About Us

Welcome to the Cambridge Cambodia School Project!

joy

We are a volunteer community learning about Cambodian students and how to best support the education of middle school students in rural Cambodia at the school we built in 2008: “The Cambridge Cambodia School.” The project grew out of a global awareness program in the Cambridge public schools and is now supported by many different Boston-area communities.

We welcome you to join our efforts to grow this educational two-way street: our Boston students become enriched, as do our friends in rural Cambodia.

Where is our school? It is in the village of Kauk Rovieng, Kampong Cham province, 65 km from Phnom Penh, a 1.5 hour drive. The famous Angkor Wat Temples in Siem Reap are 5 hours away by car.

How did we do this? The project spread “word of Mom” through Cambridge, MA and was made possible by a network of citizens collaborating together. We are the 405th school built by The World Assistance for Cambodia, an American family non-profit led by Bernie Krisher and his daughter, Debbie Krisher-Steele:¬†www.cambodiaschools.com.
