Engineers Without Borders Hong Kong is working with Aide et Action Hong Kong to build schools and community center facilities in Kandal Province in Cambodia (about 2 hours drive from Phnom Penh). Local construction workers will be hired to build schools, in order to provide local employment opportunities and create a win-win situation. We hope that the school design can be applied to other communities as well in the future and contribute in long run. Since the project is fully on a voluntary basis without any financial funding, we invite you to support us to take the first step. Your donation will be 100% used for the project and we will report the progress of the project to you regularly.

“2 Billion Kilometres to Safety” is a global movement organized by UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency. Together, we are challenging ourselves to cover two billion kilometres, just as refugees worldwide do each year to reach the nearest point of safety. .
