Fund IT training for young women from poor communities in Cambodia

Cambodia 9 Contributors Launched January 04, 2018 Funding ends:30-12-2018

The challenge

In today’s digital world, acquiring key skills in technology can help girls and young women in Cambodia to find regular employment and participate in their country’s development. Currently, however, the barriers of poverty – 23% of Cambodians survive on less than $1.25 per day – and gender discrimination are still depriving most girls and women in Cambodia, particularly those from poor families, of their right to even basic education. For these girls and women, specialized training in IT is a distant dream.

 

Not only does this lack of qualifications and skills prevent girls and young women from fulfilling their potential and determining their own futures, it also exposes them to socio-economic dangers associated with poverty, such as violence and prostitution, which create a vicious cycle.

The solutions we’re proposing 

W4’s field program provides computer training programs for girls from some of the poorest communities in Cambodia. By funding these courses, which ordinarily would be unaffordable for these underprivileged girls, you offer them the chance to acquire a powerful educational tool that enhances both their self-confidence and their employability.

The impact of giving

A modest donation to fund computer training for an underprivileged girl can have a powerful, transformative impact on her life by:

 

  • Enhancing her employment opportunities;
  •  Increasing her access to important information and services (in nutrition, HIV/AIDS and health, for example);
  •  Amplifying her voice (through access to websites, blogs, forums, etc.); 
  • Boosting her self-confidence (through the acquisition of new skills).

 

Help educate poor girls and young women in Cambodia through IT training and give them the opportunity to flourish as change-makers, equipped to break the cycle of poverty and drive progress in their communities!
