This school began with the dream of our CCD director, Sokhun, to bring education to his small village of Phum O (located 45 minutes outside of Siem Reap). Global ADE collaborated with teams and individuals from the US and Australia to make Sokhun’s dream a reality. As this project formed and took root, teams from Amazing Grace Spiritual Center (AGSC) and Genesis Spiritual Center (GSC), dove in to bring it to life. These teams raised funds for the campus, which includes a school, library, computer lab, playfields, a garden and toilets. AGSC and GSC recruited and brought volunteer teams to Phum O three times over eighteen months to assist with the campus development, including pouring concrete, painting, and the technical design and installation of a twenty-five seat computer lab.
The CCD currently focuses on English and computer training and serves almost 500 students. These students are so eager to learn and receive a quality education that many come to school on their days off to study and to play. The hard work and dedication of our students and teachers has led to not only a high attendance rate, but also an extraordinary graduation exam pass rates of 93% in 2016. We are proud of all the amazing education that the CCD is providing to our students!
