COVID-19 Emergency Fundraising
Can you imagine no visitors at Angkor Wat? Can you imagine what this means for so many of our students who are dependent on tourism for their jobs? Many young Cambodians, including a high percentage of JWOC students, have lost their jobs in the past month and are being forced to leave the city as they can no longer afford food and rent. The loss in tourism has also had a major impact on our ability to raise funds for our students and programs. Can you please help us right now with a donation? Every donation, big or small, will help our students get through this challenging time. Please click on the donate button below or to the side to help.
We award scholarships that enable gifted youth from low-income families to attend University in Siem Reap by paying for their tuition fees and textbooks. Additionally, at JWOC’s purpose-built Learning Center, we focus on developing soft skills and building capacity to overcome the challenges youth may face in reaching their goals. We also provide a platform for motivated change-makers to tackle social issues to improve their confidence and increase their level of civic engagement.
Better Futures Program
We give current high school students and those who have recently graduated the guidance they need to set or reach their future goals.Through a tailored curriculum of English, Computer, Life Skills, Career Guidance and Youth Leadership, the students graduate from the program equipped with the skills, knowledge and motivation needed to succeed and make informed decisions about whether they want to pursue further education, vocational training, or work.
