Cambodia Rural Students Trust
Breaking the poverty cycle through education
By giving people a hand up rather than a hand out, we sponsor bright students from poor rural families, to study at the best high school and university in Siem Reap. Our mentorship, life-skills and business-skills experiences, form the foundation of an empowered life and social contribution.
CRST is managed on the ground entirely by our students, who receive daily mentoring on managing an organisation. They are also mentored as they manage several projects and enterprises – all designed to give them hands-on business, leadership and management skills
IN 2023 WE WILL BE:
Sponsoring 104 inspiring CRST students in High School & University
Distributing 6,000 Project G Days for Girls Kits
Building 6 new homes for rural families
Educating 15,000 students on the effects of single use plastic & providing them sustainable solutions
Repairing 25 homes for rural families
Supporting 22 rural families with monthly food & essential living supplies
Repairing 420 bicycles & donating 300 bicycles to rural students
Installing 10 BioSand clean water filtration systems in rural schools
What makes us unique?
CRST is managed on the ground in Cambodia by our senior students, who are mentored in managing the organisation and Social Enterprise Projects by a group of Australian business volunteers.
100% of donations are used for education, mentoring and community projects. All overhead costs are covered by a corporate sponsor
