BACKGROUND

Banteay Meanrith Primary School had two concrete school buildings with a total of 11 classrooms. The building built in 2004 with five classrooms is still in good shape and can last for some more years. The other concrete building built in 1996 with six classrooms was deteriorating fast. The building hardly offered any protection from the extreme and harsh weather conditions. With substandard materials and poor workmanship combined, the fast-decaying building was beyond repair and in dire need of replacement. The students clearly lacked a safe and suitable infrastructure to focus on their learning. A collapsing building was the main concern.

OUTCOMES

We supported Banteay Meanrith Primary School by constructing a new concrete building with six furnished classrooms and four additional toilets. The improved facilities are expected to encourage parents from Banteay Meanrith and nearby communities to send their children to school, leading to higher literacy rates and lower dropout rates. This improvement also offers children in the village the chance for more self-determined lives, with an anticipated increase in continuation to secondary and high school.
