We are proud of the Stephen Mazujian Middle School! Located in the Arah Svay village just outside of Siem Reap, this school supports the students and families of not only the Arah Svay village, but also 11 other surrounding villages. This cluster of 12 villages represent some of the poorest villages in Siem Reap. Quite a sad paradox considering it is located within the Angkor Wat complex, which attracts millions of tourists each year.
Due to the transformative support from the Barefield Family, John Pinette & Pradit Phuangmalai, the Arah Svay village and many others, we have been able to complete the construction of 15 classrooms, a study hall, a library, a computer lab, a sport court, a well, an office, a farming patch and a Solar PV system at the Stephen Mazujian Middle School. In its first year of operation, this school gave an education to almost 350 students and employed 17 local Cambodian teachers and staff full time. Due to the great success of the students and staff, this school has expanded and now serves over 800 students and employees 32 local Cambodian teachers and staff full time.
