We strive to nurture youth lacking resources with Love.
After having been through French colonization, Khmer Rouge and civil war, Cambodia was one of the poorest countries in the world. Even though her strong economic growth has taken place these two decades, war trauma continues to influence today’s governance and society. We believe the life-transforming power of Education is the cure of her deep-rooted problems.
We have established Bahuy AGS Primary School and Kindergarten in Pailin. With the opportunities for education, the life of the students can be transformed and the livelihood of the students can be improved in the long run.

白墟村（Bahuy）是一條接近泰國邊境的徙置村，距離柬埔寨珠山市（Pailin, Cambodia）7公里，亦是紅色高棉（Khmers Rouges）最後佔據的地區，地下埋滿了地雷。以往是「三不通」：路不通，電不通，水不通，直至2016年才開始有水及電的供應。在2007年政府邀請我們在當地開辦珠山小學，至今已多屆的畢業生，全校學生人數接近200位。
Bahuy village in Pailin province is the last stronghold of the Khmer Rouge. After the United Nations had cleared the landmines in the area, we were invited by the local government to build a primary school there in 2007. There are now having many graduates, with nearly 200 students.
Our students are appreciated by parents and principals from local secondary schools for their good morals. Education innovates students, while students bring Love back to their family. It turns a gloomy area into a caring village.
Friends join our hands by engaging in the “One Schoolbag for One Child” sponsorship program, “Light Up Program” and students Sponsorship. These provide school-age children in poor areas a chance to go to school, and a chance for them to get out of poverty in the long run.
In order to encourage the graduates to continue education in high school, we subsidize the high school students through a sponsorship program.
紅色高棉 Khmer Rouge
2 million people were executed or died from starvation, disease or overworking under the governance of Marxist dictator ruler Pol Pot from 1975 to 1979. Most young adults and intellectuals were killed, causing an inerasable wound to Cambodia.
We have been striving to establish a high school and vocational training school in Pailin, Cambodia. The vision of the school is to elevate the poor from extreme poverty, by providing students with quality education, to give them hope and potential for growth intellectually and spiritually and inspire them to make contributions to the community .
We serve with the purpose of caring and nurturing future leaders, as well as connecting and building up the local community. The project consists of constructing a junior high school, a senior high school, vocational workshop, academic and administration building, dormitories for teachers and students, soccer court, assembly hall and a community centre with activity rooms.
