BFT has adopted over 8 villages on a 4 years project plan, while working in over 25 villages to improve education in schools. Our main aim is to empower the Cambodian people with the right intellectual and economic tools to attain self-sufficiency. We believe that education is key to developing economic stability and personal well-being along with peace for the individual family, and hence the whole of Cambodian society. We are highly committed to providing the opportunity for people, especially children who have been living through hardship and poverty, with effective solutions to improve their lives. We would like to see a day when Cambodian people are not dependent on foreign aid, and have the power to change their & their family’s life for a brighter future”, said Prof.
