GETSET-GO NFP's Fundraiser:

Women's Learning Center - Siem Reap Cambodia

THE STORY:

We are raising funds to open a free, 24-hour women's learning center in Siem Reap, Cambodia. The learning center will serve as a hub from which we will conduct women's education and empowerment programs in the surrounding, rural areas as well.

As the gateway to the 8th Wonder of the World - Angkor Wat - there is a bustling tourism industry in Siem Reap. However, few Cambodians have the education they need to take advantage of the surplus of higher paying jobs.

And women, in particular, are stuck in subsistence jobs that require them to work for 11 or more hours per day, in which they might earn a dollar the entire day. This leaves them unable to attend schooling during regular hours.

By opening a free, 24-hour learning center that offers both guided and independent learning resources, girls and women will be able to learn the skills they need to get a much higher-paying job that can lift them and their families out of poverty.

For example, acquiring just one skill - learning to pronounce basic English correctly, will open up a range of tourism related jobs in restaurants and hotels, which pay up to 10x what they can make now.

Please help us raise at least $25,000 to open and operate the learning center for 1 year. We also plan to open another learning center in Battambang in 2011.
