Cambodia is a country with one of the youngest populations in Asia (50% of the population is under the age of 18), so education is considered one of the keys to the future development of the country.

Rural areas are totally neglected by the government, meaning children have little chance of access to education. In the rare case that there is a school in the most marginalised areas, the teachers are poorly trained, meaning the quality of education is poor, resulting in discrimination against these students.

Project Description

The objective is to guarantee access to the minimum necessary education (primary education) for children in villages that are cut off and isolated. Thanks to the creation of the school in Odam Chrey, the children from these communities have a healthy, accessible environment and safe infrastructures for their education.


This project allows children to attend school, prevents absenteeism, which is very high in rural areas, increases access to education and, above all, creates schools with a conducive environment to learning.

Alejandra de Benito: “In many remote villages in Cambodia, the lack of financial and human resources from the government makes it impossible to guarantee something as basic as primary education for children, making it a privilege rather than a fundamental right. The “Education in Remote Villages” team opens the door to a better future for them.

Building a school does not only bring about better learning, the intention is also to create an environment where the child is the main focus, having an impact on the whole community. The life around the new school fosters a bond between neighbours, parents, teachers and village authorities, who now understand the importance of education in the lives of young children and collaborate as best they can with the school and its needs. Often it is the pupils’ own parents, convinced of the benefits of going to school, who motivate other parents to ensure their children attend regularly”.
