A Snapshot of Siem Reap
The town of Siem Reap is a major tourist destination because of its proximity to the gorgeous historical temples in the Angkor region. However, the country is still emerging from decades of instability and rule by the Khmer Rouge regime, and as a result more than half of the population in Cambodia is illiterate and living in or near poverty. Learning English at Elma School opens the door for future job opportunities in the tourism sector to improve the standard of living for their families.
