We are recruiting teachers to assist in our language classes & free community workshops in: leadership coaching, science, art, music, environmental science, health, hygiene, nutrition, sports, and more.
The mission of our first endeavor is to facilitate education to Cambodian youth by providing necessary resources, health care, and skills. Fostering future humanitarian leaders of our world.

We encourage our volunteers to utilize their unique skills and creativity to teach. “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”
About The Red Road Foundation
We are a group of like-minded individuals who foster the Red Road Foundation. Like many people, our lives have been filled with hardships and we have used these struggles as motivation to build something that will educate and empower others.
After witnessing the current state of affairs in our world, i.e. starvation, poverty, human trafficking, slavery, etc…we decided to do something to help. No longer could we live our lives knowing that we weren’t helping in some way. We went to Cambodia to see if it was a place where we could begin our mission. Not only is Cambodia beautiful, it is also ideal for our organization because it put us in direct contact with people who are eager to learn and to grow after suffering from mass genocide by the Khmer Rouge just 35 years ago. We fell in love with Cambodia. So we built a center there based on our core beliefs of Education, Environmental Awareness, Sustainability and Personal Empowerment.
After working in the mental health field in North America, we came to the conclusion that the current systems put in place were failing the youth, and the children enrolled in the programs were not utilizing the resources that were being offered. This was the catalyst for our quest to bring an understanding of gratitude and humility to our educational approach. We want to work with people that are truly motivated, excited for an opportunity, and inspired to have a better life.
By creating a free education center in rural Cambodia, our focus is on educating the impoverished youth, raising social, economic & environmental awareness, as well as empowering our students to create a better world.
In Cambodia today, there is still little and sometimes no public services. Rubbish collection is privatized and only in city areas. Glass will not be collected in the rubbish bins, consequently glass bottles and broken glass has become a major problem. It is here that we add to the sustainability aspect of our program. Through the manufacturing of recycled glass products we will create revenue to financially support or community development project and bring further awareness about recycling. Our next project is to make a ball mill where we can turn the glass we currently have no use for into sand. The sand can then be used for construction or ascetic purposes. We are currently seeking funding to enable us to progress to this stage. Please feel free to donate, links are above.

A spiritual teaching that represents a virtuous path of living. Inspired by Native American spiritual beliefs, the red road represents “walking in balance.” It is a way of doing with reverence – of walking strong yet softly toward truth, peace, and harmony.
