When SSI began their work in the Aural District

of the Kampong Speu Province of Cambodia, most females were illiterate. Now there are 2500

students attending 8 functioning primary and middle schools in rural villages.

The Leadership Academy, a residential  high school and college program  so far with 40 students.SSI has graduated their first 10 cohorts (upper level students). The students return to their villages to put their newly acquired skills to work for their families and communities.

The Leadership Academy also has continued to

expand the English Zone. A very successful english language program involving english speaking volunteers skyping  with english learners. A great concept.
