We have just agreed to fund the building and equipping of a computer room at a brand new school being built by UK Nepali charity Pipal Tree in Bhatighadi, southern Nepal. This school will serve the poorest and most marginalised students in the area whose current school (pictured) is dilapidated and dangerous.
On 25 January our new five-classroom school building in Andong Teuk commune, Koh Kong province officially opened. It will help more than 105 children access quality education and will replace the unsafe building and lack of hand-washing facilities, playground and basic classroom equipment. Here are the 'before' and 'after' photos!
Some of our projects in Nepal and Cambodia are still currently closed due to the Coronavirus lockdown. We are monitoring the needs of the communities they serve and have provided emergency relief packages to families in one community in Nepal and three in Cambodia.
