GLobal impact



Cambodia has greatly suffered the effects of genocide. During the 5 year reign of Pol Pot and Khmer Rouge, nearly 2 million Cambodians died from execution, forced hardships or starvation. The educated class was specifically targeted. During the Khmer Rouge regime, nearly the entire educated class was murdered. More than 2 decades later, the education system has not yet fully recovered from the devastation of this genocide. Cambodia has been left with a very young population (almost half the population under 18) and 9% of the country's children are orphans. 

We strengthen existing organisations and schools by training their staff annually to increase their effectiveness and quality of service delivery. Over the last couple of years, HOPE has delivered training on quality teaching, secondary science, First Aid English to teachers from 20+ Christian schools and hundreds of teachers across Cambodia. 



Whilst in Cambodia volunteers will connect and engage with our key partners on the ground. Volunteer teams will: 
  • Run three-day conferences that will see over 160 Primary and High school teachers and head teachers trained and upskilled in their roles  
  • Work with local schools to observe their current teaching practice and provide practical feedback and training
  • Train local groups of women in areas of reproductive health and sanitation 
  • Visit iconic Angkor Wat Temple
