    The Athlete’s Foot School I

    This primary and secondary school serves a farming community. The school opening was a great event with local parents cooking up a feast for our International visitors. Once the building opened students came from far and wide to attend and get their first experience of computers. Some cycling over 15 km to study. The school has since hosted several visits by students and sponsor groups.

    Partner: M'Lop Tapang

    M’lop Tapang Drop-in Centre

    Sihanoukville, Cambodia - RideAid’s support for M’lop Tapang takes many shapes. The Drop-In Centre was our first project with the organization, and it continues to this date, albeit in a new location. The centre was formed to address the needs of homeless children with substance abuse problems. These children, attracted by the availability and low cost of glue sniffing, are often at risk of becoming addicted to this substance. These youth can be problematic and disruptive when integrated into normal programs. There are often emergencies that require the assistance of specially-trained staff. RideAid partnered with M’lop Tapang to build and staff a stand-alone centre, open 24 hours a day, focusing on these youths.

    M’lop Tapang Vocational Training Centre

    Sihanoukville, Cambodia - Implementing partner M’Lop Tapang aims to link training to effective, viable income generation opportunities for young men and women (age 15+). By providing the opportunity to learn a skill, these students are empowered to support themselves and their families in the future. We equip them with life skills including Khmer and English language, health and drug awareness, and budgeting before entering the workforce so they are able to maintain employment in an increasingly competitive environment. Currently, 70 children are learning skills in motorbike mechanics, electrical repair and installation, welding, and screen printing. The girls’ centre trains over 30 students – many of whom formerly worked in karaoke bars or as sex workers – in sewing, arts and crafts, and hospitality skills.
