We have learned a lot from our many projects active in cambodia. We have multiple Orphanages in Cambodia and south east asia. We can apply the things we have learned in those places to the build a city project.
Our greatest aim is to not simply provide shelter and food that addresses a child’s basic survival needs, but to provide an atmosphere of love, security, dignity and family. This is true for the build a city project as well. It in turn provides the emotional and physical infrastructure that every child needs to feel confident and empowered to dream and reach beyond the cultural norm - which for most Cambodians is a cycle of poverty, broken families and dysfunction.
We offer community outreach several days a week by providing food, education, instruction and fellowship.
We want these children to grow up with a sense of belonging to a family. Research has shown that the majority of orphanages and children's homes fail their children in the last stage critical stage of transition "out of the nest" and into independent life as a confident adult. To have success with this, we have a thoughtful, realistic plan of transition in place for our children. We walk with them as they transition out of the home all the while confirming to them that they will always have a place to come home to.
We've learned how to be more than just meeting momentary physical needs. We've learned how to help children grow up and transition into independent adults.
We want children to become agents of change - first in their own lives and then in the broader world around them.
We have learned a lot from our many projects active in cambodia. We have partnered with the Lee University Business Department to create an Integrated Farm. We can apply the things we have learned there to the build a city project.
We have created an integrated farming model that is economically and environmentally sustainable and serves as model for Cambodian farmers and other development organizations. The farm includes pigs, chickens and a fish pond, along with numerous fruit trees and soy plants. Having a farm allows us to teach locals to provide for not only themselves but for their community as well.
We constantly ask the questions, "In what constructive way could the farm positively impact the surrounding community?” We want to always seek to maximize sustainable community development an do no harm in the process. We've learned that one of the greatest possibility of positive change is by enabling farmers to better their produce through the introduction of more profitable crops, more efficient systems and better technology. It is a widely held belief among economists that Cambodia’s greatest potential for development lies in the agricultural sector. We want to be leaders in the development of this market. Building an integrated farm in the new city will create jobs for locals, profits for the economy and healthy food for the city.
We have learned a lot from our many projects active in cambodia. We created an institute to provide a tuition-free two year post secondary education. We can apply the things we have learned there to the build a city project.
PCL Management Institute, know as PMI, is committed to give the less fortunate youth a fighting chance for a good future by providing them with employable skills through quality education. We have collaborated with Lee University in Cleveland, TN, USA and Lee Community College in Singapore in terms of technical exchanges, curriculum development and lecturer’s training and staff management.
At many of our facilities we offer computer classes throughout Cambodia. These classes provide basic training in Word and Excel for approximately 100 students per month. English classes are taught in seven locations throughout Phnom Penh and Siem Reap. These courses provide Cambodians with an opportunity to better their future and provide for their families. Offering this kind of higher education for the new city will lay a foundation for future positive change.
We have learned a lot from our many projects active in cambodia. We have have a coffee shop in Siem Reap, Cambodia. We can apply the things we have learned in those places to the build a city project.
The idea behind Common Grounds Coffee Shop was very simple--provide a place where common ground can be discovered and relationships made. We seen that not only does this coffee shop provide community, but it also gives the poor a working chance. Most receive job opportunities that would have never been available to them anywhere else. Many have also been blessed to receive scholarships for further education.
Students come here to acquire a quality education through English classes of different levels, a 12 week curriculum as well as computer and financial literacy courses. To foster community we provide various group activities and community service activities.
Common Grounds Coffee House and Training Center in Siem Reap, Cambodia is People for Care & Learning's primary base of innovative assistance, providing micro-enterprise development and vocational training. This type of micro-enterprise will provide the new city will great opportunities for not only education and community, but a place of work.
We have learned a lot from our many projects active in cambodia. We have multiple barges on the Tonle Sap lake. We can apply the things we have learned in those places to the build a city project.
The Tonle Sap is the largest lake in SE Asia and is home to millions of refugees. We own and operate two barges and provide the refugees access to clean water, food, medical care and education. The people living on this lake rely on our support. These people have fundamentally no humanitarian assistance, but PCL is making great strides to bring much needed help to this impoverished area. Our barges are used as a daily preschool, feeding center, training center, and medical clinic.
88% of all diseases are caused by unsafe drinking water. Water filters can be purchased for only $12 and will provide clean water for an entire family for at least one year. With the support of our partners we provide hundreds of Cambodian families with water filters each year; training families about the importance of drinking clean water and distributing water filters.
We will be able to provide families in the new city with clean water and the education needed to remain healthy.
