In Brief: Busy NGO launches community centre

Globalteer is about to start teaching at its new community development centre in Khor Kranh village in the south of Siem Reap. Project manager Manfred Messerli said the aim is to support the kids of poor families, and the first classes will be held this Monday. In the long term, the centre will provide Khmer- and English-language teaching, computer classes, a small nursery, a vocational training centre for electricians and a library - as well as help establish micro businesses. Another service provided by this busy NGO is the provision of a western volunteer nurse who visits the different projects supported by Globalteer. She conducts health checks, provides hygiene and HIV education, and stocks up the projects with equipment and medicine. Globalteer is registered as a charity in England and Wales.
