Information, background, history, aim, plans of this project

Cambodia lost 2 generations in 4+ years. Societal norms were destroyed. Education systems wrecked. These 4+ years of genocide were followed by 15 of Vietnamese Communist Occupation. Today it is a Republic… Hungry for progress, its doors open to Development and to the Gospel. She will speak of the 2 generations lost in 4+ years of Pol Pot madness, destroyed societal systems, and the renewal republican years fraught with greed and corruption. Whither Cambodia?

Today there are Opportunities to show that Christians care: Through social work, medical teams and most importantly:  EDUCATION. Today there are still many opportunities to reach out and help the poor, deprived, orphaned and at-risk children in this, one of the poorest of the Indo-China countries, a country which is still open to the Gospel.

With a few friends they looked into setting up a Christian University with the initial aim of teaching teachers, a project which the Minister of Education turned down and he instead asked that they look into Technological Education. Today they are working with the Cambodian Ministry of Education and Universities to look into setting up a “Hybrid” High School and Institute of Technology.
