How does this organization make a difference?

Overview

Self-reported by organization

2012 Goals:

Support the provision of quality education to children in rural communities.

Empower students and teachers with the tools to succeed in life.

 

Empower young students to be leaders in their communities and provide them with the knowledge and tools to make positive change.

 

Encourage older community members to support young leaders in their activities and programs.

 

 

In the 2011-2012 school year, we provided training for 87 teachers and community members and worked with  more than 3,140 students. Successes include:

 

 

Over 200 students at Chanleas Dai Junior High School elected to attend PEPY supplemental classes.
The result was the chance to develop creativity while learning new relevant
skills; more time with educators while preparing for school exams; and a forum for students to regularly identify, discuss, and receive
support  in reaching their own future
goals and overcoming their individual challenges.

 

There was an expansion of the Community Development Program
into Young Leader clubs that give students who have participated in Child to
Child clubs for several years a chance to focus on advanced topics, foster
greater leadership and presentation skills, and come up with their own ways to
enhance their communities’ physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional health.

 

79 Teachers and 759 students elected to participate in
PEPY’s Math and Literacy camp over the summer break. This means students could make use of their summer break in an engaging environment and develop skills necessary for academic success.  Teachers participated in training and received new skills, tools, and ideas to effectively engage students.  The numbers reflect a continued increase in
participants each year.

 

There was an improvement of documentation of our Child to
Child club methodologies.  This allowed
us to share our methodologies with others, who can expand their use, and lay
the foundation for monitoring that will enhance our ability to empower
youth. 

 

PEPY Librarians nurtured a culture of reading for primary
school students, with the volume of books checked-out in the last year
increasing 124%.

 

In four villages, community members donated time, materials,
and land to create a safe, dedicated space to accommodate Child to Child clubs.

Program 1

Partnering with Schools

This projects and classes that comprise this program are design to complement and enhance the Cambodian government curriculum. Classes are available to junior high school students in Chanleas Dai commune. We also provide training and curriculum development assistance to primary school teachers at Cambodian government schools.  
 
Creative Learning Classes are designed to develop problem solving and critical thinking skills, and to allow students to express their ideas creatively and collaboratively.  Students use XO computers and open-source programming software to create educational games and conduct research on the internet.
 
The Engineering Club is available to 7th and 8th graders.  Over 30 students meet each week for an hour to work on a wide variety of projects in the field of engineering, including robotics, XO laptop repair, and the creation of structures out of various materials.
 
The Newspaper club is available to 7th and 8th graders.Students meet 3 times a week and focus on developing skills including interviewing, structuring newspaper articles, and photography. Through these lessons, students improve writing techniques, build confidence in their abilities, and strengthen relationships with their community.
 
Supplementary English Classes, available to junior high school students, give students a competitive advantage when pursuing their professional dreams for the future.
 
Exam Preparation is provided during the spring semester in Math, Khmer, Chemistry, and Physics to 9th graders.
 
 We offer Dream Manager support to 9th graders by helping them identify their dreams and goals for the future and encouraging them to discuss and address any challenges that may need to be overcome.

Program 2

Community Development

The Community Development Program consists of Child-to-Child clubs and Young Leader clubs. 
 
Child to Child clubs encourage children aged 5-14 to identify issues they encounter on a regular basis, such as dengue fever or pollution, and then plan a course of action to work for change within their own neighborhoods. Currently there are 16 Child Clubs with a total of 261 participants, and 8 educators to facilitate these clubs.
 
The Young Leader project, initiated in 2011, consists of voluntary action-based groups for young people age 15-25. Participants seek to identify, learn about, and solve tangible problems in their own communities, thus building life skills and self-confidence.  The purpose behind the project is to provide a development model appropriate for young adults based on the success of PEPY's Child to Child initiative.  The clubs follow a 40 week curriculum, covering topics such as financial management, reproductive health, presentation skills, domestic violence, time management, and emotional awareness.  Currently there are 6 Youth Clubs with a total of 57 participants, and 5 educators to facilitate these clubs.
