KHMER SMILE SCHOOL Education, Culture, and Development

Since 2013, CYA-Khmer Smile School was started to provide English course to local children and teenagers. By seeing the needs of the poor in the village, House Building project also started to build the house for the poor family, and donating some foods for hungry people in this rural community. We believe that through working together, we can make this community a better place and help our children to create their better future. Khmer Smile School aims to provide free access to informal education for the local youth, teenagers, and children in Spean Chreav community, Siem Reap province where their parents generate income to support families by being a tuk tuk driver, moto taxi, farmers, and fishermen as many of them are uneducated. In 2017, we plan to re - constructing our school building according to the needs of the students, establishing handicraft center, set up new library and computer center. CYA continues working to support poor families to fix their houses and build toilets. One special activity during the project is “Cambodian Real Life Experiencing.” We provide International volunteers chance to experience the living with local families and this year we also work with local community school which is 5mn walk from CYA-Khmer Smile school to help them improve school facility and education part.
