Share on facebook Share on twitter Share on linkedin Share on whatsapp Share on email What challenges are SC trying to solve? Sustainable Cambodia (SC) programs primarily focus on keeping children at school. This involves working with the families to ensure financial security and income throughout a variety of self empowerment models. Children are often forced to leave school at age 15 to assist families. SC empowers the village families to create a sustainable quality of life, helping them acquire fresh water, irrigation, schools, agriculture, skills and income generation. History: How and why SC began... Sustainable Cambodia began as a small school project, but has quickly grown to encompass education and village development. The initial school project – the Sylvia Lasky Memorial School – has grown rapidly as well. Established in 2001 on the outskirts of Pursat, largely to serve the small village of Osdao, the school originally provided books, clothes, school supplies, bicycles and English classes to approximately 60children from the surrounding community. Many of the families were also provided with monthly food supplements, helping them break the cycle of need that kept their children working in the fields rather than learning new skills in school and applying knowledge that could help their community develop.Today, SC have expanded the education programs with three different centers and have more than 4,000 children enrolled. It serves not only Pursat town but several nearby districts. Everyone in the villages – every child, parent and volunteer – is transformed through education. The people of Pursat are resourceful, hard-working and loving.
