Aogaah Foundation® provides educational OPPORTUNITY for impoverished children by
opening and operating free Community Schools. ‘Aogaah’ means ‘opportunity’ in Khmer,
the language of Cambodia.

taught by community adults for community children. The curriculum promotes local
customs. Classes in English are only offered in communities that specifically request them.

Aogaah need to raise a minimum of $8000 per year to enable 100 kids to have the opportunity to attend school ($10000 needed for next year), not a lot when you think of what is spent on an individuals education in the west. All monies received to date are from personal donations, some corporate donations would be nice.
