About our school

What we do and how

We provide education for students aged between 6 to 18yrs who typically come from farming and fishing backgrounds.

We have approximately 150 students who attend either morning or afternoon classes Monday to Friday.

Our students love to attend classes and they are appreciative and passionate about the opportunity.

We supply text and workbooks, study and writing materials, library books, computer access, and clean drinking water.

Being located in Siem Reap and the tourist area of Angkor Wat, learning English, basic computer skills, and gaining heritage awareness provides increased pathways to better-earning potentials and reduction in poverty.
