The Volunteer Development Children's Association (VDCA) is based in Siem Reap, Cambodia, and was registered as an official NGO in Cambodia in September 2007. We operate a Free School in Siem Reap, and a Free School and Nursery School in Anlung Pi village, 23km from town, located by the garbage dump. Our Free Schools function as supplementary schools to the public school system for the majority of the children. Some students, however, come from families who cannot afford the monthly fee of 6,000 Riel (1.50 USD) for public schools and our free schools may be their only option for an education.
