"We rise by lifting others"
Your support changes lives!
Now more than ever young Cambodians – especially those in Siem Reap – need support, access to resources and skills that will give them an edge.
Siem Reap’s economy was built on tourism and the impacts of Covid have taken their toll. So many people lost jobs and are fighting to keep food on the table and a roof over their heads.
The job market in Siem Reap is incredibly competitive, with very few opportunities – especially for those who worked in hospitality.
It’s so important for young people to be building critical thinking skills, developing leadership skills, learning to be more creative and innovative and to think outside the square. Our programs aim to give them a competitive edge.

Go Fund Me
We’ve set a US $5,000 (AU $7,500) target for the Building Bridges fundraising campaign.
It will enable us to run a comprehensive range of programs until the end of 2023.
Some of these include:
Creative development – because creative thinking is not included in many school curriculums or family homes. Creativity and innovation are essential for any community or business that wants to move forward.
Job Readiness – you don’t know what you don’t know and many young Cambodians have no idea about the broad range of careers available or the various paths to reach them. Having a powerful CV and strong cover letter can make the difference in securing interviews and jobs.
Life skills – covering subjects from budgeting and time management to map reading and nutrition. Our research indicates this is one of the most impactful courses we can run.
Study and research skills – students increasingly need to process large quantities of information and determine its legitimacy and importance while research and analysis skills are desired in many work places to enable analysis and distribution of information.
Critical thinking – because the ability to identify and solve problems is a necessity and a characteristic desired by employers. According to the World Health Organization critical thinking, along with creative thinking, problem solving, communication and self-awareness are fundamental life skills.
