Two new classrooms for Jesus School, Phnom Penh

Posted by on 28/07/2013

We’d thought for a while about helping to add more rooms to the Jesus School in Phnom Penh. It was built to provide an education for the kids from the nearby rubbish dump, which has since closed, but student numbers have grown to 250 now and the original four room building is too small. The plan had always been to add another floor on top, but after obtaining a quote the cost was double what we had available. A friend suggested that we look at building a separate, single storey building and that is what we decided on. Paleriders – Cambodia already had a $5000 donation from a generous donor in Australia, which was to be used to build two more classrooms at the main primary school in Samroeng Village, Kampong Thom but another Australian had since donated the full amount for that project. The $5000 was diverted to the Jesus School, along with another $2000 from an Australian working in Laos. This was added to the $4000 which the Jesus School already had to use for the project.
