Graduating Class of 2018

Eight years ago we celebrated our very first graduation, and we provided each of the 25 graduates with a bicycle, a new uniform, a pair of shoes and some school supplies, so there were no detriments to their continuing their education at middle school. We are very grateful to our donors who continue to support this tradition even when the number of graduates exceeds 100 children. A special thanks to Wei Ling Tan & friends, the Stiftung...

This is a great signal that our female students are being recognized and given more opportunities in the Cambodian society. We are proud of our student athletes and, later this year, we look forward to partnering with Kids Play International as they bring their sports programs to Cambodia to promote gender equality and education through sports. ...

Computers for the Children

The students and staff at Spitler School send out a special THANK YOU to our many donors, who made Spitler School a part of their year-end giving. Your support is sincerely appreciated, and we are putting it work for the benefit of 750 deserving children. We also wish to recognize three special donors who stepped up to help the school in a special way. We were shocked to learn that someone broke into our computer lab and stole the 15 laptop computers we were using to teach our computer classes. Before this happened, we needed more computers and Sarin was in the process of sourcing some used...
