Cambodian After-School Learning Program

 

So come along and bring your homework!!

Project: “After School Learning"

This project was set up by three of our Trustees who are well qualified for the task.

 Having seen the children in our Trust in need of extra help with reading and homework, along with many issues concerning their well being needing to be addressed, we set up this project called “Family Learning”. 

It is on Tuesday from 7pm to 8:30pm. at 91 Cambridge Tce, Papatoetoe, Auckland 

We have  two to four volunteers for each session with many guests coming as role models.

Rational
