BENEFITING: Journeys Within Our Community
I am running the second-annual Angkor Wat Half-Marathon on August 9th to fund JWOC's library operations, so that our community of learners has the opportunity to learn, share and grow. Education changes everything. Help me provide critical funds to ensure that education is delivered to not just students, but to communities.
It takes more than an eager student to learn. It takes dedicated teachers, supportive family members and essential resources- like textbooks, desks, whiteboards. What does it take to transform learning? It takes more than one: it takes a community.
Here at Journeys Within Our Community (JWOC)'s learning center, our library is a safe, positive space where both young and adult learners can read books, do homework, research a topic online or hang out with friends. We also use the library as a space for community trainings: we lead workshops for teachers, hold trainings or meetings with parents and offer drop-in classes for all.
