BACKGROUND

In 2018, Child’s Dream Foundation, with support from Classroom of Hope, constructed one building with six classrooms, which remains in excellent condition. Additionally, a building with five classrooms, built by the Cambodian Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports in 2004, is also safe and well-maintained. However, a third building, built in 1996, has deteriorated significantly and is on the brink of collapse. This unsafe structure poses a grave risk to the 1,007 students and 27 teachers at the school, who urgently need a safe and spacious environment to learn and teach.

OUTCOMES

The urgency of the situation spurred us into action. Working closely with our local partner, Child’s Dream, we swiftly implemented a solution: constructing a fully-furnished school building with five classrooms. This new facility not only ensures a safe learning environment but also fosters active student engagement and underscores the community’s commitment to education. By replacing the unsafe structure, we’ve created a positive and encouraging space for students and teachers alike to learn, grow, and thrive. Additionally, we installed eight new toilets to accommodate the growing student population, prioritizing hygiene and minimizing related illnesses.
