The Don Bosco Technical School is a charity based technical school for young people from vulnerable and poor communities. Therefore, it has to rely on funding from different sources and there are many ways that you can donate to help ensure that these young people learn a skill in order to get a better job and escape the cycle of poverty in Cambodia.
