Ongoing Needs

Uniforms, Notebooks, Flip Flops, ...

The children here are very happy with small things. They can play with stick, rocks and sand. So a little goes a long way. At our last visit, we bought 75 flip flops (75 cents each) for those kids who did not have any shoes and notebooks and a pen for everyone for the new school year. Before the hand out, all the students needed to line up and it was an exciting energy in the air. However most of them don't see white people a lot so there was a certain shyness among them. 

 

 

 

 


 

Rice bank

Rice is an important part of the Khmer food. All of the meals consist of rice and veggies and for special occasions meat. International donors gave the funds for the materials for a rice bank. The school and volunteers from the village built the rice bank, which works similar like a bank. At its official opening ceremony all of the villages donated some rice. Over 3,300 kg were collected. All this rice is being stored at the rice bank not only to cook meals for the children but also that families can borrow some rice if they don't have enough in between harvest seasons. The borrower then returns the rice after harvest including some interests also "paid" in rice. The community will continously refill the rice bank.  

 

Kitchen Floor

There is a cook at the school who cooks lunch for all students. For some of the students this is the only warm meal they get all day. The kitchen is small, has a wood burning stove and tables for preparing food. In the rainy season the floor of the kitchen would get wet and it was messy for the cook to do her work.

There was funding provided to pour a concrete floor for the kitchen.
