Built in 2011, The SCAO II School provides English (writing & conversation) and computer classes to over 250 registered students, all coming from Som Roung Village or the countryside surrounding it.
It offers classes from pre-school to pre-university, as well as healthcare, dental care, eye care and other social services such as water filters and mosquito nets.
Som Roung village…
Som Roung Village has roughly 600 residents. Most people rely on farming and rent land in order to make a living. Some of infamous garment factories of Cambodia lie nearby, and many women as young as 14 work in the factories to support their families. Other families run small shops from their homes.
The income levels of Som Roung have improved since the school was built, but still remain quite low.
