2017-2019: The Beng Schoolhouse
After the success of the Sret Schoolhouse in 2017, we began fundraising for a second schoolhouse. This project was located in Beng Province, on the northern border of Cambodia. Again we partnered with the British Schools Foundation in England, and the project was managed by the Trailblazers USA--an NGO on the ground in Siem Reap. By the Spring of 2018, we had raised enough funds for the construction to begin. The project cost was $80,000, and construction took 11 months. The doors opened for 500 school children in January 2019. In March 2019 we were able to visit the children and watch as they learned in their new classrooms.
