Charity

Founded in 2011 by the Palti family from Melbourne, Australia, the Cambodia Rural Students Trust (CRST) is a Non-Government Organisation (NGO) registered with the Cambodian Interior Ministry. Our NGO sponsors our students’ education, health and dental care, life-skill courses and monthly living allowances. Being sponsored to study also means being part of the NGO family, a support system and hands-on learning experience in itself.

This unique NGO currently sponsors the high school and university education of 104 bright students from poor rural families. CRST is unique for two key reasons – firstly there are zero overheads, so every dollar in donations is used for education and community projects; secondly, CRST is managed entirely by the students of the NGO, who receive daily mentoring on managing an organisation. Additionally, all our students volunteer regularly in the community – essentially they are taught that they are Cambodia’s future leaders and they can start helping society now, they don’t have to wait until they graduate and earn money.

Students are also mentored as they manage several projects and enterprises – all designed to give them hands-on business, leadership and management skills. These projects include a frozen-yogurt store and projects focused on empowering girls, the environment and hosting foreign volunteers.
