Bringing IT skills to schools and students in rural Cambodia
We are passionate about Information Technology. It is essential to modern day life. Whether finding a restaurant, communicating with friends or paying taxes. We use it everyday.
In Cambodia we observed that young people were struggling to use it effectively, sometime struggling to use it at all. In many cases it hadn’t been explained. This included use of Google, how to be safe online, Social Media or understanding a computer.
Our background is technology – our whole working lives. Our goal is to introduce basic IT skills to students.
After observation and discussions we came to the conclusion the best way to help is to provide training classes to the schools for their students. See more.
There are 3 of them:
To help schools with their use and understanding of Information Technology. This will enable teachers to improve the IT skills of students

To give students interested in a career in IT, greater understanding of IT and the roles (jobs) that exist within IT. Further to give them some practical projects that demonstrate aspects of the technologies.
