Safe dormitory 


University students from HVTO were living with friends, extended family, or commuted 60 kilometers round-trip daily to classes in Siem Reap. Through our College Prep Program HVTO is renting a home in Siem Reap that utilizes as a dormitory for about 15 students, and serves as the new HVTO office. This helps take our students off of dangerous streets, gives them more study time, and brings them closer to employment possibilities.
The students that benefit from this program are attending Southeast Asia University in Siem Reap. In addition to teaching and mentoring the younger students that create a self-sustaining HVTO, they ultimately become part of the middle class that Cambodia so desperately needs. Each university student is carefully monitored by HVTO, and all are required to return to the village weekly to assist in the HVTO educational programs. In this capacity they not only provide valuable role models for the younger students, but they can also give them an idea of the nature of life outside the narrow confines of their village.
To facilitate and accommodate HVTO sponsored students to be able to continue their higher education.
Providing a safe place and helping reduce the difficulty of parents, together to facilitate the process of our students to get better education and to build human resource for future Cambodia.

HVTO receives funds from two organizations below. These organizations are fundraising actively in USA and Canada to collect the money to support the HVTO safe dormitory.
