Construction of Schoolrooms: October 2001

The process of construction of schoolrooms began in October in Siem Reap Province.

We are planning the construction of 9 different school rooms in 3 sites affiliated to villages adopted by NKFC in Siem Ream Province. Rohall School has been built thanks the hard work of the students of the Brigidine School in Windsor. At Ta Koh, one of the schoolrooms has been built with funds from NKFC USA, the other NKFC UK.
