CYA – Learning Center Kampot
CYA LEARNING CENTER (CLC) started in May 2014 and we are now providing a free alternative education for children and teenagers in Praphnom commune, Angkor Chey district, Kampot province. Three classrooms were built and 285 students are now studying English with their international and local volunteer’s teachers. CYA – Learning Center is now also providing the computer course for the teenagers and one library is now accessing free by CYA-‐learning Center students and children around the community.
