Project Cambodia Updates (as at February 2012)

Rain Water Tank Project

  By the end of February 2012, we have been able to build over 4009 water tanks in 488 schools in five provinces including Kampot and Kampot Speu provinces. We built about 100 -120 tanks a month depending on the donations. These water tanks provide fresh water for over 180,000 children for the first time in their life, a huge health plus.     
       

Dental Clinic Project

Our three Dental clinics, including one mobile clinic, are surging ahead and have treated over 7,000 children since they opened their doors. We are thankful to our full time dentist Mr Kim, two Dental Assistants and the volunteers sent by Cecilia So from Sydney and some other countries, mainly Asian and Australian dentists, generous with their time. Our dentists along with the volunteers are able to treat more than 1000 children a month. They do outreach at outlying schools thanks to our new “Dental Clinic in a suitcase” along with a folding chair.

English Classes

By the end of March 2012, we have been able to open 77 English classes with a total of 2,500 students. These classes are facilitated by 45 teachers. This includes 2 classes that were opened recently for top students to give them extra help.

Computer Classes

By the end of February 2012, we have been able to train 155 students in the 13 computer classes that we opened in different regions of Cambodia.

Non-Formal Schools

We now have 9 non-formal schools under our care.
