Rubbish School in Cambodia

We are raising money with Kimleng Sang who has been running Rubbish School in Cambodia for the last few months. Kimleng has started the school for children who cannot attend school and teaches them  about the environment and learning English. To pay for the school, the children must collect plastic rubbish from the local area and learn to recycle it. He started with just 8 children, but now has 37 children coming Monday to Friday for around 2 hours per day. The children are mostly around 7 - 12, but some older students are now coming also. Kimleng was recently featured on BBC News for his great work making a difference in the local community.

Currently, we have some expert teachers from overseas connecting on video chat to help teach the children, but this is all done from one computer. We have recently purchased another computer and hoping to get some more funds for more equipment for the children. 

We are hoping to raise some funds to buy a projector or TV for the students, some more computers, school furniture and stationery supplies.

We hope to give the children a bright future and your help is very much appreciated.  Thank you kindly.
