What We Do

Life Skills Education

Life Skills Education

The Life Skills program at CFC schools expands the Cambodian curriculum by offering a variety of subjects that build children’s skills. Students learn from teachers and volunteers in classrooms and at a dedicated building on the Aranh Sakor High School campus. Subjects include agriculture, electrical, plumbing, bike repair, leadership, art, music, sports, and more. This program builds leadership, motor skills, and creativity as well as technical skills that are useful in the job market.

How do we this?

  • Student Councils build leadership, initiative and presentation skills
  • Music Program introduces students to instruments, teaches them and provides practice space
  • Agriculture curriculum and hands-on opportunities
