“Good Blokes Golf”, Reasonable Cause Inc. and This Life Inc. conduct a joint project agreement to provide young disadvantaged Cambodians with an opportunity to become government recognised trade qualified motorbike mechanics, or “moto doctors.”
Participants in the program often come from families that could not afford for their kids to finish high school. Some participants may have had a “brush with the law” and been diverted to this program rather than face sterner measures.
With no shortage of motorbikes in Cambodia, there are plenty of opportunities for the graduates to find stable skilled employment.
The project also offers business mentoring and “seed money” to assist those who aspire to opening up their own motorbike repair business. The program is partially self-funded as apprentices participate in the conduct of a commercial motorbike repair business whilst completing their studies.
