Welcome to Journeys Within Our Community

Learning today, leading tomorrow…

It’s that time of year again. When students all over the world eagerly await the first day of school.  New pencils, new books, new teachers, new classmates… an exciting new opportunity to learn and to grow.

But as you know, many students are left without such experiences – especially in Cambodia. Due to a struggling economy and failing school system, students young and old are deprived of a quality, well-rounded education each year.  And each year, our mission remains the same: to provide these underprivileged individuals a quality education that fosters enthusiasm, passion and hope with each class they take.

Here at JWOC, we believe that education is the key to success. It lays the foundation for opportunity and growth, both personally and professionally, for students of all ages. This year, over 1,000 students have enrolled in JWOC courses spanning from English to Science to Computer Literacy. In addition, our library has hosted a number of community activities like drop-in art classes, kindergarten classes and professional development trainings – all free to our young learners. And with each course our Free Classes program offers, our hope is to instill lessons that transcend the classroom and bring about positive change within the community.

 As we enter this new academic year, we want to strengthen our impact on the students we teach and support a community so eager to learn. Your donation can make a huge difference in our students’ lives. Give the gift of education and support the students who attend JWOC’s Free Classes.
