Welcome to Canesha, where you'll find support for educational programs serving the world's underserved societies. We believe that better education, encouragement and support generates tomorrow's prosperity, happiness and intellectual fulfillment.

That's why our inspiration for the name "Canesha" comes from Ganesha, a god widely revered in the Hindu and Buddhism beliefs as the Remover of Obstacles, Lord of new Beginnings and, Patron of Arts, Science, Intellect and Wisdom.

We strive for those ideals with a clear mission. We want to work with education-based NGOs to create environments where the world's children and young adults can learn, be courious, and thrive in healthy, proactive and sustainable communities. Isn't that what everyone deserves?

Cambodia - Smile of Angkor Children's Village

5 years ago Kimthol (Kim) Yoeun started to give back to the village he was born in. Kim was the only one in his age group who went to college. He became a high school teacher and tour guide in Siem Reap and role model for all of us. His village is 30 miles outside of Siem Reap.

Kim started to meet with the community heads and slowly but surely, with funding from his international contacts, provided not only a better environment for the teacher and schools but also the opportunity for more students to attend high school and evtl. college.   MORE >
