Learning to speak and read English creates more and better paid employment opportunities for students upon leaving either secondary school or University. A sound knowledge of English is particularly important in the expanding tourism and business sectors.
Growing Cambodia has no administration costs. Every cent raised through fundraising, donations and other sources of funds go directly to the schools and communities in Cambodia.
Growing Cambodia now supports three Non Government Organisation (NGO) schools where English is being taught, the original schools that commenced in 2012 being located at Kok Beng and Oroluos villages. The third school at Beng village, also near Siem Reap, officially opened on 6 June 2016.
In 2017 we began supporting a fourth school by paying for two local teachers to teach English at the Koy Meng Government Primary school. In 2023 a third teacher was employed to teach English to the students next door at the Koy Meng Government Secondary school.
