Local Schools

85% of the population living in rural areas also means that a significant part of the Cambodian economy is informal. This also means that levying taxes to fund an extensive public education sector becomes a huge challenge. Community First helps the local schools in Sen Sok by providing the resources the teachers desperately need.

In addition to student kits, Community First also supports teachers with resources such as books, manuals, maps and other accessories commonly found in Western classrooms.  These are all too often non-existent in Cambodian schools. We look forward to expanding this educational support program, by providing in-depth training to teachers in collaboration with institutional partners.

As part of this program Community First also provides assistance to school libraries and aims and expanding their role as a public resource center for all villagers.
