  • Description

    Description

    Our Academy is a social project which aims at creating an e-learning platform offering free online resources to help Cambodians to become skilled freelancers. Although there are many free online courses already existing, knowing where to find them often proves difficult for the target population.

    We seek to help our students to compete for high-paying remote work positions on sites like UpWork, Fiverr or Freelancer.com to earn a livable income while staying in their home country with their families and stimulating the local economy.

    Additionally, staying motivated and understanding how to study is a major obstacle for the local population. Drawing on that need, we also want to create a structured mentorship program within our Academy to keep our students motivated and focus to become skilled freelancers.

    We only started to work full time on the Academy quite recently. We are thus still in the planning phase but our goal is to welcome our first students very soon.

    So, jump on board and help us make a difference in Cambodia!
