In Thmor Reap, a village in Cambodia, 300 children should be attending school. But only about 200 children are actually at school at the moment and they can’t go all day. In 1997, the old wooden school collapsed. Though it was rebuilt, it wasn’t big enough for the children of the village. Some children can’t go at all, the others go in shifts.

Stichting Scholenproject Cambodja Rotterdam, with. the financial support of the Marthe van Rijswijck Foundation, built 6 new classrooms, bringing the total up to 10. At 30 students per classroom, all children can now go to school all day

Below is the letter from governor Kratie, relaying his gratitude.
