The Red Road Foundation is an accredited non-profit organization founded in 2014. We are passionate and dedicated to bringing necessary resources to children in desperate need around the world. Currently, we create opportunities by establishing self-sustainable, economical, and educational community projects based in rural Cambodia.
The Red Road Foundation is made up of a dedicated group of individuals seeking to bring necessary resources to children in desperate need around the world. Our goal is to establish self-sustaining, compassionate, healing and educationally focused communities where currently there are none. Our organization seeks to raise awareness, funding, support and opportunity for lives in need.
The Red Road is a term used in Native American spiritual teachings to represent one who is "walking in balance". It is behavior, attitude, a way of living, a way of "doing" with reverence – of walking strong yet softly, so as not to harm or disturb other life. The Red Road is a pathway to truth, peace and harmony.
The mission of our first endeavor is to facilitate education to Cambodian youth by providing necessary resources, health care, and skills.
Project Phoenix is a Community Development Project in rural Cambodia. Due to the genocide of the Khmer Rouge, Cambodians have been left with a traumatized adult population and a generation of uneducated children in poverty. Our vision is to create a sanctuary within a village community where we can educate, employ, and share trade skills with local villagers and create a communal environment.
The Phoenix Project consists of the following programs:
• A Free Education Center for all Villagers
• A sustainable farm growing fruits, vegetables, and raising farm animals as a resource for the children and employees of Project Phoenix.
• A scholarship program/micro loan access that supports trade skills and an extracurricular program with classes that support interests such as the arts, farming, fishing, sports, and business skills.
• Recycled Glass Production
We are recruiting teachers to assist in our language classes & free community workshops in: leadership coaching, science, art, music, environmental science, health, hygiene, nutrition, sports and more.
