Khmer). We currently have 62 students enrolled in the afternoon kindergarten program and over 300 students on our waiting list, ready to enrol in the core primary program.

We serve the children from within our village along with the surrounding villages here in Kep.

We're changing the face and the standards of rural education, providing that a school educating children living in rural poverty can have the same resources, quality teachers, and modern facilities as private education.
