BACKGROUND

Meuang Phiang Primary School, established in 1941, is situated within one kilometer of two surrounding villages. The school comprises three buildings with 10 classrooms. While one building, supported by Room to Read in 2008, remains in decent condition, the other two, constructed in 1996 to accommodate increasing enrollment, were in dire need of replacement. Made of wood with dirt floors, these buildings suffered from termite infestation, structural deterioration, and inadequate ventilation, resulting in unbearable classroom conditions. With holes in the walls and roofs, rainy seasons exacerbate the situation, making the buildings unsafe and unfit for learning. 

OUTCOMES

In an effort to alleviate this problem, we constructed one new school building with six fully-furnished classrooms. The new classrooms offer a safe and conducive learning and teaching environment for the students and teachers. The construction of the new building emphasises the importance of education to the whole community and provides an incentive for the children to continue and complete their education. We also built four new toilets to help improve the sanitation standards at the school and to prevent hygiene-related illnesses.
