AllKids work with 4 local public schools with a total of 2,800 students to improve the standard of education and facilities for students. Of the 3 schools in the Ream Commune, none are connected to mains power and not even the principals have access to a computer or internet. School infrastructure is basic and there is limited money for maintenance so we work closely principals, teachers, and school administration staff to improve learning outcomes for students.
Since 2012, AllKids have worked closely with volunteer organizations including Project Vietnam Incorporated from Australia and CASIRA from French Canadia, to make vital improvements.
AllKids Clean School’s program in two major public schools provides garbage bins, liners and garbage removal service.
Class sizes commonly exceed fifty and teaching staff are limited by the minimal resources available. Many schools are in urgent need of repair but unfortunately they are not provided with funds to properly maintain buildings.
It is also not uncommon for several hundred students to share two or three toilet cubicles. The condition of these facilities is usually poor, lacking basic hygiene arrangements such as flushing toilets and running water to wash hands.
None of the schools in Ream have the facilities to provide children with safe drinking water.
