About Rolum Ro Primary School
Rolum Ro Primary School is located in Rolum Ro Village, Svay Leu District, Siem Reap Province, Cambodia. The school serves 140 students (60 boys and 80 girls), ranging from 5-13 years old and employs six female teachers. Rolum Ro Primary School had one wooden school building with two classrooms divided with makeshift walls. The building was built by the community in 2005 and is in poor condition, with deteriorating wooden pillars and wooden slat walls. During the hot season, the interior of the wooden building would become unbearably hot and when it rained, water entered the building through gaps and holes in the roof, causing intense foundational and structural damage. The dilapidated building was on the verge of collapsing and posed a very serious risk to the lives of teachers and students. To address this pressing situation, our local partner, Child’s Dream, supported Rolum Ro Primary School with the construction of one new concrete school building (to replace the wooden building), with five fully-furnished classrooms and three toilets.
