“Driving development through language learning”Our model directly benefits students who are empowered to use English in their own lives to express their own culture. Student fees fund development projects by our partner, CRDT. CRDT provides sustainable community and rural development projects to 4,961 families in support of conservation of the critically endangered Mekong River Irrawaddy Dolphins in Kratie and Stung Treng, and the protection of tropical forest biodiversity in Mondulkiri.

It is a quiet, secure neighbourhood, away from tourist traps. A variety of nice cafes, restaurants, and even a few bars are popping up as the city grows.
