We are so pleased to launch our new program that will help assist young at risk men from remote villages to gain building skills and the opportunity of a formal construction education. In conjunction with the Lighthouse Club Queensland and Rick Garson we are hoping to create opportunities for village youth who are in danger of living a life of poverty and no hope of an education.
Rick will oversee the project which will launch in Siem Reap in the next week. Rick has identified our first apprentice and we will be monitoring his progress. Once he is competent in building skills, he will be offered an opportunity to further his education to study at a local university where he can learn a trade such as electrical or plumbing.
Our program will also provide education on Occupational Health and Safety practices that will show Cambodian builders the importance of safety for life preservation.
We attended the Lighthouse Club Charity Ball at the start of August and they kindly donated $5000 to start the project. We would like to thank the Lighthouse Club committee for giving this donation and opportunity.
We will post updates here regularly.
