Stephen Culbert, CEO at Alternate Power International (API) is an active member of Kempenfelt Rotary Club in Barrie, Ontario. In 2015, along with some Rotary Club members and their families, API volunteered to be part of the group to build a learning center, now called Rotary School of Cambodia located in Daunleb Village, Kouk Pring Commune, Svay Rieng, Cambodia.
During this trip, API also donated small off-grid systems to 10 small families in the village and a solar system to provide power to the school.
Again in 2016, API went back to Cambodia to build the second learning center in the same village. This second school is build for women to learn how to sew and eventually create living by selling the dresses they sew. Part of the new school serves as a Library.
