PIO has a Memorandum of Understanding with the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport and follows the national curriculum for grades 1 to 9. This allows PIO to provide education to some of Cambodia’s most vulnerable populations and be recognized by the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport. A child that graduates PIO will be able to continue at any government school at the appropriate level. Our work is focused primarily in our outreach centers. We work directly with the people in the community and provide the children and their families with education and rice for their family. For the older students, we offer a vocational training program, that teaches girls beauty salon skills. Learning a skill provides the opportunity for the girls to earn income. To support the local community we also coordinate a local community savings program.
