Botumsakor Community Development Organisation
managed by Sopheap P.
Botumsakor Community Development Organisation (BCDO) was established on 15 November, 2009 and is based in Andong Teuk, Cambodia. BCDO started as a private education school to provide education and vocational training for the young generation.
The project aims to continue sustainable growth of the community through a rural development model. In addition to educational facilities, BCDO has promoted activities which will improve community development. These have a particular focus on environmental issues enhancing agricultural productivity, preservation of natural recourses and through the promotion of eco-tourism.
Since its founding, BCDO has collected only nominal school fees from attendees. The fees are used to defray the costs of electricity, water and rent. Many of the nearly 300 students are from impoverished circumstances and neither they nor their families are able to afford fees that could sustainably support BCDO.
Today there are seven English classes with an average of 15 children. BCDO offers three classrooms, a library and a playground. Next to the educational focus, the project established a production of biogas and bio-briquettes, to give the village an alternative energy source. Briquettes and biogas work also to reduce levels of indoor air pollution as smoke, as well as discontinue the labor required for wood cutting. Besides all that BCDO grows vegetables in its own garden to be self reliant.
