The project’s efforts target both improved education for children as well as enriched training for teachers. To accomplish these goals, Project Riyen delivers school supplies to elementary schools in rural areas throughout the year and provides training and preparation to students at the Siem Reap Provincial Teachers College.
As part of the Literacy Grant, tailored laptops preloaded with educational content, software and Internet access were purchased and given to the top graduates at the Siem Reap Provincial Teachers College. Those graduates receiving the laptops then returned to their villages equipped to improve the learning experience for their students.
Today, the project continues to enhance the lives of both students and teachers in Siem Reap. Learn more about Project Riyen in the below video.
