Educating Smiling Children (ESC) works in Cambodia.
Mission statement: to set up schools in remote areas of the country and ensure their operation.
ESC works in partnership with the Cambodian Department of Education to build schools in remote areas. ESC also takes care of the supervision and operating costs of these schools (teacher salaries, classroom furniture, learning material and school uniforms for the children).
At the start of the 2017 school year, 30 teachers and about 50 classes will host around 1,400 pupils in 14 schools, 10 kindergartens, 2 primary schools and 2 computer centres.
ESC also works in the sanitation area by building wells and toilets in public schools.
The Albatros Foundation has been supporting ESC since 2010.
