Our Programs

English Class Program
We currently offer English classes at our school in Banteay Srey and at a pagoda in Kampong Thom.  English is the de facto international language and is very important language in Cambodia, where tourism makes up over 16% of the country’s GNP (approximately 2.1 million visit Siem Reap annually).  Offering classes allows motivated students to learn the language, creating a bridge to job opportunities and meaningful careers in the tourism and hospitality sector.  Finding work in the city will bring a higher salary and gives the students the ability to support themselves and their

Clean Water
In 2010 we began offering sewing classes to local entrepreneurs in Banteay Srey.  Many women were interested in learning the trait, but obstacles prevented them from participating, in particular the costs of machines and courses.

Field Trip
According to a survey conducted in 2007 at the request of the World Bank, between 39% and 60% of rural Cambodians currently have access to clean drinking water (1). Many in the communities near Banteay Srey still lack access to clean water. Others claim to drink clean water, but it would be considered contaminated by international health standards. Bridge of Life School is addressing this issue with a multidimensional approach that increases access and raises awareness of the importance of using and drinking clean water.
