About The Red Road Foundation

We are a free education center that is working our way to self-sustainability. We work to give our students opportunity to grow into future humanitarians of Cambodia who can help to make this beautiful country and world a better place. We offer free Khmer, math and English classes regularly. We have volunteers and workshops that add trade skill training, extracurricular activities, hygiene and environmental education and awareness for our youth.

Our goal is to raise the quality of life of our students and their families. We aim to truly help and get to know each of our students and help them become all they can be by helping them develop each of their individual talents. We do this knowing of the trauma that this country has recently endured and wanting to be a force for healing and empowerment for the poor rural families in our village and surrounding villages.

We have future plans of microfinancing, small loans and fundraising efforts that are dedicated to our highest achieving students receiving higher education and small business loans for philanthropic and environmental causes.

Our school and other buildings on our property are built from recycled materials and the sustainability aspect of this project is very important to us. We will further develop our project with teaching locals about building with waste materials and spreading awareness about the importance of disposing of waste properly and reusing, refusing, recycling and reducing plastic.

Our school is built on a farm that is growing moringa, turmeric, aloe vera, eucalyptus and lemongrass that we are using to develop a health, wellness and beauty line that will eventually fund our projects and teacher salaries. We are also developing our sustainability through up-cyling and recycling glass bottles from town (which are currently headed to the landfill or in the river). We are cutting the glass with our solar powered glass cutting machines in order to make and sell drinking glasses, ash trays and lamp shades.

Our ultimate goal is for all parties associated with our project is for them to be mutually beneficial. We believe everyone has something special to offer our world and we established a place where individuals from all walks of life to come, better themselves and better the world around them. By creating a free education center in rural Cambodia, our focus is on educating the impoverished youth, raising social, economic & environmental awareness, and empowering our students to create a better world.

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.
