Project name

Extension of "La Paloma" educational centre


Construction of a new building with classrooms and disabled access.


Battambang, Cambodia


Until now the boys and girls of the Arrupe and Casa Lidy centres have been receiving English classes, computer classes, more specialised support, social entrepreneurship, etc. with specialised teachers in classrooms in "La Paloma", but an adequate structure is still lacking.

This project will provide the necessary training to give many people job opportunities.

Project Description

The project consists of the construction of a new building with classrooms and access for the disabled in which more than 60 boys and girls can improve their quality of learning. It will be open to more boys and girls in the area.


The new centre will give an academic offer to boys and girls from the Battambang area, this will provide more employment options to a rural and disabled population without resources, thus favouring social integration.
