BOOKRBRIDGE Cambodia is one of the subsidaries of BOOKBRIDGE which is a social enterprise that sets up learning centers as social businesses in Cambodia in a joint cooperation with Cambodia Scouts and Ministry of Education and Sport. A BOOKBRIDGE learning centers consist of a library with books in Khmer and English that is set up in a welcoming learning environment. The learning centers offer free games and educational activities as well as courses that are subject to fees paid by community members. While the learning centers bring quality education to people in need they also serve as real life case studies in our “Capability Program”. The program participants from Global North work closely together with Cambodian counterparts to develop a concept for a learning center and to invest their entrepreneurial skills in the construction of the centers. The partcipants themselves thereby hone their skills in strategic planning, international project management and intercultural leadership. Since 2011, we have setup 7 learning centers in Siem Reap, Takeo and Kampot provinces.
