New Project: Sarsadam High School, Cambodia
In Hye Lee, Social Media Coordinator Compassionate Eye Foundation’s success is, in large part, made possible by our collaboration with organizations like Kids International Development Society (K.I.D.S.). In the past, CEF has worked with K.I.D.S. on various projects in Cambodia to provide communities with clean water, solar powered lights for schools, and a mobile health clinic.
For their latest project, K.I.D.S. again focuses on expanding educational opportunities in Cambodia, specifically the education of girls at Sarsadam High School. This project will build a private women’s washroom for approximately 600 female high school students and their teachers. Presently there are only four squat toilets for the school population of about 1000 students and there are no private sinks or hygienic cleaning areas. The new washroom will provide students and teachers with more privacy by building squat toilets with cubicles and a wash area. By building this washroom, CEF and K.I.D.S. will improve the attendance and achievement levels of female students and improve the working environment for female teachers.
The project is expected to be completed in 2015 and will support CEF’s goals of helping to expand educational opportunities and basic health services in developing nations. We look forward to this collaboration and future collaborations with K.I.D.S.
