For the children of the Steung Meanchey area, education is their lifeline out of poverty. Education, more than any other factor, can provide hope, opportunity and security. With a solid education, the possibilities are endless, and that's why it is our greatest priority at CCF.
Many children arrive at CCF having had little or no education. Most can't read or write. Others have spent some time in the public school system, but due to sub-standard materials, teacher-to-student ratios, or inability to pay the fees, have not been able to realize their full potential. Our education programs offer dynamic academic content and accelerated learning opportunities. All CCF students are involved in the CCF Education Program. With intensive English as the focus, we concentrate on reading, writing and comprehension. The students love Computer Studies, which includes web design and studying all office programs. CCF students are also integrated into the Cambodian public school system for coursework in Khmer language, mathematics and science.
