BACKGROUND

When our local partner first visited the school, they noted the School Director’s dedicated efforts over the past five years to enhance school facilities. Collaborating with international NGOs and the community, they installed a playground, washing stations, and concreted large areas of the school grounds, making it a model institution. However, the old wooden school building was deteriorating, with only two out of four classrooms usable. Compounding the issue, the classrooms were below the flood plain, rendering them unusable from July to October. Annually, staff and children cleaned out floodwater, rearranged furniture, and resumed classes in November. Consequently, a new building was urgently needed. Now, a new school building with four fully furnished classrooms and two new toilets has been constructed at Buo Khnar Primary School.

OUTCOMES

Buo Khnar Primary School now has a new school building with four fully furnished classrooms for a safer and more motivating learning environment. Two new toilets have also been built to improve sanitation standards and prevent hygiene-related illnesses. The provision of a new school building underlines the importance of education to the children as well as the whole community and will encourage them to attend school regularly. We also expect a decline in dropout rates among primary-level students. With a quality learning environment, parents from Buo Khnar Village are encouraged to allow their children to pursue education, and children are incentivised to continue and finish their primary education.
