BACKGROUND

The school site comprised four buildings, housing a total of eight classrooms and five toilets. While one concrete building with three classrooms, constructed in 2002, was deemed safe and in reasonably good condition, the remaining structures posed serious safety risks. Among them, a concrete and wood building from 1993, with three classrooms, was severely deteriorated and on the brink of collapse. Additionally, two smaller buildings, erected by the community in 2019 and 2020 to address overcrowding, were found to be unsafe, featuring zinc sheet metal roofing and walls that exacerbated the already sweltering classroom temperatures. Despite well-intentioned efforts to alleviate overcrowding, a structurally sound and safe building constructed with quality materials and design is imperative to ensure the well-being and success of both students and teachers in the challenging Cambodian climate.

OUTCOMES

We offered our best solution for addressing the above critical issues by constructing one fully-furnished school building with five classrooms. The construction of the new school building encourages the students to fully participate in their schooling and will emphasise the importance of education to the whole community. Replacing the unsafe buildings with a new building creates a positive, safe, and encouraging space to learn, grow, and develop for both students and teachers. We also built six new toilets to proactively accommodate a growing student population ensuring that hygiene-related illnesses are minimalised.
