Invest in Cambodian Youth
Every donation made to JWOC helps us to invest in Cambodian youth by providing Scholarships that enable young people to access higher education, vocational training or skilled jobs, as well as tailored workshops that improve their language skills, digital literacy, career progression, well-being and opportunities to develop as resilient youth leaders.
The greatest gift you can give is an unrestricted gift. Please allow us to apply your generosity where it is most needed. An unrestricted gift provides us the flexibility to respond to timely needs prioritized by the youth we work with. It also allows us to creatively leverage other funds and investments made by our partners and supporters.
Monthly donors help us focus more of our time and effort on the students we support. By making a recurring donation, you are enabling young people in Cambodia to feel more confident and equipped to fulfill their educational journey at JWOC and beyond.
Message from Founder Andrea Ross
With the help of our donors, JWOC awards university scholarships to young people in Siem Reap who have a desire to pursue higher education and help their community. JWOC enhances their University experience by helping them become change-makers and preparing them for skilled employment after graduation.
