Having 8 hours of intensive English per week; (3). the students learned ICT 2 hours per week; (4). provided intensive training sessions in Kampong Cham and Phnom Penh; (5). Provided the community service projects; (6). provided personal development activities and over 600 instruction hours of instruction for each student; (7). provided scholarship materials such as bicycles, school bags, and English books and (8). provided the hydroponic life skills training. As the result, all 40 ACCESS students have studied about Women’s History when most women in the world did not have the right to vote or access education opportunities. This led to gender inequity throughout many countries. Students are encouraged to learn from these historical experiences and apply the lessons learned to Cambodia. Students also study about the US education system as this relates to school environments and the differences in education between the United States and Cambodia. They successfully graduated and received 2-year identified certificates. This project was supported by the US. Embassy in Phnom Penh. As the good result, the project would be expanded in 2020.
