Cambodia Rural Students Foundation


Providing Education to Rural Cambodian Students

The Cambodia Rural Students Foundation is a non-government organization, registered with the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC) as a Designated Gift Recipient (DGR).


We are committed to supporting the education of bright students from economically-challenged rural Cambodian families, but more than that, we are committed to instilling in them the values, empowerment and inspiration to become engaged and contributing members of society.


Our quality education and mentorship programs are designed to give a hand up, not a hand out, as we believe that education is a fundamental right, leading to self-fulfilment and sustainable social development. Join us in our mission to break the poverty cycle through education.

We provide funding to the Cambodia Rural Students Trust ("CRST"), a registered NGO with the Cambodian Ministry of Interior. To learn more about CRST, click here.

Our Impact

"It has been more than five years now that I have joined CRST. If I take a second to look back to the old time, I just could not believe that I have come this far. For these many years, I just could not believe I would become who I am today. Besides giving me the greatest opportunity to study at the best university, you have also given me so many golden opportunities to learn and develop myself.”

Pov Pach, Student

"It was so wonderful to visit the beautiful CRST campus and meet so many inspirational future leaders and hear about all the life-changing programs Australian students can get involved with. We look forward to working together to advance educational opportunities for both Cambodian and Australian students!"

GLE Expeditions, Partner

"Cambodia Rural Students Trust (CRST) is a terrific NGO that supports young promising rural students to achieve significant educational pathways. The students also work with the local community as volunteers to rebuild lives, improve girls' menstrual health, assist in the building of safe water supplies and a number of other worthwhile self-sustaining activities. CRST is raising, educating and developing a new generation of wise leaders."
