S.C.A.O. School III – Prey Ponror, Cambodia

The S.C.A.O. III Centre in Prey Ponror (38km outside Phnom Penh) opened its doors in December 2016. The ground floor is fully finished and classes have begun (with 150 children registered for class) but we still need to finish the 2nd floor (4 more classrooms for 300+ more students)), build the wall and gate, and build the accommodation for long term volunteers and teachers.

If you would like to donate or create a fundraising page to help realise this dream, then please click here.

Here’s the latest pic:

The aim of the school is to supplement the poorly run and under resourced public education system, focusing on free English (written & conversation) and computer classes.

Right now there are 150 children attending, but when we complete the 2nd floor, it is expected over 400 students will attend classes every day. There will also be the usual projects to improve water supply and healthcare etc in the surrounding village.
