As well as our school education we feel vocational education is key to helping the future Khmer generation find work. One of our vocational courses is our textiles, sewing and tailoring class where students learn how to make different clothes and products to sell. We had a number of machines and equipment donated when we first set-up but we need a few extra to help with our teaching.
Here is a breakdown of what we are after exactly, with the cost to buy it in Cambodia. If you are able to send it otherwise, we would always welcome the donation. To set-up a donation click here.
