    Value Adviser Associates is a proud supporter of Cambodian Kids Can (CKC), an Australian charity that enables underprivileged young people in rural Cambodia to access quality education that is vital to their future success. CKC’s objective is to provide essential education services to children and young people in the rural region of Prey Veng, Cambodia, in order to address the inequality that exists between large urban centres and rural areas. By improving the quality of education and learning outcomes for students, these young people will obtain higher-skilled jobs with better salaries, which will transform their futures as well as the lives of their families. They have a particular focus on supporting girls as they typically have less education opportunities than boys. The vision is to create a Prey Veng community where every young person has equal access to education and opportunities to realise their potential Value Adviser Associates believes in the value of education to improve lives and affect change. Through this partnership we hope to raise vital funds to support the girls’ ambitions for their future
