Mr. Tith Poeuy is the founder and director of the school. Prior to founding the school he was an English teacher and before that a tuk-tuk driver. Poeuy was born in 1981, one of five children and the son of farmer. When he was 14 years old he started government school. He completed High school in 2007. Later he attended university for a year and learned English at High Q Centre in Siem Reap.
Pouey’s ambition has always been to help those less fortunate, especially people in Veal village where he used to live.Pouey believes that education is the key to helping the next generation to break free from poverty and remains passionate about improving the lives of the families of Veal village.
School used to have local long term English teachers. Due to many personal reasons, they left for a better job (which is understandable). Mr. Poeuy, the founder of RTOC, is the only one who stays and insists on providing free education for kids. He believes that every child has the right for free, high-quality education.
It can be a challenging job, especially with a constantly changing team. Basically Poeuy, the director and founder of the school, and his wife are running this whole project by themselves, at times supported by volunteers, at times not. And this is a heavy job. This is the reason why he needs the support of volunteers and, even better, of a local teacher who could teach daily at the school and be the link between the volunteers.
