When living in the developed world, it’s easy to forget how lucky we are. The truth is that even in 2022, almost 10% of the human population lives in poverty - getting by on less than $2AUS per day. It’s a harsh reality for nearly 690 million people, but OCA, we’re doing our bit to give back by working with the charity REACH Siem Reap and providing access to our short courses and much more.
How can a company give back to communities?
That’s for each company to decide, but there’s much that can be done to help those who are unable to help themselves. Things that we might take for granted can positively affect people in the world's poorest areas. We choose to help by providing support for personal development and empowerment through education.
Why should businesses have social responsibility?
That’s a difficult question to answer briefly, but we’d say that it’s because businesses CAN help that they should. You don’t have to be a non-profit or charity to realise the meaningful change in the lives of families and children around the world, so why wouldn’t you? Alongside helping others, businesses that give back are seen as companies with a social conscience.
How OCA Is Changing Lives With REACH Siem Reap
REACH Siem Reap is a charity organisation that does fantastic work in Cambodia, helping families to break the cycle of poverty. Families are provided with holistic support and equal opportunities that come with education. They work with adults and children to realise the meaningful change in collaboration with NGOs, child protection agencies, and local authorities.
They assist in a range of areas that include:
- Health & nutrition
- Youth pathways
- Computer literacy
At Online Courses Australia, we’re proud to say that we’re helping to realise that meaningful change by offering free access to our online short courses. After assessing the needs of each individual, they can make the most suitable training while getting the support they need along the way.
We are always keen to give back in any way we can as an organisation, and it thrills us to see the success stories that come out of programs like this. As such, we work with several charities around the world, offering assistance and educational support wherever it’s required.
