BACKGROUND

Nam Phon Primary School, established in 2005, educates 308 students (162 boys, 146 girls) with 12 teachers (6 male, 6 female), including one volunteer. Situated between Nam Phon and Huay Harn villages, the school boasts four buildings with 10 classrooms. While two buildings, constructed in 2008 and 2010 respectively by an outside organisation and the community, are in good condition, the other two, erected in 2007 as temporary solutions, were severely dilapidated. Made of wood and zinc sheet metal, these buildings suffered from structural decay, extreme heat, and flooding issues, creating an unsuitable learning environment. Urgent replacement was necessary to provide students and teachers with a safe and conducive place for education.

OUTCOMES

In an effort to alleviate these problems, 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.
